It's been raining all night and all day here. Every street that leads out of my neighborhood is closed because of flooding. I think I may have to start gathering animals 2 by 2. Of course, the flooding by me is nothing compared to the flooding, damage and destruction in the Turks and Caicos, Bahamas, Cuba, Haiti, and Texas.
No, those pictures are not of a lake. That's a street. Or it was anyway.
I'm not sure if THIS LINK will work or not, but it's pictures of Texas in the aftermath of Ike. It's pretty bad. Pray for those who have lost their homes and loved ones.
