Record-setting rainfall

After all that rain yesterday, the Trinity is only going to flood a little bit. (Thank you, Dallas’ Only Daily Newspaper, for that update.) So, of course, it’s safe to build a tollway on the levees, and the Army Corps of Engineers is just bunch of silly old grandmas.

I was going to link to the city’s webcam at the Margaret Hunt Hill bridge so we could see what a little bit of flooding looks like, but the camera has been down since Aug. 29. Budget cuts, maybe?

    So flood level is 30 ft and the Trinity is at 44 ft as of this morning and rising. And what was the elevation of the proposed tollroad? Yeah right, building a tollroad within a floodway is a brilliant idea. Oh yeah, we forgot that we cannot engineer nature.
