The Rains Came Down

Like that old song that goes:  The Rains came down 

                                                                            and the Floods Came Up

                                                                                           The Rains Came down 

                                                                                                             and the Floods Came Up

But the House on the Rock stood Firm.

 

Ever hear this song?

Lots of truth in that.  This weekend in South Texas will be a test of this idea.  Flash floods and high water everywhere you look.  Hurricane Patricia, now downgraded to a tropical storm is the biggest culprit.  There is a low pressure system coming down from the North. however, that adds to the deluge.  When they met just north of Corpus Christi, the rains poured down.   Lots of rain, more than we need in a short period of time and the forecasters say Houston will get even more than us.

 

The Dallas area was hit last night and as far south as Corsicana experienced severe weather and even a train derailment when the tracks actually washed away.  Be careful on the roads.  Don't go out if you don't have to.  Stay home and write blogs like me!

A big pot of pinto beans and some cornbread, maybe a football game makes a day inside very nice.  Don't drive through high water.  "Turn around, don't drown."

Turn Around, Don't Drown, that is a very good saying.  We are getting some of the rain in Northern Indiana too.

Yes, we were watching the MI State football game earlier and saw how much it was raining there.  That's probably not too far from you.  Be careful!!

 Good Sunday morning Ricki. I think some of the rain that hit your area is headed in our direction. Be safe!
