Setup for Runoff Rains?

The Weather Channel's ten day forecast shows six days with chances of rain between 40% and 80%.  The further out in time there's less certainty the prediction will hold, but I'm liking our chances.  I went to the North Pool at Twin Buttes for the first time this year.  I would both windsurf and paddleboard on the lake at these levels.  There are fairly safe sections of water (depth wise) for windsurfing.  The Equalization Channel is still flowing from the South Pool, so that is the safest place to windsurf in a South wind, especially for beginners.  I'm praying the prediction holds and our lakes take on water.  That would be a blessing. 

Update 5-10-15:  No luck yet on the runoff but the ground is now wet and a similar week is forecast.  Pray for rain!

Rain in Watershed

Storms moving through West Texas fit nicely over Twin Buttes watershed.  Pray for a substantial dousing.  Wishing all a blessed Easter.
