I had to laugh this morning . . we used to joke about people who got all their news from Facebook or the late night entertainment shows but this morning, I was getting my news from my blog readers. Since we don’t have TV, I don’t pay a whole lot of attention to the news. It isn’t like I don’t have a clue what’s going on . . maybe . . I do look at some online news but I really am not obsessed with the news like I once was.
I knew there was a tropical storm headed our way but when I woke up to about 10 emails from blog readers, I figured I’d better pay a bit more attention to what the storm is doing. Texas Storm Chasers is where I get most of my weather news.
If you look at the projected path and compare that to where we are, you’ll see that the path of the storm is staying to our east but we are expecting a lot of rain. The lake is barely 1 foot down now so our area is in danger of flooding. If we get a lot of rain, there are areas around here that flood and once the run off gets to the lake, it could cause some flooding too.
Pretty weird to have no water for so long and then be concerned about flooding.
As far as us personally, I don’t think our house/land will ever flood. Vince can get to work without experiencing any flooding. There are no streams or rivers near our house that will cause us any issues. Other than work, there’s no where we need to go. Super soaked ground and a little wind could bring down power lines but we’ll be fine so . . don’t worry about us no matter what you hear on the news (unless there’s a big tornado!). Just remember that without power, I can’t do blog posts.
