Thanks Carl,

 

I need to get down to the border to lead a couple of mission trips, and it's been pretty hairy in North Texas! Might leave today and try to miss what's headed towards us, and hopefully miss what's coming towards Central Texas.

Thanks for the prayers.

Thanks for thinking about us Carl. Houston has been real lucky to be on the far edge of these storms and we have not had any major flooding. One county north of us, they had a reservoir threatening to bust it's own dam due to the weight of the water it suddenly found itself holding back.

 

Rocky, drive safe my friend.

Rocky,

 

Where are you in North Texas? I was raised just west of Wichita Falls. Now you know why I'm living in East Tennessee, :)

We were staying off of HWY 380 just south of Aubrey. I used to own a home in Plano.

 

Now we are at Cabela's in Buda and will leave sometime early in the morning. Was dodging all the storms and tornadoes to get down here. Sheri was on her Ipad with the weather app on Sat View and it really helps.

Assuming that you're planning to come all the way in from Buda tomorrow, the AccuWeather forecast for the Valley isn't too bad, Rocky. They're saying "A shower or thundershower in spots" for tomorrow, but that was basically yesterday's forecast for today, too, and other than being humid all day and overcast at times, it's been a pretty decent day. Just figure on it being hot and humid when you get here.

Which dam was that? Dams should normally be able to handle the weight of the water behind them, and should have a suitable spillway and/or floodgates to keep the dam from overtopping. Years ago, I learned that the forces acting on the dam are related to the basic weight of water and simple square inches - the surface area of the lake doesn't actually affect the forces upon the dam.
