It’s not news that it rains in Houston, but we’ve been pelted in the last few hours and more rain is expected. The freeway underpasses flood sometimes six or more feet (still not big news) but the rain usually lets up after a few days. I looked back on other rain posts, including Hurricane Ike, and I found a post two years ago talking about the more than 40 days of rain we had one summer. It isn’t that bad this time, but lots of people have water in their cars, in their homes. The problem is, it’s still raining, and the creeks usually don’t peak for a few days.
Please pray for the people stranded, flooded in their cars and homes, and the drivers on the road trying to make it to work. I will have to go out later to the medical center, and I’ll be watching the news carefully before I head out. I learned a long time ago (the hard way, by experience) not to drive through any standing water. Especially keep our blogging friend, Abba’s Girl Annette in your prayers. Her sunroom was flooded, and she was up at 4 a.m. dealing with the water.
So, y’all be careful out there, and try to stay dry.
