This is what happens when it rains in houston for one day

So I got a call from baby boy's preschool around 1pm on tuesday. They said, "you may want to come get your child because the roads are becoming inaccessible." Okay, I thought. I'm just glad they called before it got too bad. Or so I thought.

These pictures are not in order so just roll with it. When I pulled onto the street that the school was on I knew there was no way in hell my car would make it down the road. Because it was COVERED in water. I actually had to call BD to come in his truck. Meanwhile, parents are pulling up and we are all wondering how we are going to get our kids out. I called the school to see what we were supposed to do. All I got was a "uh, we aren't really sure." Great. After about a half hour the dads said screw it... they rolled up their pants and started wading through the flood water to get our children.


BD coming out with baby boy and a classmate. Another dad going in...he was smart enough to get swim trunks on first.


The kids, not really sure what to think of all this water.


Dad's coming out with their kids.

Dad going in...


Thank God for all the dads or the kids might still be there

"Well, I think we are just going to wait a few days for the water to receed. See ya!"

Holy shit! Those look like hurricane aftermath pictures! I shudder to think what happens if it rains for two days. Do you build an arc?

Your Live Traffic Feed makes me feel exposed...
