Harvey’s rainfall potential

Looks like just 1 to 4 inches of rain for the Austin area, which is good. No likely flooding for us. According to KVUE: “The most significant tropical storm locally in recent memory affected Central Texas in 2010. Tropical Storm Hermine brought 14-16″ of rain in Williamson County and 7″ at Camp Mabry [in central Austin]. Three people died at low-water crossings.” JD, down at the Mouth of the Brazos, could be in for a lot more.

UPDATE: Forecast for us Thursday morn (the 24th) has upped the rain totals considerably. Depends how fast Harvey moves and how far west. JD’s expecting to lose a pecan tree and, as usual, the power lines. We lose our power lines to a stiff breeze.
