I picked up a second 2" pump from my father in law to help the fight against the back ditch backing up

Is the back ditch the one that goes into the overflow pond you mentioned? Will do hat pond fill up and start backing up or does it drain quick enough to keep up?

We've been blessed and dodged the rain all day. Looks like a pretty good band is on its way. I'm sitting on the porch with the rain suit and water boots on

Took all my gear off and got dry. Then another rain band formed. Planning my sleep around the rain bands and it's not looking good. I really need some sleep.

Wind is minimal in Tomball but this rain has been steady tonight. Just walked in from checking here, were looking good so far. Don't think this first round will get many folks here but if it's like this for days we shall see

I woke up yesterday at 5:30 and haven't been to sleep yet. This Harvey has gotten the best of me. I'm waiting for my wife to wake up and then I'm gonna have her watch the ditch and tell me when to wake up and start the pump

Sorry for the lag guys. I was up for 48hours straight. I stayed up they the night unclogging pumps and running pumps. I am drained in ever form. I have some friends coming over to help out. It's not looking good guys. Please keep my family in your prayers. Any light rain has ditches back to full.

Default Follow me thru Harvey

Ok guys. Last night was the toughest night of my life. I underestimated this thing and was up all night alone manning pumps. It was horrible. I had my brother, friend, and cousin come relieve me so I could get some sleep. I slept from about 12:30 and woke up at 4. So I got about 3 hrs of sleep. I feel as refreshed as I can and my cousin is staying to help fight it. I took these pics before I went to bed.
