Spring Weather Strikes Close to Home

| May 16, 2013

Hail the size of softballs? You better believe it. Yesterday finally brought a Texas style spring outbreak of weather, and it included all the death and mayhem Texas is famous for in a typical spring.

Much of the weather was spread out across North Texas – from Granbury to Bowie, with concentrations of damage and violent weather as bad as anything I’ve ever seen, or driven through. The weather outbreak wasn’t too much of a surprise with the level of humidity that has been around for a couple of days, but the actual strength seems to caught everyone off guard. Now we just have to see what this does for lake levels and fish activity.

Now as the sun rises above the calm distant cloud bank, we will watch the news crews stand next to each other in front of the worst scene they can find, and talk about luck – good and bad. Maybe you are near the devastation, and are one of the lucky ones? I know my luck was good yesterday, driving past Sunset and Bowie last night through driving rain and wind. Luck is one of those things that blows past fishing sometimes, and leaves hard evidence in her wake.

    Six dead south of DFW. Extensive damage in several places, including Lake Amon G. Carter where I was fly fishing a few days ago. It was quite a site the other night – from a safe distance!
