I watch the bayous. At various times in my life I have lived near Buffalo bayou, Greens bayou (before Greenspoint Mall was built), Cypress creek (Hi Ponerosa!!) and currently White Oak bayou. So when we have these rain events like now, I watch the bayous. So far, so good. Recent rains have been heavy but the bayous have behaved and not caused flooding problems. This mornings rainfall rates of up to 5" per hour in Montgomery and Harris county had me worried but thank goodness the line moved just fast enough so as to not cause bayou flooding. The next few days could bring more heavy rain at times... and I'll be watching the bayous.
