Re: Bad weather in Texas

ROFL Bonnie, that's because I figured you all were tired of hearing about  
our weather problems here in Texas.  By now everyone knows that we either  dont' 
get rain at all, or we get too much at one time.  Do appreciate  everyone 
caring....though.  And quite frankly, Bonnie, I had no idea at the  time that it 
was that bad.  We had no elec. for hours up to that point, and  then I was 
just so thrilled that there was a lull in the storms and the elec.  came back 
that I got online to have some connection with the world.   LOL  
I have to admit though, this was by far much worse than the supposed  
hurricane we had last year.  The winds were just horrible, and the rains  too.   My 
backyard got 8 inches, according to the rain guage,  and flooded again, like 
usual, we had to go out and net the fish and  turtles off the patio again and 
put them back into the ponds, and drain  things.  Have 3 inches of standing 
water in the back now, but it will  receed until the next round of storms to come 
on Thursday.  My street had  water up to the sidewalk, but nothing serious.  
Much of the Houston area was hit really bad.  I didn't have  to go out, thank 
goodness....so didn't....but got to see the endless  coverage after the elec. 
came back on.   I'm sure that Scottie and others  along the coast had it far 
worse.  They had to evacuate some of the places,  like Angleton, just south of 
me.  12 Tornados were reported in the Houston  area, a few touched down.  
High tides.  I'm sure everyone agrees, here  in the Houston area, that this was 
worse than the Hurricane as far as  weather.  Apparently it was tropical, 
remnants of Tropical storm  or Hurricane Norma crossed Mexico and entered the Gulf 
and came up and hit  us.   Northeast Houston got hit hard too with lots of 
flooding.   Bayous were all out of their banks.  Lots of clean up  today.  
Several people lost their lives.  
 Life on the Gulf Coast......
Pam, so happy you got two inches of rain from the storms, I think  most of 
the folks here in this area would have rather had 2 than the  10+.

I  got an e-mail from Noreen at 4:51 PM this afternoon and she didn't  mention
either flood or tornado problems.
