I suppose you’ve heard that parts of Houston (and the greater Houston area) flooded. The pics and video are spectacular (though no more jaw-dropping than pics of other flooded areas). We aren’t among those flooded out. Though the yard is sopping wet, nothing is under water. But the one really, truly, bright spot about all the rain are the rain lilies!
We had severe storms this weekend. Lost power for 4.5 hours Friday night and got 4 inches of rain. The backyard was buried in tree debris, including some large limbs. Nothing hit the house, but the storms and aftermath freaked out the dogs a bit. They weren’t too happy about what the storm did to their backyard. (Me, too.) Clearing out the debris and hauling it to the curb took a while; I’ve got sore muscles and allergies this morning. It’s finally stopped raining. I’ve got antihistamines, aspirin, and caffeine in my system, so I’m ready to tackle the day! 🙂
