US Gulf braces for rain from tropical depression


NEW ORLEANS (AP) — A slow-moving tropical depression was slogging toward the U.S. Gulf coast Friday, packing walloping rains that could drench the region with up to 20 inches (50 centimeters).


Sure would be nice if this would veer over to Texas.


Notice that the image they used is actually in New Jersey?

Weather Forecasters have been saying Relief is on the way then probably now Houstonians may be disappointed in the lack of rain from this Tropical Depression. Forecasting 1/2 inch all weekend. Temperature is supposed to drop. Hell yes from 105 to 102, Forecasted about 96 and yes 6-degrees makes a big difference...

Well, shït. That's not even enough rain to knock the dust off a duck.


I'm hoping you guys get some rain soon. You don't need twenty inches in a day. That would put out the fires, but it would also run off. You need twenty inches over ten or fifteen days.

The closest to a tropical storm I am going to get this weekend is a umbrella drink with a broken umbrella.

Just one of the reasons im not going to the game, cold front moving in.

I've lived in the Texas panhandle all my life, I have never seen it this dry...ever

looks like hope moving in.

I've been worried about you Texans. (I have a good bit of family there, especially Wichita Falls.) There are a lot of your ranchers coming up here to buy hay this year. (I'm in Wisconsin these days.)


Our summer is over. We have our first early fall cold front moving in tonight. Lows tonight around 52. The next three days will have highs around 60-65 and lows tomorrow night around 40-45!

Skeeters are going away and it's time for camp fires!

We lost two crops of cotton, and one crop of maze on our farms this year. 4900 achers dryland.

Thank God for insurance! I posted pictures of last years crop, on the old forum.

It's been very hot here this year and no rain. gaah.gif

Between the drought, extreme heat and fires, you guys are just about hell on hearth.

That's why I was hoping one of these tropical storms would head your way. Just don't want it to make the switch to flash floods is all.

The ground is so dry here in Houston and shifting due to the drought and extreme heat we have just under 1,000 water main breaks here in the city alone. The Mayor announced yesterday we have just now hit under 1000. Averaging 200 water main breaks per day and the city + Contractors can only patch about 150.

Think our highest was 1,133 breaks total.

Rationing water but water my house foundation when I feel the need to. City will not fix peoples house foundations when they crack/break. And they will do it. Even moreso when it starts raining again when the soil shifts back. Have 6-soaker hoses wrapped around my house.

Also watering my trees, they are dying all over the city. The limbs get brittle a break during high winds because of water starvation. It's a mess. Foundation repairmen will have a hayday when it stats raining again.Neighbor across the street has a 1 1/2 inch gap between house and soil. Doors are sticking. Advised him to slowly water his slab...He never heard of watering a house foundation before

It's a damn shame when you have to use what little water there is to keep your foundation from cracking.
