Yesterday's weather ALMOST hit Brewster county. I suspect Independence Creek was raging.

"Copious amounts of rain were noted with some of these storms with some basins in the Independence Creek Watershed in Terrell County receiving around
eight inches of rain"
Not all those who wander are lost.

I am hardly believing my eyes. It rained yesterday morning for almost an hour, it raind yesterday afternoon, it rained early this morning, and now it is raining again. This is in ector county and hope we get enough to run into our lakes around here. Some of our lakes are completely dry.

May God bless ya'll with rain.
Leave "quit" at the car.  Embrace the trail as your friend.  Expect to enjoy yourself, and to be amazed.

I was in Comstock the last three days. It misted/sprinkled rain off and on during the night and every morning up until about 9. Watched a huge storm with lots of lightening across the Rio over in Mexico. It didn't move for several hours. The radar this morning (5/26) shows that area in Val Verde county getting some pretty good rains.
