That’s what the radar looked like yesterday at around 1:30 p.m. when we were seeing some of the heaviest rain here in Houston. That blue dot is where we live in southwest Houston.
Our neighborhood was extremely lucky and we didn’t get any major flooding. But it’s a mess down here in Houston today.
Tracie is actually away at a convention this week and I’m home alone with the girls. We are all fine and so is everyone from our school.
The Levys here in Houston (my cousins) and Tracie’s parents and her sister’s family are fine as well.
Some of the worst flooding and damage happened between Houston and Orange, Texas (on the Louisiana border where Tracie’s family lives).
Interstate 10 connects Houston and Orange: it’s closed today on the east side of Houston because of barges, possibly carrying dangerous chemicals, that have been lodged underneath a bridge that spans one of Houston’s major rivers.
The good news is we are all fine and our neighborhood is relatively clear today. School is closed and we’ll stay close to home and the girls are getting a “TV” morning while I work (they are super stoked about that).
Please stay safe and thanks to everyone from who checked in to make sure we were okay. It really means a lot to me.
