The Rain

Well, as most of you know, it has really been raining here a lot lately. We took the kids to see the Tom Miller Dam releasing waters from the floodgates today. It is a pretty amazing site. It is actually kind of scary because the water is up so high and moving so fast and hard. It is hard to believe that we were in extreme drought conditions this time last year. I am not sure if I have ever seen the water this high - and apparently many others haven't either. The bridge was jammed packed with cars and other pedestrian the entire time we were there. What an amazing site!

#1 I am shocked that YOU would let your kids walk on a bridge with traffic.
#2 Isn't the rain and all the water crazy!? We have been going down to the park every other day to look at the lake level. yesterday it was a foot OVER the pool. I should get down there with the digital camera today. The opened the flood gates on Marble Falls so all that water comes in our lake. It gets higher every day, rain or no rain.
