    Thank you for asking, we are fine. I am not sure how much rain we got as our rain gauge only goes up to 5" and it was overflowing! We got a bunch more this morning and it's sprinkling now. The tough part was getting the dogs out to pee! Neither one of them like getting their feet wet at the best of times so it was a bit of a battle. We are north of FM 1960 close to Cypress Creek and that is very high but it has never flooded here so we should be OK. Talking of flood insurance, even though we are outside of the flood plain (just) we have it as you just never know in Houston and I think for $430 a year it is worth it for the peace of mind. Stay safe everyone!

    Good to hear back from you! And glad all is well. Yes, I am an insurance agent, so needless to say my phone has been nonstop with people all the sudden deciding they want flood insurance, lol -- after they claimed they didn't need it when I offered it initially. I'm in Katy - its been bad, but not flooded like most other parts of Houston - thank goodness. I have alot of clients under water though. Just stinks. Glad the babies are well. I know what you mean about the potty issues! We gotta bribe with treats, haha. Stay safe!

    My whole heart, Tyson.

    Photo of one of Houston's freeways after the flooding this week - is it just me or does this photo look like a scene from the Walking Dead? LOL

    This rain while bad isn't the worst that I have seen. Tropical Storm Allison was much worse let alone when a Cat 3, 4 or 5 hurricane hits.

    I'm actually originally from Virginia Beach so I def have experience with hurricanes too and know how bad that can get! We just lived in Phoenix the last few years and you really get spoiled there with it only raining once every few months!! I've gotta get myself used to all the rain and humidity again!

    Then you know what I am talking about... As for the humidity... I don't think you ever get used to it. I have lived here for almost 40 years and still can't stand it. lol
