Tropical Storm Hermine

We got lots and lots of rain over the past couple of days. 8-12 inches in our area depending on how close to downtown you live. While we loved the rain I can understand why some did not because it did do a lot of water damage and sadly some lost their belongings and in one sad case here in Austin one lady lost her life. One wonders why someone would risk their life by driving around warning signs and barricades but it's something that happens every time if floods. Below are a few pictures of some of the affected areas. I took the first two but the one of Barton Springs now and before the flood is from the web.
