Aftermath …

Hurricane Harvey is now a tropical storm, but the rain continues unabated in many areas.


Fortunately Catbeard Manor remains high and (relatively) dry. We lost a few small limbs on our oak trees (alive and dead), but no other damage. A drive around the subdivision showed evidence of high water encroaching on a few lawns. Note the high water mark in the photo below.


The retention pond for our subdivision is brim full,


as is the creek that flows past our subdivision.


We were VERY lucky. Other folks downstream of us not so much. National news will continue to show Houston flooding for many days. My heart goes out to them.
