My Dad just called & asked if I wanted to bring my car over to their house and park it in the driveway there. Why would I want to do that? Because it’s raining 4″ an hour down in Galveston right now. Tropical Storm Fay is gathering up speed, churning things up just south of here. The rain right now is pretty light on the Northwest side of town (I’m about an hour and a half from Galveston) but I learned my lesson last summer.
Tropical Storm Allison was kind enough (ha!) to dump 23″ of rain in under 24 hours. My car was flooded. Not too bad – but it took over a month to have it repaired because everyone else was flooded too.
Fay is stationary right now. This is not a good thing. Storms feed off of the water – that’s where they get their speed and power from. This could become a hurricane before it’s all over. I just want it to hurry up and move on through!
