Lots of Rain Is Fun For Some

I just love rain.  I enjoy listening to the rain fall.  I enjoy hearing the thunder.  For some reason I could not sleep during these storms.  I woke up and prayed for the safety of others and then tried to capture some shots in the rain and in the dark.

What you can't see here is that we got way too much rain in the Houston area.  There was lots of flooding.  The kids enjoyed that Nanny and Gramps were stranded one more day at the beginning of the week.  We all enjoyed a little more relaxed time with them as most flights were canceled coming in and out of the city.  (Sadly it was tax day and I spent most of the day trying to get my software to update so I could file.  I was ready but it wouldn't update.)  Nanny and Gramps let the next morning and our wet adventures continued.  Dad ended up not leaving at all that week, which was nice and rare.  

Pooker took this shot below.  The neighborhoods around her EMS station were under water.
All the local schools were out all week.  We ended up having extra friends to play with.  What a great week!

I should say that this group of kids went to Mass if they could, went to Adoration and offered many prayers for those that were in trouble.  They did understand that for some this was a sad week.
It is the crazy moments like these that will be forever a part of our hearts.
