This week was to be a pirate parade in honor of “Talk Like A Pirate” day here in Port Aransas. Unfortunately, the parade had to be canceled due to rain. We did get a lot of rain Friday and yesterday. Invest 95L dropped about eight inches before it was over. So instead of a parade here are a few shots of the results of the rain.
This is the pond behind our house. Up to now, this is as far as it rose.
The pond is within its banks.
Given the high tides due to water being pushed against the dunes the city moved all the portable toilets to higher ground.
You can see the tides came up to the dunes.
This is Twelfth Street in Port Aransas. The water did not reach any of the houses. That pile to the left is a house recently torn down due to Hurricane Harvey damage.
The golf course needed pumps to get the water off the greens.
The city put up high water warnings where necessary.
Drainage ditches are very full. Luckily the rain quit last night.
Closer to home here is a shot of the access to the beach and the golf cart path and parking area. You can see some timbers have been dislodged. The white fence surrounds the pool, and the dark structure is the new shade structure recently completed. All Harvey repairs. Sorry about the parade but thanks for getting wet with me on the tour.
