Lucky number 13, eh? I hope this one brings no damage and plenty of much needed rain to the area!

Some areas may get more rain than they bargained for. Too bad it can't all be evenly spread around! I hope you guys get your share... soon.

Well it does look promising (rain!) and not too threatening (wind).

Rain would be nice but, praying that it stays a depression or minimal tropical storm.

It's now a tropical storm ("Lee") and is no longer going to hit any part of Texas.

We've had a lot of bummers in Texas since this all started.

Well it looks like Lee came through for us. It has been raining most of the day here.

We're feeling the wind but not sure if it's Lee, or the front moving from the north?

Lots of wind here but not a drop. Looking at the doppler I doubt it'll reach you. I'm glad for you, though, Jay.

I think the entire country has been pulling for a nice tropical depression to come sit on top of Texas for a couple days & give you guys some relief but we just haven't been able to wish it into happening. Crying
I am a strong believer in the simple fact is that what matters in this life is how we treat others. I think that's what living is all about. Not what I've done in my life but how I've treated others.

It looks to me as if Lee is changing course, could we get some of its rain after all?

Porkpal, you didn't get any rain from it so far? They're forecasting the center to move NE (albeit very slowly) but it looked like East Texas got some of it yesterday.
