My little neighborhood is quiet again.

This sure did not feel like a Sunday.

We had another band of rain after dark but it is over.

Our ditches did their job and the streets and yards are drained for the most part.

More rain is coming but we not right now
I am one thankful person right now.

My yard is clear of water and my house is safe.

The most I had was one foot in the yard.

My drainage system worked.

I put it in after Allison.

This was the first time it really tested like this.

I am here watching tv and eating a late supper.

What a few days.

Houston was built on a swamp and lies from the Allen Brothers.

From the beginning Houston was the bayou city.

I grew up playing by White Oak Bayou.

Kids were drawn to the bayou.

I was born in Houston.

Harvey will not kick our ass.

Houston had floods before.

There was a major flood in the 30's.

My neighborhood flooded then.

I really hate that trump is coming my city to make a show of himself.

Houston and Harris County went blue in the election.

Time for bed.

Everyone in harms way of Harvey take care.

1. Aloha Demtexan, thank you for sharing your world and all.

It's nice to hear your calm perspective. I think we'd be friends. Maybe one day.

Everyone in harm's way, take care indeed.
