The recent rains have been much needed for Central Texas.
But cities like Salado have been on guard after living through major flooding a couple years ago.
The city has taken steps to make sure their community doesn't flood again.
Doing this has allowed residents and business owners to take a sigh of relief any time it rains.
"The two bridges in Mill Creek they flooded and I know that a lot of people they had a lot of flooding in their homes and stuff and it was really tragic for a lot of families," Bridgett Gloria who lives in Salado.
For many people that live in Salado the 2010 flood was a nightmare.
"Actually where we're at right now, the Sugar Shack, it was actually an art gallery a couple years ago whenever it flooded and it was totally destroyed," said Gloria
But with the city stepping in, local business owners aren't afraid of flooding like that happening again.
"I never really am concerned about it flooding," said Salado Mercantile owner Teresa Zinke
Teresa Zinke has owned a shop right off the river in downtown Salado for the past year and a half.
"If the good Lord's willing and the creek don't rise, we'll be here," said Zinke.
After talking to other local business owners, and learning about how the creek's been cleared out, Teresa felt like a spot near the river, was just fine.
"The last flood was in 2010 and that was a 500 year flood. The ground is so dry and the rains that we got are very slow and so it's wonderful because it's all kind of seeped into the ground," said Zinke.
And with Central Texas going through the long drought that we have...
"We haven't had a lot of rain in a really long time and then all of a sudden it just rains, and rains, and rains, for days," said Gloria.
These Salado ladies said, the rain is welcome.
"I'm saying bring it on, it's slow for business but it's great for the vegetables
The rain didn't cause much flooding in Salado, but it did cause quite a few potholes to form.
I-35 was shut down a couple times through out the day on Wednesday wile crews repaired them.
