Three days ago rain came to the area and I received about 4.5 inches of moisture. The pond, seen above, rose three feet from run-off water. Many areas of Texas, not just central West Texas, received sufficient rain to fill lakes and ponds. The run-off was severe and water flooded roads. Burn bans have been lifted. I have read news reports that the drought has been lifted. My pond has not been this full in over two years.
