    After I had identified a few, I saw and recognized the shade of him who made, through cowardice, the great refusal.

    I saw things here over the last two weeks I never have before. Kinda scary. Ok, it was really scary. But I think it will start to happen more as the development in and around Houston continues. Maybe even a bad rain. We've had some heavy floods the last couple of years. Yes this was supposed to be a "once in a lifetime event". But what people don't think about is the weather down here isn't changing. But the city has and continues to do so. You cannot have this much concrete this close to the water and not expect problems.

    Pretty amazing. I did come across this earlier. It is not surprising considering the immense amount water that accumulated. Those monitoring the stations should be able to separate actual crustal subsidence vs soil compaction.

    I hope everything is OK you with you and your family. Flooding in the area is not new. Unfortunately, an increasing population and subsequent development throughout the city has just kept increasing every year. You are 100% correct about the concrete. Paving over natural drainage pathways (ie Buffalo Bayou etc) is not a great idea. With so much concrete water just can't drain at all, not that it would have drained well with 50" of rain. Forget "fighting/stopping" climate change, you really need to see better land use and city planning.

    Haha..they'd probably tell you they they do and point out Discovery Green.

    We did ok. I was nestled in a spot that got a ton of rain but there is limited development due to a lot of parks and things that are not going away which limits any future development too. People down the road were not so lucky though and I do feel bad for them. I still don't know why Dickinson got picked on so bad though. Man, them and Baytown got a ton of rain!
