It has been raining all day, quite heavily at times. More is on the way. Many of the roads are closed in some sections. Of course the low-water crossings are flooded and blocked. Some schools had to be closed because no one could get to them and others started classes late. Onion Creek is at its second highest crest in history. The Blanco River at Wimberley also flooded. These areas were flooded on Memorial Day. I feel sorry for the people who had just begun to recover from that huge flood and now they’re being inundated again.
There was a tornado south of here in San Marcos. One of the most unbelievable things that happened is that the storm flung a large truck onto the top of a roof! The storm moved on north, east of I-35 up to Round Rock. Part of I-35 had to be closed in Kyle. There have been several dramatic water rescues.
I went to the gym anyway because I had a doctor’s appointment scheduled after Silver Sneakers class. I arrived early so I could walk my two miles on the treadmill before class. However, I was the only one who showed up for class so, with only one person there, the instructor couldn’t have class. She needs a minimum of two participants for safety reasons; if one person should need medical help, there would be a person to stand by while the other went to get help.
Since there were so many streets flooded, I decided that I had better call my chiropractor to see whether I could get to his office on Bee Cave Road. Sure enough, the low sections were closed; so I had to reschedule my appointment for next Monday. The forecast is for clear weather by then.
