As the skies turned a hue we haven't seen here for some time, folks started well, freaking out.
"Look everybody it's raining," joked Marquez resident Casey Brown.
"I almost forgot what it looked like," joked College Station resident John Litton.
Mother nature opened the gates releasing lots and lots of wonderful wet stuff.
"We sure have been needing this rain," said Brown.
"It's pretty nice, I actually like it when it rains. We can just hang out and chill at the house," said Blinn student Meshack Balderas.
"I love it! It's great! I hope it keeps going today and all day tomorrow," said Litton.
The rain was so intense in Bryan/College Station that in a matter of 10 to 15 minutes, we got over half an inch of rain.
"I'm late because of it. I didn't even want to come out in it," said Gwen Shepard.
"I think it's very random, I didn't expect this," said Blinn student Justin Scott.
Sleet also wasn't expected and came down in blankets in some parts of town.
"I saw a bunch of hail! I had to go roll up my windows, it was getting pretty bad," said Balderas.
"Yeah, I thought it was my dog and then I found out it was hail," joked Scott.
But the best news is all that rain is helping fill up tanks, ponds, and more important places.
"My favorite fishing lake is still about 3 feet down but this rain is going to help," said Bedias resident James Williams.
And we'll take it. Hook, line, and sinker.
