    Rain Rain Go Away!

    We're taking a pounding here in Houston! Lucky we live in an old bungalow in an area near downtown called The Heights; our house has been safe from this, but the yard is swampy right now and the dogs are waiting for a lull to go out to do their business- and they don't want to stay out there, either! We do mental games. scentwork, and freestyle moves in the house to keep us all sane.

    Driving is treacherous, it seems people really don't get it that they shouldn't drive into any water here, chances are good their vehicles will float away- or will sink to the bottom and drown them. The only good thing about it is it's kept the temperatures down. Being as it's so flat, and we have had huge growth here resulting in losing trees and vegetation, more concrete, buildings, and traffic, the ground becomes saturated, and many areas find themselves flooding hours or even days later after the rain has stopped. One friend's home has flooded four times, another lost an outbuilding because a tree fell on it, our friends beautiful and well thought out elevated riding arena is standing in water, and this did not happen until it quit raining the last time. Many roads have washed out and more are in danger of doing so from these weeks of damage due to heavy flooding, bubbles coming up from the surface of the road.

    We have been lucky and have had pretty clear weather especially for Florida. My grand father in new Orleans on the other hand said he was getting blown away off his porch lol. But hopefully it clears up there soon.
