Crapy weather in Houston

Well I hope everyone is staying dry. I know there is alot of flooding and hope everyone is ok. Anybody that has been to my house knows that I have a semi steep driveway. But here are some pics of my street right now. Its still raining so im sure it will get alot higher. Anybody got a boat I can borrow?

Crapy pics I know:

My buddy near Galveston is just about to drown. It's about to come into his house...

Ya'll be safe!

A man may smile and bid you hail
Yet wish you to the devil;
But when a good dog wags his tail,
You know he's on the level.

Well I'm at work right now and was supposed to be off, but got called in due to the guy that was supposed to work is flooded in at his house. He's supposed to show up in the morning so I can go home, but doubt water will be low enough. This guy has a MK VIII which sounds like it got a little flooded.
I've had no problems at all with the flooding. On my way in to work saw a LOT of cars on the side of the freeway and especially the frontage roads. Just south of Beltway 8 on south side of town up to near 610, frontage road on nortbound side of I-45 was one long pond.

Go to Pep Boys. They're only about $50.

It's only funny until someone gets hurt.
Then it's freaking hilarious.

We will not be doing much since we have a date Sunday night. Concert you know.
We have to use the babysitter wisely.

Wolfies eh? Cory told me he went to Hooters and Wolfies 2 days in a row to compare.
Food was ok at Wolfies but the girls were a bit cuter. However he said to sit at the bar. The table lottery wasn't so good.
