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.
