In the past month or more we have had high humidity, and weather reports indicating 20-100% chances of thunderstorms just about every day. One morning last week, we had torrential rain with waterfalls coming off of awnings and roofs. Then this morning, starting around 4 am, we had a huge thunderstorm come over south San Antonio. Thunder rumbled and cracked, the storm was slow moving and stayed over us from 4 am until about 9 am. When we looked outside, here's what we saw...You have to understand that the ground was completely saturated from previous storms, so the water had nowhere to go. It will go down in about six hours, after the storm water drains empty enough for this to go somewhere.

|There is one site between us and the park model.|
|Yes, that's our picnic table.|
|And our vehicles.|
|We knew the cats weren't going anywhere!|
|But they were very curious.|

|Our site and the site this side of us.|
It wasn't as high as two years ago on Memorial Day weekend, but it had rapids and some of the small trees were in the water.

Suffice it to say, we're doing well and having fun. Travel Bug out.
