ok so earlier in the week I posted about rainy days and how I loved them…of course that’s BEFORE we got a bazillion inches of rain, tornadoes and massive flooding. :oops:
Seriously, what started out as a nice rain shower turned into a mammoth rain event. Last year it was Hurricane Rita, this year huge floods. Lovely. One family I know of JUST got their house repaired from all the Rita damage. Well, then a tornado ripped through and demolished their house. Think they’re wondering who the hell they pissed off?
Southeast Texas looks like a friggin’ lake. There are neighborhoods under TWENTY feet of water. I kid you not. Village creek which had been very dry prior to this week’s rain, we’re talking maybe 6 inches deep in parts. Uhm it’s overflowed its banks and spilled WAY over into connecting areas. They’ve been getting people out of their houses in boats. I feel like I’m on an island because my town is actually one of the highest points in our area. But the neighboring communities? A complete clusterfuck.
So I think I’ll take back all I said about lovely rainy days. Several counties here are being declared disaster areas. Gee, like we didn’t get enough of that LAST year for the hurricane. :cursesign:
