That's a crazy amount of rain, we received 15 to 20 maybe more last year and it flooded everywhere and we weren't too far from the flood waters. Unfortunately those weak (wind wise) storms don't grab the headlines but they can do more damage than the the "big ones".

Checking in. I did fine. A little cabin fever, because it rained almost non stop Tuesday-Thursday, but the street never even held water.

The bulk of Houston's issues were street flooding, and idiots who think they are driving snorkeled high water vehicles when they stall their Honda Civics in high water.

Looks like some subdivisions in Kingwood way northeast, took some water into homes, but the bulk of the damage was in the very rural Winnie area, east of Houston.

Edit: Two deaths reported, one guy who was witnessed stopping his car, then driving full speed ahead into and underpass with 8 feet of water in it. Suicide?

The other death was pretty awful....a 19 year old guy trying to rescue his horse from flood waters got electrocuted by a downed power line that he probably didn't see. No word on the horse.

We were spared in my town, heavy rain but not crazy.

Several of us got trapped at the office on thursday from about 10am til about 4pm when it started to recede. Never in danger, just couldn't leave. We have been in a drought for a good while so it ran off pretty fast when the rain did finally stop. Don't buy a cheap McLaren any time soon. The dealer on the I-45n has a lot full of wet ones.

We were all good, except my sons day care closed at 11 on Thursday in the middle of a downpour and they stayed closed Friday. But other than that high and dry and no problems.
