We ended up remaining dry for the entire storm, there was some concern Saturday night when the water in the street jumped the curb on our property. Thankfully the rain paused for a little while which allowed the street to drain out. That happened a few more times, but never got close.

There is significant flooding due to the Buffalo Bayou overflow on streets just a few blocks away.

Yesterday, we watched as the rescues in this area.

The airplane and helicopters stayed over our house for most of the day surveying the damage and orchestrating the rescues.
This sunset is from Tuesday night, first time the sun had shown since last Wed.
Driving rain on Monday night, just seemed it would not stop.

These last two are from Monday, when our street started to flood again for the third time since Saturday night.
This is the same intersection as picture #3, taken this morning at 9AM. Still water in it and appeared to have spread out.

Harvey made landfall near Corpus Christi, it certainly has been interesting to go through the lead up to a Hurricane.

While the eye of the storm is roughly two hundred miles to the southwest the outer reaches of the storm have hit here at home.

I started to write this on Friday night, but was too tired to finish.

Today is Sunday and it's been a rollercoaster ride, flash floods, tornado warnings and at one point yesterday I saw the sun.

 Pic # 2 Looking towards the intersection; I should note that at 9 PM last night the street was flooded all the way up and past the curbs entire street.

Bunch of co-workers taking an Astros game, before the storm hits.

Likely to be off work for a couple of days.

Hillary v Trump Part II

Well on Tuesday afternoon, I was looking at the Electoral Map and I figured Trump could take the swing states of Florida band Ohio, but I just couldn't believe Trump could  not flip Michigan and/or Pennsylvania.

But at 2:00AM my time it had happened.

Now the hard part comes, he will have to keep this coalition together for four years.

I figure that due to his age, he will only be a one term president.

Stay tuned!

Hillary v Trump

If you live in Lakewood Ohio, the question is probably moot; Its Hillary.

Down here in Texas its Trump, probably not has big as to change the electoral college, but she still loses.

I think when the votes are counted it will be Hillary and the democrats will have no more arguments about Republican Dynasty.

When you think about the leadership in this country since 1992, you have Clinton, Clinton, Bush Bush, Obama, Obama and now Clinton.

As we have seen, the Democrats have bought and paid for the White House - again.who win in this election are the illegal immigrants, everyone else will lose.

More to come.

If you haven't voted yet, please go do it in the morning.

It has been a an eventful year, this time last year I was packing for a move to Houston Texas to our new home.

While the reason for the move did not work out as well as we had planned, but still, we are grateful for the opportunity.

So to all my friends back in Ohio and other locales:

It's a little odd to be celebrating Christmas and having the temperatures near 80 and the prospect for snow non-existent. Although, I understand that Cleveland and Buffalo areas will be warm as well!

Here is to a Happy Christmas and Healthy New Year!

Sometimes When You Are in a Major City

I have been to Los Angeles several times and today was the first time I realized how close some things are to downtown LA.
