Well, as predicted, more rains came and so did the flooding. 

Intrepid freelance photographer Gilbert Bernal made his way over by the San Jacinto River and came up with an amazing slide show.  Clearly, if you live anywhere near this area, you aren't going much of anywhere. 

While we'd like this all to be over, forecasts call for continued rain through Saturday. Over at spacecityweather.com, they're saying it's just not moving out of the area. 

So be smart about your driving. And know that by next Monday, the weather is supposed to be beautiful for the week ahead. 

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
