I don't live in Houston, but work over on the south east side. 59 south is my route to the house. Yes, between the road construction, and the rain, 59 has been terrible in the afternoons. I've never seen the Brazos almost to the bottom of the bridge. Noticed yesterday, that the subdivision next to 59, that was the earthen dike wall, that protects it from flooding, had water starting to creep up its edge.
It should be real fun this evening on the ride out. More rain coming. I had a fun drive into work this morning, with a great lightshow.
