Nothing like the unconditional love you get from a dog. We have 4 that were rescued in some manner from bad situations. I'm still not sure who rescued who...Click image for larger version

Fortunately the rain is abating in Houston and moving east a bit:

. . . but the water level station on the Brazos River to the west still shows a record crest which is not expected until next Sunday or Monday!

The Spring Creek water level stations, linked in earlier posts, are returning toward more normal levels.

water water everywhere...

Been holed up in my temporary digs for a couple days on the NE corner of Houston, couldn't leave the neighborhood if I wanted to. As long as it doesn't rise any further it'll be aight...
Shades of Tropical Storm Allison, was here for that too...

And now it's hitting Louisiana.

Soooo much destruction, so many displaced persons and animals, it's hard to watch.

One can make a Red Cross donation using PayPal, if you like...

Oh my word! I didn't even know I was holding my breath literally until this morning. The storm has moved on but we really can't celebrate because we know what other people are gonna have to go through. For us it was a calm storm, no huge wind, no howling just the ever increasing water. No gonna lie, we did not have to worry about the safety of an Airstream YET, so that was one less worry for us. We have slowly started the conversation of no remaining in our beautiful neighborhood with trees so tall you have to lean all the way back to see the top of them and our great neighbors but we have decided that the worry is just too much these days. Our blessing is we can sell this house and say with a clear conscience that it has not flooding during our ownership. That means a lot to us. Please be kind to your Texas and now Louisiana members as they work through these times with dealing with their damages and emotions. I hope soon I can be one of the happy people announcing a purchase of the Airstream of my dreams.

Another charity that you can contribute to is the Southern Baptist Disaster Relief Agency.

Hi

I know how this sounds. I can't come up with a "nice" way to say it. I've lived in areas where this sort of thing happened. After the event, real estate prices take a dive. You will likely not get the price you might expect for your home. Plan accordingly. They don't stay down forever, so in some cases waiting is the best plan.

Bob

We stored our removed rear bed/dinette unit and cushions in a Public Storage in Katy TX.

Given the incredible impact on the whole area, we are not too worried about losing it. I'm sure it's a loss at this point.

We were going to head back through Texas on our way to FL in a month or two but will probably make other plans. Likely just swing through Katy on I10, remove our items to take to the trash and close out our storage unit.

Thoughts and prayers to all impacted in the area.

. . .
Have you confirmed the flooding at your unit with the management there -- maybe you lucked out?

Hoping so . . .

If you were flooded out, however, you might want to authorize them to break the lock, and throw everything out? In two months, the mold could get into the building itself, and you could be held liable for serious remediation costs IMO.

Thanks uncle bob, we have thought of that. Thankfully the season for the rains is kinda coming to a close, maybe. We have heard there is some kind of disturbance out there again so who know what is gonna happen in the near future. We are in an older neighborhood that many people want to be in so for that part we are optimistic but can't give it away either. We probably will get when the gitten' is good. Llando 88, I hope you did survive the devastation for your storage unit but so many places in Katy got hit pretty hard. We are now about to head out to help some friends that took on a 5 foot surge and it appears all is lost for them. They have the most positive outlook that it inspires me as well. Everyone stay safe and enjoy some camping for me, lol.

We were planning on setting up our Texas domicile in Livingston, TX in October. Maybe we should think about South Dakota instead. It might be hard to get into any campgrounds not to mention roads that still need repairing, fuel issues etc.

Just a warning, if your even travelling in North Texas. No fuel at gas stations in my local area in Fort Worth.
