Glad I got home from vacation when I did!

Saturday, May 01, 2010

Ok. I would love to have been able to stay on the coast longer, and yes, I need to blog and add some pics from our week in Galveston. It's a long drive back (around 12 hrs, with stops) and DH said if I got tired to stop and get a room. Boy, am I glad I didn't! There was weather around us, but we had clear sailing home, unpacked the car, and went to bed. Wild storms overnight - lots of lightning and rain. Woke up to a flooded yard. No surprise!

Early afternoon, decided to go to the grocery store. Oops - not going that way!

I know the next street down won't be much better...

and the main road out of our development...

If I really, really HAVE to get out for some reason, there is one way that I can take the truck, and 'probably' not flood it... but the water in the above pic is over waist deep! I was knee deep standing on the SIDEWALK when I took my camera out to get pics. If we had come home today instead of last night.... Somehow, thankfully, we still have power!

    The fun part was when we took down a kayak on Saturday afternoon and went touring the 'restricted access lake-front properties' of 'Lake Auburn' and 'Rice Lake'.

    Tough getting out of the house. This looks like it might be in Nashville? That was a screamer of a flood for that area. So the garden soul must have been a bit soggy too.l

    Wow - I hope it starts receeding soon. Good for you to get home before the flooding and thankful that you still have power.

    Hope today you can get out.

    Keep us posted.
