Default Any DFW brothers getting washed out?

Any DFWers cooking today? First rain in months pushing through. Will at least wash the dirt layer off the Klose.

Rain in North Texas? Hmmph! I'm not falling for that old "Weatherman Scam" again. It doesn't rain in North Texas. At least not lately.

I'm in SA but I told the better half to just leave the soaker hoses running on the timer. The ground is so hard and dry that a lot of that rain will just run off.

Guys, it is HOT, but, 1980 was the muther of all summers in the FW/Dallas area. It was 69 straight days over 100 degrees and there were many, many days over 110.

I remember that one. I was young, but I remember my folks complaining. Having grown up in Dallas area, I feel lucky to have been a part of many freaky weather related incidents.

Been in 2 tornados, plenty of heat waves, freak snowstorms in April, and then the exploding frozen trees.... I think it was in 1983 or so.

That was my first year in DFW. AC went out in my apt. Had to sleep on the patio, place was crawling with Gays. I was concerned to say the least.

Raining as I type now! Thank you Lord!

Lake Lavon is 15' low, hopefully we'll get some runoff. I'd like to be able to use a boat ramp. This is a ramp we use in the winter a buddy took (his boy). The other is the marina from across the cove. Boats are sitting on dry land...

Wow, is that the Marina on the Allen side? I forgot the name, Collin County, or something like that, I know the Baptist Encampment is up North of there. That used to be a pretty good spot to fish. Could launch from there and ski around the dam...

That is scary looking, glad to see y'all are getting rain today!

That's East Fork Marina due South of the Baptist Encampment. The Trinity River looks like a creek at the north end, and I don't think there's any water around the 380 bridges and North. The only ramp that is somewhat usable is one from the 70's before the lake was enlarged, it's now out of the water.
