When It Rains
It hasn't been a good weather month in Texas. First, all the flooding in Houston and Wemberley near Austin a few weeks ago, now, Tropical Storm Bill hammering the southeast coast along much the lines of devastating Hurricane Carla fifty years ago. My extended family is safe, though some of the property is a little worse for the wear. Apparently the place where many have bayhouses was hit pretty hard--the houses are okay but the piers are gone and many of the boats came unmoored from their boat stalls as the tides rose and even floated around the harbor. But it's not nearly as bad as Carla, when all the houses in the town except one were wiped off the earth. They'll be able to recover, but it'll be a slow road in some places. Our thoughts are with the people all over the state (and in the other states as well) as they recover and rebuild.
