JD’s challenge: Rising Brazos River

As of Monday, anyhow, his most recent post from his home in Brazoria:

“Just stopped in to feed Bosco, check up on stuff, and grab a couple of things. Brazos water is still maybe a block away, toward the river. Which river, by the by, is about five miles wide now. Fortunately for us, it’s five miles wide to the other side. We are (so far) on the high side.”

Five miles wide. Oops. Still a block away, but the sewage plant is underwater.

“Gotta go. No toilets in Brazoria. Sewage treatment plant is underwater, so no drainage is requested. I’m not going to violate that request, though I a[m] relatively positive I’m about the only household that cares if I make shit come up in other folks showers and tubs.”

Thoughtful of you. Good luck. Water’s got to go down sometime. May it be soon.

UPDATE:  He came home on the 6th to find all okay: “This is the second year we’ve had Brazos flooding come fairly close to our house. Think God is giving me a hint? I’m looking for some higher ground.”
