Investigating Officer R. Gardner  Sunday storm drops .04 inches of rain in city  By Will Wright  The Herald-Zeitung  Rain came as a pleasant sur[)rise to New Braunfels Sunday afternoon, as a 20-minute fk)wnf)our flooded downtown streets and sent tubers sc urrying for shelter.  N€*w Braunfels Munici[)al Airport reportc'd only 0.04 inches of rain, the first noticeable precipitation since june 22, when 2.05 inches was recorded, said National Wc'ather Service metecjrologist C hris Morris.  Customers came out of downtown businesses to rc'vel in the rain. Tubers tem-porarily got out of the Comal River to escape the lightning that accompanic*d the brief storm.  There's little to no chance of Mother Nature staging an encore performance anytime soon, Morris said.  "There's only a slight c hance for isolated showers later tonight," he said. "Beyond that, there's not any chance of rain until late in the wcH‘kend."  Temperature-wise, Morris said it'll be the same old song and dance — with highs this wt^'k in the upfx?r ‘K)s to near 100, with lows in the mid- to upper 70s.  Conservation urged as Texans face soaring temperatures  With temper.Uures ex[)ec ted in the upper 90s and low 100s, officials with the Electric Reliability ( ounc il of Texas (ER(X )T) have issued an advisory for the entire week. ERCOT is expecting extre^mely high electric usage and this could c ritically affect the state's c'lectric reserves. NBU is rc'ciuesting that c ustomers be prc‘pared in the event that ERCOT orders emergency o[)era-tions to go into place. This could include the possibility of rolling outages in Nc*w Braunfels.  NBU is asking electric c ustomers to voluntarily curtail electric usage as much as possible for the next week, es[>ecially during the peak usage hours ot 2-8 p.m. Kec'[)ing air c onditioning units set at 78 degrees, delaying use of ap[)liances until late evening or c\irly morning, and unplugging will all hel[) avoid outages.
