Glad I got home from vacation when I did!

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!
