Quite a rain that came with the tornado that hit Bowie Texas last night. The whirlwind went North of my place and hit the town. I drove around the town for awhile today. I didn’t see it all but mostly it was big trees down and, in some cases, on buildings. Lots of shingles and metal off houses and businesses.

Best cafe in town caught on fire and is history.

I’ve owned the place for almost 40 years and never had a rain that size. Some roads to repair with rocks due to washouts.

Since I don’t live there, no idea how long it took to get the rain.

It's not about the fish. It's about the pond. Take care of the pond and the fish will be fine. PB subscriber since before it was in color.

I’m glad you’re OK! That’s terrifying.

Glad you’re ok David - hope Bowie residents are likewise safe.

We had a tornado hit our place last month. Lost a few dozen big trees but that was it. I was a half mile awhile when it went through but had no idea.

When I read the thread title, I thought Guv was trying to brag.....


Excerpt from Robert Crais' "The Monkey's Raincoat:"
"She took another microscopic bite of her sandwich, then pushed it away. Maybe she absorbed nutrients from her surroundings."

Old saying in Texas. It ain’t bragging if you can do it, have done it, or have it.

Ponds did well. Of course, I now have ponds in places that have seldom been wet. My creek got about 6 ft higher than normal for a short time. Had to get out tractor and FEL to haul rocks to washed out areas on road. I almost lost it (as in flipping over) on a 4 wheeler this morning before doing repairs..

For a short time, my water holes look like they are in East Texas.
