It's Raining, It's Pouring

About that whole "maybe we fixed it" thing?  Not so much.  
It hasn't made it in the house, but it was less than 1/8" away, and we were doing everything we could to divert the water away from the house.  Once the water covers the drain outlet at the street in front, all bets are off for the improved drainage in the back, and we seem to have some trouble with the storm drains in the street.

was the entire Settlement underwater or just your cursed area? The guy who came to inspect the storm drains needs to be quaking in fear right about now though...

We didn't have that kind of flooding in our area (it helps to live less than a block from Oyster Creek) but we did go to Friendswood and on the way saw entirely too many flooded houses.
