The very end of it is the funniest part, though:

ALL PERSONS WITH INTERESTS ALONG THE RIVER SHOULD MONITOR THE LATEST FORECASTS... AND BE PREPARED TO TAKE NECESSARY PRECAUTIONS TO PROTECT LIFE AND PROPERTY. DO NOT DRIVE CARS THROUGH FLOODED AREAS. IF YOU SEE FLOOD WATERS... REMEMBER TO TURN AROUND AND DO NOT DROWN.

Remember to turn around and do not drown. Good advice, weather.com.

They actually have signs here with that "turn around, don't drown" at the low water crossings. Because inevitably, when it rains and starts flooding, some idiot will drive in, get stuck, and if they're lucky, get rescued by helicopter.

I've never seen one of those signs. This doesn't surprise me in the slightest, though.

That's because people in south Texas are stupified by rain. It's like they don't understand what all that water together does or something. ;)

LOL weather.com sure is funny... it was like the time, I took a screen shot of the temperature of weatherEye, in the dead of winter, it said it was 30, when it supposed to say -30. LOL!

Now that's quite a difference. Anyone who believes that would be in for a shock.

That's good advice!

I WILL NOT DROWN, just because you told me so, weather.com. Before, I was thinking maybe, but now...
