9 Inches of Rain, but the Drought’s Not Over

It's been pretty wet in the Crossroads so far this year with official tallies showing as much as 9 inches in some areas on Wednesday. Honestly, I have no idea about the drought, it just seems like every year when we get some rain, the first thing you hear is "the drought's not over." Again, I'm no expert, but I'd say we are not in a drought at the moment.

Other rainfall reports said there was 9 inched in Jackson and DeWitt Counties, and Inez registering 7 inches. At Calhoun County Airport, officials listed right around 3 1/2 inches of rainfall. No significant problems were reported from the rainfall, but minor river flooding is expected.

Sometimes that's not so easy to stay on top of, like if you're not listening to the radio, or watching television, but being aware of the situation should be a little easier, with a new system in place. Starting Thursday, smartphones will be receiving alerts from the National Weather Service about potentially dangerous weather and emergencies so we can all react and plan faster.

Where Were You When the Lights Went Out?

Storms across south Texas knocked out power for about 2,000 people in Port Lavaca early this  morning, which made me think about power outages we've had here in Victoria, and how much we depend on electricity. Electricity is something we take for granted pretty easily. You don't even really think about it, that is until it's not there. TVs, computers, lights, washers, dryers, almost everything we use around the house depends upon electricity.

Scottish Guy Freaks About Wind Storm

Watch the vid. Living here in South Texas, how many of us have to stake down our trampolines and playground sets because of the gusting winds? Probably a lot of us.

I actually had a trampoline thrown by the wind not too long ao. In fact, in my old ass 1902 house, the wind blew so hard against a particular side of my house, the cabinets on my kitchen wall were all wide open when I woke up one Sunday morning. So the 100 mph winds in this video doesn't necessarily impress me. BUT...the hilarious Scottish accent does. Check it out.
