A few pictures of flooding in Houston #houstonflood

Here are a few pictures I took this morning in the Meyerland area of Houston while I was going nowhere.

This picture captures the particular chaos that happens when civilization falls apart after street flooding – drivers go the wrong way, jump curbs, park in the median, just park in the street, etc. I’ve seen it mostly at night but nobody was shy about it during the day this time.

This is my favorite picture of the day.  It’s eerie and beautiful.  I feel bad for the owner however and hope they made it home ok. Beautiful Disaster

The rain wasn’t a complete surprise and was promised to drench us all weekend, but aside from a morning storm, the 3 day weekend was beautiful.
