Welcome to the Lakes of River Trails

And when I say lakes, I mean LAKES!!!
We got a lot of rain overnight on Tuesday and into Wednesday morning. And of course, since we're in one of the lower lying neighborhoods, all the run off flows in our direction.

This is not really a lake. It just turned into one overnight.

Uh oh! Trouble up ahead.

Looks like Trinity is under water.

Yep, underwater. I had gone to work this way earlier that day (because east bound Trinity was closed and Precinct Line was closed. So I had to go west bound Trinity and to 820 to Hwy 10). 

So I had to cut through this neighborhood. Lucky for us, the flooding was right in between the two roads we needed to use to get home.

Sophia and I decided to drive over to our lake and see how much water it had.

Those trees right there are not part of the lake. They line Precinct Line. Yep, that's Precinct Line Road.

I'm just glad we were able to make it home safely.

That's terrible. You and your neighbors need to go to City Council meeting each week until they do something about the drainage. I'm so glad you made it home safely.
