Even though Hurricane Alex didn’t exactly make landfall in Texas, the storm did manage to dump a lot of rain just as a hello and to make sure we didn’t feel left out. It took me almost 3 hours to get home after I left work yesterday. One hour was spent in traffic that went nowhere and the other hour was spent with me on the phone trying to map my way back to my freaking house. One of the few areas that didn’t flood.
My car didn’t stall out on me – thank goodness!- as I coasted my way through the murky water. The rain wasn’t letting up at all. I feared that I was going to be stranded. However, I managed to find higher ground and get home safely (yes!).
While I was trapped in my car, I did manage to take pictures but more than half didn’t come out worth a damn. It’s forecast to rain some more today and all I can say is thank goodness this is my weekend off. It’s been a rainy couple of weeks, folks. My grass is almost ten feet high and I haven’t really seen the sun in I don’t know how long. Happy Fourth of July!
