coastTexas Gulf Coast extreme weather!

So today I spent home from work. If youo've caught the news, the Houston Metro area is under a severe weather event, parts of the Metro area have gotten 20" of rain in the last 24 hours. This is an event much like Tropical Storm Allison in what was in 2000, 2001? Been a long time since we've seen rain like this...

This rain event has tested the mettle of my weatherstripping on the garage doors, and not all the news is good. I am getting water intrusion in under the door. Not much, but enough to bother me... Looks like I need to re seal the door bottoms!

I was able to verify my fix for the compressor seems to be holding. The compressor has been turned off a couple of days, and the tank is still holding at 140psi. Not sure why the initial 10PSI drop, but not enough to care about... Time to dump the tank, do some more cleanup, and try to mop up the water by the door!

I hope all of you have a safe and happy day, if you have friends or loved ones in Coastal Texas, this might be a good time to check in on them and make sure they are okay, a lot of my neighbors aren't...
