A heavy deluge of the wet stuff sure did look good last weekend, as the Rockdale area received over 11 inches of rain, making it one of the wettest months in the past 20 years. At left, Blake King, ballboy for the Tiger football team, sloshed through standing water on the Marlin track during halftime of the Tiger-Bulldog game. Above, "Lake RJH" was full again. It's actually a holding area to drain water slowly so nearby neighborhoods are not affected by runoff from the school property. At right, Larry Kocian recorded 8.99 inches of rain overnight Saturday and into Sunday morning at his residence at 132 Champions Drive. An identical gauge of his was set up at 715 Ackerman, where 6.69 inches were recorded. 002p1_xlg.jpg
