I can see the bayou creeping out of it's banks from the back window. This could be bad for those without the park buffer.

Total mess driving home today. In the pouring rain, some fool was going 70 mph on 59 and lost control...it was a miracle he didn't cause a 6 car pile up. Then closer to home, someone tried to drive through a flooded intersection and stalled out. A second car followed him and was stuck, too. So the intersection was closed while the police were dealing with that, and no one could get home who lived past that intersection because there isn't another route in. Fun times.

White Oak is creeping up...heard Frank on KPRC talk about the potential for another disturbance next week. Could this be our next Allison?

Saw parts of that on the news.Yuck. Our building sent out an email they were shutting down all A/C and power to make everyone go home, way before rush hour.
