It is impossible to predict Dallas weather and I'd be the last person to
say I had any idea what the weather would be in March 2015.  March has some
of the most dramatic weather changes and differences - very much the lion
and the lamb.  However, I've lived in Dallas for 29 years and that was only
the 3rd time I had encountered a flash flood of that ilk.  However, I also
think that the Anatole is in one of the worse locations for flooding (right
next to the Trinity River).

That all said, Dallas has not done anything to prevent this sort of
flooding (with 2006 being the most severe recent flooding).   There is a
bond proposal to do so:
http://www.wfaa.com/news/local/Dallas-considers-bond-package-136675208.html
I guess it's a remote possibility something will be done before the meeting
in 2015.  This article references the 2006 flood.  As it does seem it might
just be time for a severe flood if we don't have one by then ;)

Mary.
