Leprechaun’s Post Harvey Photo Ed


 

Too many faked and photoshopped pictures showing up on the bane of our existence, social media already. These are all real and largely come from CNN

I had added some identifiers and/or context to a few of them.

Above is the downtown metro Houston. All the brown you see is standing water.

Some near 4000 people were forced to take shelter at the George R. Brown Convention Center.

That’s a view of Tidwell Rd it is a main thoroughfare. All those boats you see are going ack and down the side streets to rescue people and bring them back to this assembly point where they will be transported to a shelter.

Below is Spring Texas, to which we are actually closer than Metro Houston.  It is only about 5 to 8 miles from us as you drive, probably closer as the crow flies.

This is our exit off I-45. From this location to our apartment might be 3 miles. The photo was taken the morning of the 28th. As you can see not only is the feeder/service/frontage road flooded by the highway is as well.

Buffalo Bayou flooding a portion of downtown Houston on the 27th.

About lethalleprechaun

I believe in being the kind of man who, when my feet touch the floor in the morn', causes the Devil to say "BUGGER ME! HIMSELF IS UP!" ======== I'm a White Married Heterosexual who fervently believes in the war(s) we are fighting, the Second Amendment which I plan on defending with my last breath and my last round of ammunition as well as Arizona's stringent law on Immigration and the need for the border wall. I'm a right of center Con-centrist with Tea Party & Republican sympathies who drives an SUV. I am a Life Time Member of the NRA, a Charter Member of the Patriots' Border Alliance and North American Hunters Association. If there is a season for it and I can shoot one I'll eat it and proudly wear its fur. I believe PETA exists solely to be a forum for Gays, Vegetarians, Hollywood snobbery to stupid to get into politics and Soybean Growers. The ACLU stopped protecting our civil liberties sometime after the 1960s and now serves its own bigoted headline grabbing agenda much in the same way as the Southern Poverty Law Center. I am ecstatic that WE the PEOPLE finally got mad enough to rise up and take back the Government from WE the ENTITLED and reverently wish the Liberals would just get over the loss and quit whining/protesting all the time. After all they're just reaping what they've sown. I am Pro-choice both when it comes to the issue of abortion AND school prayer. I believe in a government for the people, by the people which represents and does the people's will. Therefore I an Pro States rights and mandatory term limits but against special interest group campaign contributions and soft money. I think that sports teams who allow their players to sit or take a knee during the National Anthem should be boycotted until the message is received that this is not acceptable behavior for role models for children. I believe Congressional salaries should be voted on bi-annually by the people they represent and not by themselves. I think Congress should be subject to every law they pass on the populace including any regarding Social Security or Healthcare. Speaking of the Healthcare bill (or con job as I see it) I hope Trump will overturn it and set things back to normal. I oppose the building of an Mosque or ANY Islamic center at or within a 10 mile radius of Ground Zero in New York. I will fight those in favor of this until hell freezes over and then I will continue to fight it hand to hand on the ice. Further I think the ban on immigrants from certain nations known to harbor and promote terrorism is a justified measure, at least until we can come up with better methods of vetting and tracking those non citizens we allow in the country. We did not inflict this measure on them those who refuse to point out, denounce or fight radical religious terrorism brought this upon themselves.

    I kept checking my inbox, and became more concerned as the night continued. Yes, we have been seeing the flooding and devastation on numerous news channels. But, Paul’s words to
    me when he returned from search and rescue at Ground Zero on 9/11… the pictures on the news DID NOT show what the real reality of the scene is, I made my donation to the Red Cross, and
    thinking it is like a drop in the bucket, but if EVERYBODY could find it in their heart….to make a donation it will HELP, Thank you for sending the photos. Keep safe along with Molly and the Ninja Kitties.

      I agree, Joe.

      The scope of the entire event is very hard to wrap your mind around.
      Hell, we were here and lived through it and as yet still really haven’t managed a full grasp of the enormity of it all.

      One thing for sure Harvey has given me a new appreciation for that old commercial saw…”Nobody messes with Mother Nature.” We were told by one of the weather guessers that if all the water that fell on Houston were distributed across the contiguous 48 states, the result would cover them all to a depth of about 1/4 inch.
