Texas Flooding

texas flood    Check out the 24-hour rainfall totals in Texas, with 11.33″ at Sunset Valley and over 10″ near Austin.   Carrizo Springs reported 10.65″, 9.5″ fell in just 6 hours at Big Wells and Cotulla had 7.03″ in 6 hours.  Roads have been washed out and some schools have been closed for Monday.  The Austin City Limits Music Fest was cancelled as the park where the concert was being held flooded.  Some evacuations were underway and one pregnant woman in Manchaca was rescued from her car, stranded in 3 feet of water.  A wastewater lift station overflowed and “spillage” (that’s what they called it) went into a nearby creek.

    Is there a reason why so many ladybugs are everywhere??

      Happens every fall, they look for warm crevices to hibernate.

        What you are seeing are not American Species of lady bugs, they are an invasive species, brought from asia, called Asian Lady Beetles{Harmonia axyridis} and they have no natural predators in North America and the other places on the globe where they’ve been intentionally & accidently imported, so they multiply in unnatural numbers then swarm in mass when the temps reach around 50° F.

          So partially because they are invasive and partially (mainly) because it is fall and they want to hibernate in a warm location. Thanks!
