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.
