    Yes I'm good.
    Wet but good.

    It's going to be non stop rain for days. I had no idea this was coming so I hadn't stocked up on toilet paper yet. Hopefully tomorrow morning I can make it to the store to get some. :fl

    I was surprised too, that whole system reminds me to Harvey. That was a mess…

    Imelda pretty much blew up out of nowhere, no warning. It wasn't there, and then 3 hours later it was smacking Houston. I have family in Clute and grandchildren in Sugarland. Stay safe, everybody!

    According to this I've only gotten 5+ inches at in my area.
    My baby pool was empty this morning...it is full now.

    Just received an automated call from the school district...we are on standby for school tomorrow.
    Not closed yet but that will probably change by morning.
    Our streets are already about to be in trouble and this just started.
    I am kicking myself now for not going shopping today.

    It was trying to rain while we were putting up the ducks. Double rainbow. We could use 5 or 6 inches of rain. It has been a dry summer. They are saying we may get two inches by Friday.
