It took me four days





Spotted this Vette at the war memorials this afternoon.

* Words and photos: Blanco River flooding:

Central Texans have been watching and hoping for a “rain bomb” to thoroughly extinguish a years-long drought and replenish dangerously low reservoirs. A former governor even suggested that Texans pray for such relief.
Overnight Saturday, that big rain came, dumping up to a foot of rain over a large expanse of the Hill County, Austin and points to the east. The rainfall sparked a rapid rise in storage lakes throughout the area, but the storm exacted a steep price.
