Day 4: Rain Continues

The sound of rain sent me to sleep, woke me up multiple times through the night and continues to fall as I step out of the front door to check the street. No rising waters. The drains are working. I’m so lucky. Blessed really. I’ve lost count of all the reasons why this home purchase has been such a blessing. But God continues to take care of me and my little family, especially when I just took a leap of faith and bought the place. After all it was close to work and I didn’t really have to get on the interstate. It was a win – now in more ways than one. Power is on. We are dry. We have enough provisions to manage.

Thank you, Lord. And thank you all for the prayers.

 

Isolated rainfall totals from Harvey could be up to 50 inches by later this week. That’s not good. Yesterday checking the Harris Count Flood Warning site the two water sheds that sit on either side of me were already overflowing. This morning the rain sensor is storm damaged, according to the site, and unable to provide status. Let’s just hope that there is enough land between those overflowing channels and this neighborhood to absorb that water.

Pictures of massive flooding around the City of Houston are flying around the web. But people are coming out in droves to help those in need. Its a testament to the goodness in this world when you watch strangers helping strangers. Its an anxious time. Yet the city is coming together.
