Row, Row, Row your boat
gently thru my yard. The rain started a little before noon and has stopped a few times but never for more than 20 minutes at a time. Most of the time the rain is nice, gentle rain then there are the waves of bucketsfull hitting the roof. Those waves usually last about 15 minutes. If we were getting constant waves like that it would be really bad around here. With mostly gentle rainfall the really large rain gauge out back only shows just under 2 inches.
The path from the backdoor to about 15 feet into the yard is under roughly 3 inches of water, I have not been able to get out into the rest of the yard to check things out but I am sure the gnomes are building rafts for thier escape. I guess if we had crawdads here there would be some of those crawdad chimneys out there too.
There was a tornado on the ground about 3 hours south of me and we are under tornado watches until after 8.
Two tornado warnings about an hour south of us.
There was a tornado warning that caused some stress out at DFW Internation Airport.
A tornado watch means that weather conditions are ripe for the formation of a funnel cloud.
A tornado warning means one has been spotted either in the clouds or on the ground.
This is weather we should have been getting in the spring not in December. But since we do not get much real winter, we have had tornadoes year round...there really is no tornado season down here.
The rain had let up here for about 10 minutes then just now the lightening got really bright and the rain is back. Supposed to last all night with some of the heaviest rain coming overnight.

Toni, you guys are getting pretty soggy out there. One of these days, please take a pic of that "really large rain gauge out back." I am dying to see how big it really is.
Gosh your weather sounds a lot like ours - apart from the tornadoes, although one did hit London, England recently. It did quite a bit of damage too which is totally unheard of in Britian as a rule. We now have gale force winds with warnings to drivers to only go out in their cars if it's really necessary. This kind of weather usually hits us in March!!!
We are due to get it in about 2 hours, they say we may get as much as 5 inches tonight. So much for any yard work on my days off.
Well,a tornado hit as the crow flys about 4 miles just off I-45 wiped out the cell
