"It is now highly feasible to take care of everybody on Earth at a higher standard of living than any have ever known. It no longer has to be you or me. Selfishness is unnecessary. War is obsolete. It is a matter of converting our high technology from WEAPONRY to LIVINGRY."

Filling Texas up from the bottom

It's amusing, the way Americans draw their maps... They don't even see it as odd.

The image the from National Weather Service shows 24-hour precipitation in southern Texas ending at 7 am CDT this morning. The white area represents 10" or more.

Hope things are going well down in the valley - on both the side which exists and the one which doesn't. Dolly is losing energy but still is providing plenty of moisture. Up here we got a few sudden splats but that's it.
