Was reported we had 5.54 inches in southern Duval.

That puts us at average rainfall for the whole year as of today.

I had a good slow rain with 1.79" here at my house in Western Goliad County. Talked with my cousin yesterday evening around 6 and he had already gotten 2.5" in the Atascosa, Karnes and Live Oak corner. More after that. Spoke with a friend in Brady later last night and he only got .60" out of all this so far. Going to check my other gauge on the north end to see what it shows.

Not much in the immediate area that will get into the river above the lake, seems like most of the good rains were south and north/east of the lake. Atascosa and Nueces Rivers seem to have gotten more rain than the Frio did in that area. Some pockets had really good rains though. I am sure this will help Mathis Lake out.

Had 1.98" on the north end of my place. Pockets around the area look to have only had 1/2" out of this so far but still have a great chance thru Thursday as of today.

Choke levels did rise a bit from the rains in March and April though. More rain is building down South West of me right now.

Ya'll be careful with all that prayin for rain stuff...end of january Texoma was at 608-609 and I could & did walk around on dry ground behind my boathouse. As of this morning the lake level is 626+ and getting 1.1 MILLION Gallons A SECOND in runoff...'n all this in just the last 30-45 days. Local weather guy calling for 630+ lake levels by Friday + the runoff from the 3-4 day rain system coming in tonite. Feast or Famine is more like Gluttony or Famine.

Wonder how that guy from Del Rio won the FLW tour event here weekend before last...

Let it rain and I will never talk bad about any rain. With rain it seems to be either chicken or feathers, been way to many years of feathers for me. Flooding is a different ball game.

I wont turn the rain away. I bet we have a deer blind and two feeders that are standing in water about 2 feet deep due to a pond that is way overflowed.

That is why I don't have water front property or land with a creek/river frontage. Water front property will sooner or later be under-water front property with these Texas rainfall patterns. I hate fixing fences or water gaps after a flood, so I specifically looked for land that fit what I wanted.
