Tornado Watch

Several days ago, Hesam’s entry described how wonderful the cool weather was, and I couldn’t agree more. It was nice to feel the coolness for a change. Otherwise, there’s no such thing as autumn or winter in Houston!

This weekend, however, is anything but the cool weather we just had those several days before. It was raining on and off all day yesterday, and it then rained over night. Go outside and look at all the floods on the roads and streets! I did that last night, and the water was above my ankles! Just minutes before though, reported that southeast Texas was under a tornado watch because of all the thunderstorms and rain we’ve been having. Stay safe and dry and be careful when driving, everyone! Very slippery out there!

    yeah, unfortunately, not everyone was able to make it home today… most people are planning to sleep in at work…

    how high was the water at your apartment?

    Well, I made it back to my apartment last night at midnight. THANKFULLY, nothing was damaged… but it was a very close call. There was a line of mud and dirt that was less than a foot away from my patio door.

    Hard to believe that there was such crazy flooding last night by the looks of the weather today… big blue skies and lots of sunshine.
