Welcome to Stormageddon.

Because I’ve received so many emails and inquiries from Howdygram readers today I’ve decided to write a weather-related post due to the intense Stormageddon that’s going on around here. For starters, our freakishly wet weekend began last night around 10 p.m., pummeling us with noisy and powerful thunderstorms all night long as well as all day today. So far we’ve had almost five inches of rain at Howdygram headquarters in Mesquite ... and we’re just getting started! Here’s a screen shot of the rainfall totals from WFAA-TV here in Dallas as of 5 p.m. Friday afternoon. (FYI, “Dallas Love” refers to Love Field Airport.)
Our current weather map appears below for your possible interest. The red star denotes Howdygram headquarters.
And here are four storm photos from the Dallas Morning News website. I will never EVER understand why these morons would drive into FLOODED INTERSECTIONS! Holy crap.
Tonight around midnight we’ll start receiving rain squalls from Hurricane Patricia — currently a category five storm — off the coast of Mexico. This is going to get ugly so please stay tuned for additional information. Thank you.
