Stormy Weather...


We've had some stormy weather, here in Texas.

Brought to us by a guy named Harvey.


We had some wind...
and 18 inches of rain!

But, it was slow...over two days...so no flooding here.


A lot of it soaked into our SO-DRY soil.
But, enough ran off to make the creek flow again.
That's a lot of water.


Our daughter lives a little over 100 miles southeast of us.

They were inside the center circulation, for three days.
LOTS of wind.  They lost a few trees.
And, over 30 inches of rain!


The trash can saved the fence.


But, miraculously, they had no damage to their 100+ year old house.

And, there was beauty, under the debris.


They've gathered up supplies, and have a pallet of water, to take to those less fortunate.


The jeep looked worse than this...
with MOSQUITOES...
before they got back from the first trip over to Corpus Christi.  

Horrible monsters, making things even more miserable.



We've greened up here.  Amazing how fast we've gone from dead,
to back to life again.

There are people whose lives will never be the same again.
Towns all along the Texas Coast, almost wiped away.
Towns who don't make the news.

But, Texans are tough...
and, stubborn.
They don't give up easily.



Another monster is bearing down on America.
Let's all pray for the people in it's path...
and hope it doesn't make it all the way.

Stay safe....



Happy Gardening...
