We wanted rain and boy did we get some! It began after midnight and it went on for hours. I went to check the kitchen where we have had problems in the past, that were fixed a couple of years back. Glad I did because the top portion of the window was leaking and I caught it just in time.
Since I do not buy the local newspaper and their e-edition in practically worthless I have no idea how Del Rio fared. However, Ciudad Acuna, Coahuila has an excellent newspaper El Zocalo with an equally good webpage. http://www.zocalo.com.mx/seccion/articulo/pierden-todo-cientos-de-familias-1403333432
There I learned that one person drowned, 500 people had to be evacuated at the height of the storm to shelters and many more were rescued from atop their roofs this morning. Actually, many cities in the state of Coahuila flooded due to this weather system.
I cross this road on the way to Bodegas Aurrera (grocery story owned by Walmart) over Las Vacas creek which rarely has any water but now resembles a river.
Hope everyone got a good dose of liquid gold and that you were not adversely affected.
Good night. May you all have Terlingua Dreams.
