    Storms Saturday Night

    We were fortunate to come through the storms OK Saturday night and hope all here did, as well. House and trees are OK. Will need to put a section of fencing that was blown down back up when things dry out a bit, but we were blessed not to have serious damage nor injuries here at our home.

    Many were not as fortunate and our thoughts and prayers are with them......

    That storm affected the entire eastern half of the US in some ways, Harry... Here in north Alabama, it was scary for a few hours with strong winds, horizontally blowing rain (between 3-4 inches), and tornado warnings for several hours (several tornadoes in our area which killed at least 3 in Alabama), but my family made it thru it OK too. I even cleaned up some car parts from chairs/seats in my basement so my daughters' families could come over... (I really need to get these parts back on cars!)..

    The stress that these sorts of storms cause (with their early warnings constantly on TV weather) probably contributes to early aging... but without the warnings, many more people would die in the storms!

    Thanks, Carl! Hope all went well at your place as well.

    Bama, glad y'all came though the storm OK.

    Wish we could have basements or storm cellars around here.

    Best regards,

    They would be full of water if we had them.

    Exactly! Water table around Houston area ranges from about 3 ft. to 7 ft. below grade, depending on where you are and how much its rained in recent months.

    Only buildings I am aware of that have basements in the Houston area are the high rise buildings downtown. These have perforated piping embedded in gravel barriers around their perimeter below basement level and sump pumps going 24/7.

    Best regards,
