Broken Fence

Many of you have heard of or read about the flooding in Texas from all the rains we had. As we were driving on a country road where we would never have driven when the rains were coming down, we did see some damage that I'm sharing with you, and joining in with Theresa for Good Fences even though these aren't so good anymore.

Note the marker sign for water depth and the tree that was uprooted by the water. I'd venture to guess the water got to the "5" mark on this marker.


Here's the fence torn down by the force of the water.


On the other side of the road, the water continues to rush downstream in a creek bed that was dry just a couple of months ago.

This water is pouring into the culvert under the road, fed by the drainage from fields upstream.

Some of the rivers are still a bit treacherous, and parents are being warned to stay with their children at all times if floating in the river, as the water levels are still unpredictable.

Have a great Thursday and a wonderful weekend. We are still in the process of moving and hooking up technology, and today is actually the day the moving guys will be showing up to take all of our furniture to the new house. I promise to be back more regularly soon.

Good morning, the floods and damage in Texas were horrible. I hope things get back to normal quickly. I hope all goes well with your move today! Have a happy day!

Happy "Movin' in Day". Hope all goes well in Texas and the water recedes to its normal level. Happy New Home buddy :)

Rachel said...

The floods were so bad that it put my uncle out of work. He's got a baby on the way in about a month. I can't imagine all the other families that are in his position or worse.

Water is so powerful Many do not realize how quickly it can become dangerous.

Lin Floyd said...

happy moving, water can be powerful even where we live once the monsoons start....

Gosia k said...

The flood is always horrible the biggest one was in 1997 when many people lost their lives

Cherdo said...

My sister in Ohio has complained about the rain there, too, but that damage in your photos is awful!

When the water level is so unpredictable I would not have my kids in it. Just the other day here, some one had their kids playing in a creek, the one got washed away and the adult tried to save it. Well, the kid that got washed away was able to grab something and hang on, but the adult drowned.

All I can say is good luck, so sorry. We had a bit of a storm here on Monday, my land line and internet all still out. Very odd, as it wasn't that bad of a storm.

Best wishes with your move; and I hope you have no water problems.

Tanya Breese said...

i think i'd wait on a river float for now! good luck getting your moving done...we're moving in a month...i'm excited but overwhelmed! just 15 minutes down the road but all that packing is a pain!

Terri @ Coloring Outside the Lines said...

Have a smooth move- it is so hot right now-I would melt in the heat if I had to actually move around out there. Be safe on the roads..I am seeing lots of videos of roads just caving in and washing away. So sad!~

Mike said...

Hopefully the reservoirs are full again and stay that way for awhile.

Anvilcloud said...

Flood or drought, eh?

All the best with the move.

The proverbial power of nature... wow!

Too little water, and then too much. Nature does things her own way...

All the best for the move.

Paula said...

Congratulations on your new house. Will you still be in interesting Fredricksburg?

Janie Junebug said...

Oh, yeah, the flooding. I forgot to ask my sisters in Texas if they're okay. If they weren't I might have heard by now, but I doubt it.

Love,
Janie

Ida said...

Such damage is so sad to see.

Linda W. said...

Sorry to hear about all the flooding Texas and other parts of the country are getting. Boy, some parts of the country are in severe drought, and others have more water than they know what to do with! Crazy, crazy weather.

Indrani said...

Oh! all this flooding.
Parts of our country too is affected.

Terra said...

That looks like rough flooding, and I am glad your move is going ahead in spite of the weather.

Grantham Lynn said...

We sure have had some damage. I posted about the flooding too.
Hope all goes well with your move.

Kay said...

We've been hearing about all the flooding on the mainland here in Hawaii. We, on the other hand are having a bit of a drought.
