    The sky opened up in Galveston County Texas last night

    And the bed of my F150 had water in it this morning. I turned the truck with the front towards the street so the water will drain out under the tail gate.

    It is clear and sunny today though and a refreshing day to be alive.

    BIL said they got 6.0 inches in Baton Rouge night before last. We're expecting 4+ inches over the next few days. Last week, we had over an inch, which was the first rain in two weeks of 90+ weather.

    Today is a bright clear day. The water is almost gone.

    Palacios which is west of Galveston got 7” of rain Wednesday. I was down there volunteering to help turn the old “Palacios Colored School” into a community center. I felt awful as I drove out of town that evening knowing many people were worse off than when our group of 80 arrived three days earlier.

    Northeast corner of our county, and areas of the adjoining county got 8" of rain in less than two hours Saturday. Several roads are washed out

    Great, now I have this image in my head:

    "Design"? Possibly. "Intelligent"? Sure doesn't look like it from this angle.

    That is a clever picture.

    I just had a pint or so of water. I have a retractable bed cover and a bit got in.
