What a crazy start to the weekend!

Post by blbabe1234 »

So I thought this Friday was going to be a pretty normal Friday. Got up with the alarm, fed the pups as usual. Started a load of towels and cleaned bathrooms. Sent out some work related emails and got ready to take Bear to the vet for her therapy session at 11:30. Thank goodness her appt was at 11:30 and we were home by noon! A thunderstorm rolled in causing 50 mph winds, hundreds of lightening strikes. Thunder was loud. And the rain. On top of the almost 10 inches Corpus Christi and the surrounding communities have had in less than 2 weeks, we got another 2 inches. My house got 1.25 inches. More flooding in flood-prone areas (we are lucky - we would have to have 2 feet of rain for us to flood).

A tornado was confirmed at our airport, which I'm about 8 miles NW of.

Mr Jeffrey was looking out. He was so brave:

It got bad by 1pm, so I put down all of our storm shutters on all windows. It was gone by 3pm.

But with all the rain we have gotten, where is the water going to go? Apparently towards the car port. Luckily DH put down some sand bags:

But don't worry! DH, the puppies and I are all safe and sound! No damage either.

WOW!! That's a lot of rain. I'm happy to hear you are all safe. It appears that storm is heading this way and DH might hit it on his way home on Sunday. I am a bit nervous.

We're supposed to have rain all weekend, too. Glad to hear you're all ok, Brandy! Sounds like a perfect scrap weekend.

Glad you are safe, Brandy.  We had more rain/thunderstorms during the night.  And, of course, we supposed to have more tomorrow and possibility of severe weather/tornadoes again.  Image  I'm so sick of May.  We don't have the flooding in the yard like you do, but all the rain is effecting my sewer some - UGH.  Stay safe & alert.

Glad you were back home before it hit! We've been getting it too, but thankfully live on a bit of a hill. The ground is soggy all around, though....

I don't understand why some areas get so much rain while others suffer from drought.

Crazy weather!  All the rain headed north to Montana!  Rained all day yesterday.  But, thankfully, not the crazy storms!
