We're okay in Houston. Neighbors are not as okay.

Thank you to all who have asked about us. We are good here  - the bark was definitely worse than the bite in our neighborhood.



Two of our three routes to town are flooded, road closed.  I didn't check the final route, but my partner in crime managed to make it to work so I guess that way must be open.

Flooding on Turtle Creek

Flooding near Houston, Texas


The golf course:

Quail Valley Golf Course

Out to repair Quail Valley Golf Course

There was one tree down, but the golfers seemed happy about that.  It turns out to have been blocking a hole:


Last but not least, we saw a lot of turtles wandering around, checking out the flood conditions I suppose.


So, that wasn't at all wordless and it wasn't even Wednesday but...you know...flood.

It's never good when you have to use a boat to get to your car. Be very, very careful around a snapping turtle. They are almost never in a good mood and they will bite. Praying for all of the people in Houston.

I can't get over the devastation that I have seen on the news. It is hard to believe that California is having the opposite problem at the same time

Michelle said...

Ugh, I am so sorry. Hope you & everyone down there stay safe!!!
