Happy to report my family, pets and I are safe. Our home is flood-free. So far, so good. We are truly grateful. Many thanks to everybody for your prayers and well wishes. Your kindness and caring are appreciated.

Houston Baby, I haven't seen it rain this much since TS Allison!

So glad to know you're safe Delilah and HB. The coverage on the news just looks so scary.

The news can really whip up the fear. When a hurricane is approaching my area, after a certain point (after I have all the info I need) I have to turn it off -
particularly the local coverage - because it starts to scare the bejesus outta me.

To give the media the benefit of the doubt, maybe they have to "write it large" for the people who are kind of lackadaisical and won't take the proper precautions unless you light a fire under 'em so to speak.

Thanks for checking in D and HB, so glad you are both okay! I just read there have been 1,500 to 2,000 incidents of high water rescues and Hobby and Bush airports are having big problems with standing water on runways. They are asking residents where ever they are to stay put not to take any chances because of fears about flooding, sink holes, etc. I'm trying to reach my friend in Spring she said last night she was going to try to get to San Antonio. Stay safe and keep us posted!

I know Delilah, it is bad. Glad to hear y'all are safe. My exact location is Jersey Village and unfortunately we had flooding during the Memorial Day floods and also the tax day floods. So far this time the bayou that runs thru JV is staying within its banks. I am so thankful for that. However as you know it is still raining.
I would also like to thank everyone. Your prayers and well wishes are much appreciated.
Keep them coming as it appears this will be going on for awhile.

I have many relatives in Houston. My best friend, her family and parents also live in Houston. Her mother posted on Facebook that they were ok. I haven't heard from my best friend, but I guess her mother was posting for everyone.

Dawn. I have a friend in Spring too. I saw her facebook post and she's ok also.

Its weird that I was just in Houston this past January and its now underwater.

I'm glad everybody is ok.
