    rain for the highland lakes?

    radar showing some rain in that area, but is it enuf to make any difference? notice how little has been showing up in the media abt the low lakes levels since there was some significant rain downstream? kinda makes you wonder if anyone is paying attention; "it rained a lot at my house, so everything must be OK"..........................

    Looking at Hydromet, The upper Perd has got nearly an inch - only a quarter in Johnson City. Most of the Llano (LBJ) basin has gotten an inch. Looks like the Buch basin did even better, with between 1" and 2.5".

    1 and 2 inch rains arent gonna cut it. You need heavy down pours and floods to make any impact on the highland lakes

    Wow, I check this once or twice a month...first time they've mentioned a chance of El Niño conditions in several years. Could mean increasing rain chances for us in the coming months.

    The last El Nino period was summer '09 through spring '10, and it did wonders for the Highland Lakes.

    Of course an El Nino doesn't guarantee more rain, but...
