The terrible floods in Texas are unfolding in areas where many of our friends live, in Blanco, Wimberly, Austin and Houston. As far as we know, none of our friends have been injured or lost their homes, but things are very confused at present. What’s worse, more rain is coming in a few days. Hopefully this disaster won’t turn into an epic catastrophe.
The Texas Hill Country is known for extreme rainfall events, and when we lived in San Antonio, the city experienced no less than two hundred year storms. So-called hundred year storms. The first one flooded our apartment. When the second one came, we had a house. The water stopped just a block away.
