How Much Rain Has Fallen In Texas?

By Charles W. Stenholm

In the month of May, Texas received over 35 trillion gallons of rain.  See the graphic, below, to put that into perspective.

Many prayers were answered as we went from extreme drought to an overabundance of rainfall.  Truly a blessing!  It is much more difficult to do without water than deal with having too much.  Just wish the loss of life and property could be avoided.  We did, however, see many of the benefits of investing in flood control pay some dividends.
