Remembering Better (Weather) Days...


Yesterday was just a mess! It has been raining pretty heavily since Sunday afternoon, and yesterday we had a terrible storm! It was coming down in buckets...at I-10 and the Beltway it was under about 20 feet of water. Hundreds of people (including me) were stranded at local gas stations because we couldn't get into our neighborhoods. I didn't get home safely until a little after midnight last night. I was lucky though, four people lost their lives yesterday just trying to get to safety. Please keep the families of these victims in your prayers.

This slideshow will give you a better idea of what it was like yesterday.

Today though it was absolutely beautiful outside! There is a common and true saying here in Houston, "If you don't like the weather...wait five minutes and it will change!" Therefore, I am not surprised in the least that there are more Thunder-Storms in the forecast for the next two days!

I wonder how the weather is where you are...

Hi M,

Nacogdoches is about 140 miles northeast of us here in Houston. It takes about 2.5 hours to get there. "Nac" is a small college town with several Stephen F. Austin students running around everywhere! Check out the map at the below link:
