critical reading for the rude

texas rain

Weather patterns shifting.

Dead-dry in Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, Florida.

Total saturation in Texas.


MARBLE FALLS, Texas – Constant downpours that have claimed 11 lives in the past 10 days are giving Texans in the central hill country little chance to recover…“This is the worst I’ve ever seen it in my lifetime,” said Mayor Raymond Whitman, 47, who has lived in Marble Falls his entire life… Whitman Branch Creek in Marble Falls, typically 2-3 feet wide, expanded to at least 100 feet. Several nearby buildings were flooded and several vehicles were swept down the creek. The odor of gas and diesel fuel was heavy in the air… Flooding washed out three bridges and tore off the back wall of the funeral home, Whitman said.

  1. It’s like we live in the tropics now. Cloudy morning, sunny lunch, rainy evening. Every day… the daily change is monotonous. Hopefully we’ll get back to hot and dry in the metroplex in July! Yeah! I’m not sure if the rain is keeping people out of our library, or driving them in! I know the weather in the 80’s isn’t making them come in for the A/C!

    On another note, I’m trying to organize and classify the society of the library. I’ve started on my myspace page, but I’m only familiar with public libraries.
