What happens after it rains in Texas

I live in Austin, TX. There have been some really bad floods in the state, and although Austin has been hit with flood warnings (and floods), it hasn't nearly been as bad as the Gulf right now. But we've still been getting a lot of rain, and it has some advantages, as seen here.
  1. I'm sending good thoughts to those who have been affected by the floods in the state. But wow, there is so much green in Austin right now. I'm overwhelmed.
