"The Gate" Batesville, Texas 74 degrees and mostly cloudy and humid to 91 degrees and partly sunny.

I had purchased another decking board and made one more small section of deck completing a square. Just a normal weekend level of gate traffic in and out. Opening and closing the gate while watching college football on the television.

"The Gate" Batesville, Texas 79 degrees and cloudy and humid to 80 degrees and cloudy. Then the rain, thunder, lightening and wind, I had to roll in the large awning as we had high wind gusts and the awning was billowing up.

Streams on the edge of the road
The road going into the pads slops down to the gate and there are streams of water flowing around the sides of the road with a puddle on the far side that has cut a for the water to flow out and down to low ground beyond the puddle area. During all this there were oil trucks going in and out a water removal truck and the usual pickup trucks. And then the real rain came down. The streams of water on the edge of the road were a foot wide, there were two flood warnings on the telephone, that annoying alert sound at first I did not know what electronic device was trying to warn me. There are some that continue to come during the rain as this work does not stop for weather. The road in from the paved highway must be a nightmare, as I came back last Friday evening there were big dust clouds following all vehicle driving the road. Today that has got to be soupy mud,

This puddle is across from
