Water effects

Even though the Tropical Storm, mini-Hurricane Alex only lasted a short time, we are still seeing the after effects of the wind and rain.

And then… the grass. My desert landscape of a yard is now furry green. Get ready TxDOT and city workers – you have some work ahead of you to get rid of the fuzz on the side of the off-ramps.

Pro8News (no video available online – yet) covered the growing river and the flooding that is already being seen as it covers part of Los Dos Laredos Park. Also covering was El Mañana newspaper.

    I saw on KSAT this morning that they have opened the flood gates at Lake Amistad and parts of Del Rio are under a mandatory evacuation… Yikes- what will this bring us? I can send you a power point from one of my husbands coworkers of the devestation in Monterrey- so sad.

      Yes, but I think it is gone now. The other tree on Main is still there – or it was this morning. I still haven’t stopped by the office to visit with Meg and to say hello to you.

    Apologies! The second photo, of the tree on Matamoros. It would be for LareDOS. We tried to get a photo of it yesterday, but they’d already hauled it away.

  5. my, my, what a surprise, I just bought that house from LISD, how funny to see it here, well funny because thankfully there was no damage to the property, the tree has been removed.

    I will steal your picture, have a wonderful day
