Flood Day

Rarely do we get to miss school and work due to snow or ice...but about once or twice a year we experience Flood Day. Today is one of those days.

We are doing fine here at home. It looks like we received between 4 and 6 inches of rain overnight. It is soggy out, but that is about it. Will didn't get to 'enjoy' flood day. He is at school taking TAKS test today. I know he is sad about that!

We can't get in to work today. The Bear Creek area, where our office is located, is undergoing some evacuations in the neighborhoods. The electricity seems to be out at the office, so we have closed the office, forwarded the phones and sent the guys home for the day.

We spoke with the married girls...both families are okay. Kelli said that Matt had to stay late this morning until more officers could make it to the station. The Alief area was hit with lots of water, but not in their area. Meagan and Davin are tucked in at home and she says their area is fine as well. Derrick went out to look at a job...so, I hope he isn't stuck somewhere this morning.

The rain has stopped for now...but there is a possibility that more rain bands will form later this morning or early afternoon.

I hope that you are all safe and dry today.

I just got back from the house in Rosenberg, no flodding there either. Yipee! The guys were even out there working on some of the houses.

I'm glad you didn't get flooded in.

BTW, I love the new blogwear!
