Flooding in Houston ...

     It's pretty amazing that all of the Ferraro's in our separate areas of town got lucky with the terrible flooding in Houston this past week. Schools were closed the whole week because it was pretty hard to get anywhere. Paul stayed home until Thursday ... Sunday night we got approximately 15 inches of rain. Monday morning kind of went like this:
Jo-Ann: "I don't think you should go to work because of all the flooding."
Paul: "It will be okay."
Jo-Ann: "Okay, well at least take my car which is a little higher. The news is telling people to not go anywhere if you don't have to."
Paul: Rolling his eyes at me. "It will be okay."
Jo-Ann: "Okay, Love you ... I'll see you in 15 minutes." (with a smirk on my face.)
4 minutes later  I hear the garage door open again.
Paul: "Couldn't get out of the subdivision. I'll work from home today."
     Patty did the smart thing when after getting to school they closed it, she started back home on Jones and Hwy. 6 ... realized it was getting too deep and pulled over to higher ground until Steve could "save" her.
     A lot of you know where Clay Road and Hwy. 6 are. This is our main outlet to get to the interstate and the rest of Houston ... well it has been closed since Monday and will probably be closed for 6-8 weeks. The videos are amazing. Bear Creek Golf Course is completely under water. The video below shows what is just about 2 miles down the road from us. The helicopters and planes that are flying over the house are like every 10 minutes, going down there to film.
     They say this is a 500 year flood. Where we as the Ferraro 7 lived in the 70's (Norchester Subdivision) some people had water up to their countertops. Boats were going into the subdivision rescuing people.
     Like I said, it's pretty amazing, with how spread out we all are, none of us had any damage.
