Boxer dog playtime

Our two boxers love water.

Daisy loves her plastic pool and Zoee is obsessed with the water hose.

Tuesday we had close to 6″ of rain in a few hours.

It was raining so fast and hard it could not drain off fast enough so our backyard looked like this.

I decided to let the dogs out to see what they would do and these pictures pretty much tell the story. I wish I knew what they were thinking.

Houston we have a sunrise

We had over 30″ of rain over the course of a few days from Harvey.

It never even came close to coming in our house. When we built many years ago my father n law told us to put a 2-foot slab and we did and built the land up. Everything drained really well around here.

Some roads in our area were not passable. The stores are closed but some are supposed to reopen today.

My mom’s house took on water from it falling too fast first time ever for this to happen. My sister’s house took on water from a nearby creek causing everyone issues.

Our daughter’s house got water in the mud room. detached garage, carport, and apartment. Not in the actual house. All the animals are doing okay just a little stressed from being cooped up when they are used to roaming. The water is going down it just takes a long time when this much has fallen. We figure they got about 36″.

Things are materialistic and can be replaced. Human Life is the most important thing and our family is blessed everyone is safe and okay.

Houston we have a sunrise. Normally we take our sunrises for granted but when you have not seen once since last Friday morning it is the most beautiful thing you have ever seen.

Thank you for your thoughts and prayers.
