“Texas Flood” Cedar Park, 2016


I am typing this by candle-light because we are having a blackout in our neighborhood. We’ve been having a lot of rain all day, but the power decided to go out now when there isn’t any rain falling. Go figure. I wonder if there was an accident and someone ran into a power line? It’s been about half an hour now which is longer than usual… hope it comes back soon.

But it’s also nice to just have the candles (and laptop/cellphone lights) too. And it is quiet!

Today was yet another Pokémon GO!-filled day, walking around in the drizzling weather with all the other people out and about. It was so fun! I made a lot of progress in my collection and we found a great place to catch a lot of good pokémon. I think we may go back tomorrow to get some more.

Today’s photo is of one of the parks we visited today. You can see that the water level has crested over the banks of the lake and now the trails are partially covered. Can you make out the bench that is in the water? The rain didn’t keep the locals from enjoying the day, though. Lots of people out at the park doing all sorts of activities – picnicking, fishing, SUPing, kayaking, biking, catching pokémon, etc. Life is good!

I hope you had a good day. Stay dry!
