Everybody ok out there?

San Antonio was pounded with rain today, with most parts of town reporting several inches of precipitation. It was just the latest storm in what's been a rainy few weeks in the Alamo City (although thankfully no hail this time). The soil is saturated, creating ideal conditions for flooding.
