Born and raised here in San Antonio (San Antone), and I've gotta say that this is more rain than I have seen in my life time. Once in the 70's the water came up to the hwy 90 bridge, but last week it was over the hwy and had to be shut down. I've never seen culebra shut down, but this last week, it was for a couple of hours until the water level dropped. As for the Dam, I'm thankful I don't live by it or near it or in its path. Hopefully we are through with the rain for a while. The hardest thing is keeping idiot motorists out of the high water. It's beyond me how someone could see water rushing over the road, with water markers indicating 4,5 or 6 feet high, and they still think they can cross in a compact car. Bunch of morons

Foat Wuth? I've lived around Dallas my whole life - McKinney, Allen, Plano, Dallas, Carrollton, Little Elm - and have never heard it pronounced that "Foghorn Leghorn"(Georgia, Mississippi, Alabama) way. ????? The way I've always heard it and always pronounced it myself is to get lots of "r"s in there. Forrrt Werrrrrth.

If, as has been plainly stated here no fewer than 163,539,298,012,876 times, Texas is "heaven", then why is God pissing all over y'all?
