April 2016 = 6-8" of rainfail in most of Central Texas

April ended with one last storm rolling through Central, TX pushing 737s airplanes around the tarmac with winds over 60 mph at the ABIA.  The latest storms firmly putting us over 6" of rainfall for the month with some areas getting closer to 8" south and to the east.

This past week saw 22,000+ people loose power in the Austin Energy service area.

A tornado even plopped down near Elgin early Saturday morning downing trees and witnesses saw a trampoline on a power line. Power is still not restored in parts of Elgin.

Some parts of Texas,  West of La Grange saw over 20" and we only can offer condolences to the people in Houston, Palestine, and Gulf Coast area as they saw severe flooding throughout the month with loss of property as well as lives.

Be safe and don't irrigate until the ground drys out!
