Soggy, Flooded Houston Watches Its River Banks

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.
