The prompts for this week are:

  1. Starts with H
  2. Simple (Simplify)
  3. Green

Starts with H and Simple:

Hurricane Harvey has filled the ditches and the end of our driveway with loads of water.  Mother Nature has simplified this post for me! Isn’t our neighbor’s grass, though very wet, a pretty shade of green?

Taken 26 August 2017. A new day dawns, post-Category 4 landfall. Praise Heavenly Father, we were spared the direct hit. Please pray for those who were not as fortunate. This water is at the end of our driveway. Only 5 houses in our neighborhood have power right now. Ours is one of them. Have a blessed day!😊

Have a blessed weekend, y’all!

    Wow, Suz, you look about as flat as us. I hope you made it through the night alright and pray you stay dry until Harvey leaves. That’s our prayer also for us and others. We flooded in Friendswood with 33 inches of Clear Creek water in our home. We survives but not fun. It lingers too, tropical storm in July and moved back in for Christmas without floor coverings.

    • Yes, it is pretty flat here. Our neighborhood is a little more elevated than those on the other side of town, who are probably very much under water right now.
      I’m so sorry you’ve had to endure flood waters in your home in the past and for so long before you got to move back in. We’re praying for all of you, too. We have a loved one in Cypress and they said it was starting to flood there earlier tonight. They got sent home early from work because of it. Our daughter just told me that the news reports say it is going to linger over us for days, bringing lots more heavy rain.
      Stay safe and have a blessed Sunday.

    I hope you remain safe as the rain pummels the Texas Gulf coast. Keep dry 🙂

    • Thanks, Ralph. So far, there’s no water coming into the house, but the yards in the neighborhood are a mess. Some of them look like lakes. Thankfully, it comes down, the rain stops for awhile, and this very thirsty ground soaks a good bit (but not all) in, then the rain starts again. It could be a lot worse here than it is and I imagine it is very bad on the other side of our town. We haven’t braved going out to see how they’re faring since the closest river is near flood stage and the other river is 10 feet+ over flood stage last I checked.
      Have a blessed week!

    This hurricane is horrible. Hope you stay safe. Thank you so much for joining Friday’s Hunt.

    • Thanks, Teresa. I read an article earlier that said this one was even worse than Hurricane Carla from back in 1961, which evidently has been the record holder until now.
      We’re good so far, just a lot of water, and it is going to get a lot wetter before it’s all over. Thankfully, none of it is inside our house yet. We’re pretty sure we heard a baby alligator out there last night amongst all the very happy froggy noises! That was a bit disconcerting.
      Have a blessed week. 🙂

    I have seen a lot of pictures from Harvey and yours is definitely one of the nicest! It has been devastating down there. I am glad you are safe and hope that the water recedes quickly for you. We are lucky up here that we usually only get the very tail end of hurricanes that go up the east coast.

    • Thank you! Our neighborhood seems to be drying out, though the road behind our house is flooded and they are discouraging travel on it. The rest of town is under water. Our neighborhood is an island, of sorts, right now. Heavenly Father continues to protect us and for that we are very thankful!
      I hope this season will be very calm for you and your area.
      Have a blessed day. 🙂
