Residents of Meyerland who had just moved back into their renovated homes were flooded again. My heart goes out to them, faced with trauma after trauma.
I'm fortunate to have sold my house, and I watched this storm from my fourth floor apartment. My car was flooded and I now have a rental with roll-up windows and 4 doors which have to be locked separately. But I'm lucky to have a rental. By Tuesday afternoon, the day after the flood, they were hard to come by. Who knows how long it will take the adjuster to check my car? I'm probably 100th in line.
Not likely. It's a gray. gloomy day. Rain has been coming down all afternoon, and the clouds look heavy with moisture. Thunder has begun to rumble.
Here's a quote from an article by Cort MacMurray in today's Houston Chronicle:
"It's not easy being a Houstonian. Here we sit, soaked in our soggy bayou homeland, scraping the contents of the neighbors' float-away trash cans from our front lawns and wondering if there's an automotive potpourri strong enough to mask Flooded Car Smell, thinking the thoughts that only Houstonians can think. The rain isn't over."
Keep us in your prayers, you dry people in other parts of the country. We need all the help we can get.
