Continuing my prayers for you all. That's some really nasty stuff on radar.  Sad

Lol SB

It's getting really bad here.  Parking lot flooded but would have to wade to car any way. Rain paused briefly but kicked up with a vengeance.  Scared shitless right now.

I've been listening to the Houston police/fire scanners, along with a Houston radio station. Lots of high water rescues. And on top of that, numerous tornado warnings!
Just saw a graphic on a weather site - some places are getting rain at a rate of 6.5 inches (16.5 cm) an hour!

From a tweet by the National Weather Service (NWS):
"This event is unprecedented & all impacts are unknown & beyond anything experienced."

I don't know if anywhere in the continental United States has there been such widespread areas of 20 plus inches of rain. There is now the forecast that some areas can get as much as 60 inches of rain (over 152 cm). Maybe Hawaii has gotten rainfall like that,

Bless Billy and his family

So far we're ok. It's bad as hell here.  Supposed to be like this for rest of week.  We have a little break in rain right now. Seems like my street in a 2 mile radius was spared the worst so far. Unknown how long that will last.

911 is "at capacity ". Well sh*t. Stroke didn't kill me earlier this month, not going to let some water finish the job
