Greetings from the shores of Beautiful Lake Westmere

Westmere Dr., Houston, Texas, 77077    April 28, 2009, 7:45am

This is what we saw this morning when we went out the front door.

Nathan, of course, walked out in the middle of the street in the flood (not my ass---there might be SNAKES in there!).   He is 6"4 and the water was up to his knees.  Apparently the water got almost up to the house, but didn't get in (thank God).  Fortunately, I have Federal Flood Insurance....


This is how high it got; note the debris line.

My neighbors, who are kind enough to watch my dogs while I’m gone.


  1. So I guess it's been raining there. Did you really have that much rain or just so much in a short period that the storm sewer backed up?

  2. One foot (12 inches) at the elementary school down the street from my house, all in 24 hours. "Training" thunderstorms, storm after storm after storm that rakes the same area.
