Yep, been stuck inside Friday and all day Today, Practicing de-soldering components from old circuit boards, and watching Dr. Who and online game videos. It is still raining, I had to empty the gauge, 6" so far here.

I don't feel young. :wallbanging: .The Kids had downloaded seasons 1 - 7. Been watching and deleting them, it took up all the available HD space. I live on a hill, and have excellent drainage, not so good for the folks at the bottom of the hill. It is still raining, another tenth since I dumped it an hour ago, and no signs of quitting soon.

I missed the comment, that is my Grandson, I try to give him projects to do, but sense Old Girl is done I decided to show him how to remove components from a circuit board with something other than a hammer. Was going good till the second board and the iron slipped, He is fine, slight red spot on his finger. Try dropping a solder blob on your thigh in shorts. :mad2: .  I have scored a couple good bridge rectifiers, and a bunch of caps and resistors. Hope to use some of these to fix the COBY 38" LCD TV that has a bad screen flicker at turn on.

Been watching your area on the news.  Have niece that is a teacher in Dallas.  You guys are really getting hit hard with rain.  A lot will soak in the cracks then it start to clean the culverts out and fill the holding ponds.

I was watching the weather last nite late and wondered about you guys.
Talk about your feast or famine.

I had the pleasure to experience you beautiful state once. That much rain after that much dry makes me remember something.
I have stepped in a lot of things, some behind the barn, and almost nothing compares to the mud you guys have down there for sticky-slippy.
Closest thing we have is our clay and it would give it a run for the money. TD&H explained it was something called bentonite. Once on your shoes, it's tenacious and it's like trying to walk on greased glass.

Stay safe, stay dry, and for God sake- stay on the sidewalk

 From the local news this morning. "As of 8 a.m. Sunday morning more than 11 inches of rain fell in Waco, over 7 inches in Temple, 6.61 inches in Killeen, and almost 21 inches of rain fell in Corsicana."

 

Still raining here. and another 1.5" in the rain gauge. Makes a total of 7.5" here so far.
