I can't speak for everyone here at the forum, but I would like to express my regret and sympathy for the tragedy of the flood over in Houston, My heart and prayers go out to those of you who may have lost loved ones, suffered injuries, and basically had personal possesions ruined or lost forever.
Being in in DFW Texas, I feel a sense of brotherhood, but I also have a deep respect for Mother Nature's power when it comes to floods. I survived the big flood in 1993 back when I lived in Missouri. And living in a small town next to the Missouri river was even more frightening. The water was so high that the horizon dissappeared to the north, as if we lived on an ocean shoreline!
After the flood waters receded, the destruction left behind was beyond words. There is now an 80-foot deep lake left where a small pond existed.
Even today, buidings left standing still have the water lines embedded. I think most residents left them there as a reminder of how bad it can get.
