Just a while lot of water so far in Houston. It's going to be Wednesday before the eye goes by rporter's house. It hasn't made it back to the gulf to get charged up again. Still looping around north east of Corpus Christi as a tropical storm.

I don't think it will be much stronger by the time it gets up to Highlands, but when it comes ashore again it could do some new wind damage. It is strange how it's just looping around and hardly moving. That's what they predicted and that's what it is doing.

How you doing Rporter? I thought you should be safe in a place named "Highlands" but I see it is about 40 feet lower than Houston! Are you up to your neck yet?

What fresh Hell is this?
It's ALL of the FIRE ANTS in the Houston area, assembled as a massive flotilla of DEATH on the river, after the floodwaters drove them from their underground nests.

Perfect opportunity to go out with a backpack sprayer loaded with some insecticide. Chance to get thousands of queens and millions of workers, before they get to dry land. Just don't wade into it, and wear some waders you can spray with the bug juice.

King County Sheriff (WA) pulls a motorcyclist over in a very odd manner:

No citation in that motorcycle stop? That is especially weird. Did the Sheriff see the motorcycle from a side street but not actually clock him?

He certainly is throwing around a lot of charges to then not bother to write a citation. Or maybe he did not have a citation pad with him in the car?

He really needs some training. You approach with your badge out, not your gun drawn and no badge. That's a good way to get killed.

Exactly. At first, I thought the guy was being robbed and his GoPro camera caught it all on the video feed. Plus the way the cop was holding his gun, close to his side was weird.

Well, all that flood water might just wash out all the sulfuric acid!

So I've checking out an urban millennial site lately. Today I interacted with a lot with the commenters. I'd say more than half were pro-Trump. I just can't wrap my head around that. Are there really "Russian bot" trolls? The site just made no sense.

One supposed black female, millennial, was singing the praises of white people and how white people are to be worshipped basically for bringing African-Americans from Africa because they have better lives now.

I was all: WTF? Hmm
