Today was Judy's day for her weekly check-up at MD Anderson. She got a good report.
It rained heavily as we drove in on Highway 288, and apparently it continued raining the entire time we were in the cancer center. When we got out, I figured that the street in front (Holcombe) would be flooded where it meets the highway, and it was. Luckily I turned off before it was too late. I found a nice high street and went back to 288. When I looked down, I saw nothing but cars. The highway was flooded, too. We turned on the traffic channel on the radio to confirm out suspicions. It was worse than we thought. The highway was flooded and closed in both directions.
After wending my way around, and driving for about three blocks the wrong way down a one-way street, I located a Luby's Cafeteria, and we had lunch. When we finished, it was still raining, and the highway was still closed. More wending around. Finally I got to IH45, and we made our way home in a total downpour, driving along bumper-to-bumper at about 30 mph.
In Alvin it's rained only about 2-1/2 inches. Not much at all compared to what must have fallen in Houston. I hate driving in rain, and I feel as if I've plowed the back forty. Without a mule.
