the Highland Lakes and water storage...The rains need to fall much further
up the watershed.  Yes the river below Austin is a sad thing to see, but
last I hear Lk O. V. Ivie was dry or darn near so though I have not checked
lately.  Too many people and getting worse....They will vanish when/if no
water is available.
