Hurricane Harvey
« on: August 30, 2017, 09:35:49 am »
SueSue are you still okay over there in Cypress.  I'm ashamed to say that I didn't think to check on you (and Cody for that matter) until after the storm blew through.  I've been checking on friends via Facebook and calling family daily.  Everyone is doing okay.  A few of my friends had to evacuate.  My family on the other hand managed to avoid having their homes flooded. 

Funny thing.  When I last went to visit my folks, we were talking about the city removing a live oak from in front of my parents house to put in a better drainage ditch.  The live oak was half-dead.  With all the rain water and wind, it's a good thing it was removed.  Otherwise it would have gotten tired of the rain and wind and laid down in their living room to rest. 

With Harvey having moved in on Louisiana, I hope Zombellayaya is doing okay.

Thanks y'all. Somehow we escaped unscathed. Water came down our street for the second time in 19 years. I thought for sure we would have water in the house when it came half way up the driveway and was still raining buckets.  Thankfully it stopped rising. The devastation is unreal. We are having difficulty getting around as streets are flooded all over.

I messaged with Cody the other day and they were OK at that point. 

I retired last September but had been doing contract work for them since Feb. That ended at the beginning of August. I believe that is why. I have the time to volunteer so am signing up with our local area groups to see where I can lend a hand.

Please keep SE Texas and Louisiana in your prayers.

North of I-10 along whatever Chimney Rock is called.  They didn't see any flood waters reach their house.  I have an Aunt that lives near the Brazos River, she went to my folks place for a couple of nights.  Her house wasn't affected by the flooding either.  A cousin lives somewhere in the Memorial area.  His house was also not affected.  A family friend's house though was under 3 feet of water.  They cannot go home for 2 more weeks. 

Thanks for asking SueSue.
