    I took off work early to deal with water coming into my garage. Had to run to the store and snapped these pics while I was out. I got 4+ inches of rain last night while I was asleep. My rain gauge was overflowing so it could have been more. It rained for several hours after that and this is the result.

    This is a house about a mile down from me.

    You know those people that we laugh about with the 20+ inches of lift on their trucks, Well I bet they are laughing at us now because they finally have a chance to use their mall crawling disco trucks.

    The DFW area ended up with as much as 10 inches of rain. I had about three inches of rain here.
