Those praying for rain in North Texas have perhaps overdone it. We’re getting flash floods and the wettest May in many years.  To the south of us,  areas that were very dry are now experiencing the flooding of the San Marcos and Blanco Rivers.  Parts of the area have received more than 1-1/2 feet of rain since May 1, six times what it typically receives in all of May.
