    I was watching an episode of Man v. Food last weekend and Adam Richman was in Niagara Falls. A scene showed the falls and I think the amount of water was 750,000 gallons U.S per second. That is a lot of water.

    Nonetheless, I am glad you (Houstonians who have posted) are safe and I hope the rest are all OK as well.

    This is the first time I can recall that Houston received this much water...Now I remember Hurricane Carla (I'm dating myself a bit) dumped some water and Galveston was a mess but not this much water.

    Houston can flood (and does) at the drop of a hat unfortunately. It floods in different parts of the city depending on where the storm hits so it could be flooding in the southwest part of town and be dry as a bone in the north! This time it was pretty widespread with the NW getting really slammed.

    I am alive. Just been laying low with all that has transpired the last several weeks. We had a bit of water in our garage and it almost came in from the backyard, but i opened the gate in time to let it drain before it could do any real damage. I am not far from one of the reservoirs that is currently still rising and will be causing more flooding over the next several days so that will be interesting to see how that all plays out.
    Bulldogs are like potato chips. You just can't stop with one.

    So glad to hear from you Todd. Also, good to hear the you are mostly unscathed from all the rain. Horrendous scenes in the nightly news channels. As I mentioned in an earlier posting, I can't remember Houston receiving that much water and all the flooding.

    My neighbor (ATF guy and one of your fellow Aggies) was at his mom's house Northeast Houston and he said he could not fly out of Houston on last Monday because the runways were under water. He didn't fly out until Thursday to get back to Maryland. His mom's house had some damage from flooding.

    Again, glad to hear from you.
