Been up since 2AM sweeping water. Rain was getting on the SE corner of the house, still haven't figured it out. Flood water got to 1.5" from flooding us. Yard looked like Sam Rayburn in the Spring.

Lots of friends just got back in their homes from Harvey, now flooded again.

SETx needs yalls prayers.

Good luck. My experiences trying to get a one way rental car at the Austin airport are not positive, I'd start trying now.

Hamshire got over 43 inches in less than 20 hours. Iím 5 miles from there, and I saw it firsthand. Weíre very fortunate that when we built our house a few years ago we decided to build up the highest point of our property an extra 16 inches with the dirt from our pond instead of filling in low spots in the back. This is the second time that flood water has risen in the back of our property and not been able to quite make it up the slope into our house. Almost all of our neighbors are flooded again.
