There has been a lot of rain, raining now in fact. There have been storms, hail, had a tornado just west of me a couple of days ago. Everything is growing like crazy. Your blind situation is hit or miss, might be fine and might be wiped out.

Hoping the worst of it went South of us, we're far Northern Eastland county. Radar has made it look like the severe stuff went around us.

Having said that, I'll probably go out there to find my trailer on it's side.

I will know more in a few hours, will be out there today. Land owners house is gone, they are bruised, battered cuts and scrapes but alive for which I am truly thankful, not worried at all about the stands and feeders.

Know there is lots to do, one if fix gate where emergency services when in. Beyond that lots of cleanup and try to help salvage all we can for them.

News said there was an unconfirmed touchdown at lake Leon? Hope you find everything the way you left it.

Straight lined winds will probably get as many folks as the twisters have, as far as property damage.

Never a good thing when the landowner calls you at 8am on a Sunday. We had built a 40'x12' patio cover on our trailer a year or two ago, apparently it's in one piece, about 75 feet away from where we built it. Gonna take mom out to lunch for her special day and then head on out there. Hopefully the tower blinds made it.

I hate, hate, that punched in the gut feeling.

My lease is north of Cisco about 3 mi south of Moran, was watching the radar last night, looked like worst part of that storm just brushed the property. Sure hope my trailer is still right side up. Fighting the urge to head that way myself.

Feel for those folks just S. of Cisco.

I'm 7 miles south of Moran. No wind damage at all. A little over 3 inches of rain in the last 24 hours and probably the worst lightning storm I've ever experienced. You should be OK. Unless you have a gravel road, probably be pretty muddy getting in.

That's reassuring for sure. Really appreciate the update. Save me a trip in this weather.

I live 6 miles SW of Eastland on CR 190 We had high winds and baseball size hail along with 6 1/2inches of rain ripped limps off of trees and destroyed our roof. we actually watched the path of this storm out our front door. I haven't been down that way yet but also heard there was a path of destruction along the path of the leon River.
