Rain is the Cloud's PeePee

How can you really argue against that logic?

It's dark, wet, and rather ominous, outside....we're definitely not going anywhere today.


  1. Same here -- though it is cold too :(

  2. Still soggy, but drying out. From the Chronicle:

    "Residents were warned of possible flash flooding.

    “People need to be very careful driving through high water,” said Francisco Sanchez, spokesman for the Harris County Office of Emergency Management. “There’s even some ponding on the freeways.”

    The National Weather Service said the region’s severe weather was caused by moisture-rich air from the Gulf sweeping into a storm system.

    “This type of storm system isn’t unheard of, but it’s something we might have once a year and then never want to see again,” said meteorologist Chris McKinney.

    Southern Harris County appeared to have borne the brunt of the storm. The Pasadena school district reported a caved-in roof at one campus and water damage at three other buildings.

    Workers found a 100-foot-by-60-foot roof collapse Saturday afternoon at a building on the campus of Beverly Hills Intermediate School. No one was injured, but the building is in danger of collapsing, officials said.

    “It looks like we may have some buckling of the building,” Pasadena ISD spokeswoman Candace Ahlfinger said.

    About 20,000 homes in the south of the county and Galveston County lost power at the height of the storm, according to CenterPoint Energy.

    The weather also caused havoc at Hobby and Bush Intercontinental airports, where a few flights were canceled but many were delayed by up to seven hours.

    The annual MS 150 bicycle tour with 13,000 participants had to be put off for a day because of the weather.

    The 150-mile tour to raise money for multiple sclerosis was set to begin Saturday in Houston but is expected to begin today in La Grange, said ride spokeswoman Gena Hyde. "
