Well yesterday was intense! Hubby and I woke up to 60 mph winds smacking our windows, it was about 12:00am. We quickly went downstairs with our dogs, and stayed away from the windows. We still decided to go to work, and we made it to Conroe safely, thankfully all our product was at the depot. Apparently we dodged a tornado, either while we were still at our house or while driving to our stores. Unsure of the time, we just found out from some Kroger employees that we were not smart driving through all this. Well as true as that statement is, our stores need bread, and thankfully God kept us safe. We did a lot of praying while driving.
When we came home this is what our backyard looked like. Since we have lived here, the water level has never been this high.
This morning we decided to drive around and look at the flood waters, since we didn’t have to work last night. (We didn’t work because our bakery was and is flooded, so no bread.) Oh my goodness I’m shocked to find out almost everywhere around has flooded this morning, and yet somehow our neighborhood has stayed dry. Benjamin looked on his phone and found out that we would need 11 feet of water (rain or creek rising) to start flooding our house. So praise God, we should be safe.
Here is a picture of a street becoming cypress creek, well an even bigger cypress creek. I had to take a picture of the sign for all of you.
This picture is of the gully behind our house, that we walk our dogs on. Clearly there will be no walking our dogs anytime soon.
I have been watching the news and can’t believe all this is happening around me. It’s just crazy. I’m just so very thankful that God has kept us safe.
P.S. These pictures were taken from my phone. Had I known we were going flood watching I would have brought my camera. Next time I will make hubby stop by the house, just to pick it up. But oh well. At least I got some pictures.
