9. Good luck with that. How much rain did you get this time?
It would be wonderful to just have 1/2" a day. Problem is that there is often too much rain at one time in Houston. I wish you well.

And from what I am told by my sister, deciduous trees that have dropped all their leaves may not be dead and may leaf out if you get enough rain in time. The loss of leaves is a survival mechanism. It is the trees who still have leaves on them but the leaves are dead that are goners. Don't rush to take them down if you can wait.
