Texas is currently experiencing Hurricane/Tropical Storm Harvey which hit the coast near Rockport and is now dumping a lot of rain elsewhere, including Houston. Our house and neighborhood have traditionally handled flooding fairly well, but Harvey is really dumping a lot of rain. At this point (Sunday afternoon), we’re in pretty good shape. Here are some pictures of what is going on.

Another look at the green space (with water) and the detention pond beyond.

The detention pond that slowly draings into storm sewers and is handling the overflow of water from our neighborhood.
My rainwater gauge. Sitting at 18″ of rain (from Friday afternoon) to 9:00 this morning. Up to 22″ by early afternoon.

  1. How are things looking on Tuesday? We’ve been watching the news with maps open on my computer to see which counties/neighbourhoods were evacuating; didn’t see any mention of yours, but there was an awful lot of water everywhere.
