Another Harvey Update

Poured one more inch of water out of the rain gauges, so 16 inches so far.  At the minimum.  As I said, the rain gauge overflowed last night.  Maybe tonight will be better.  We're currently in a lull in the rain, and the water is rapidly draining off.  The minor street flooding nearby has cleared up, and my house is still and in no danger.  I feel truly sorry for Houston and some of the surrounding towns, Dickinson in particular.  The National Weather Service said this was "an unprecedented catastrophe."  That says it all.

Our nation turns its lonely eyes to you. Keep your powder dry.

Absolutely. We're watching on CNN and the pictures are incredible. Some of the water shots from Richmond and Dickinson look very like New Orleans after Katrina.
