Good evening friends, neighbors, country persons, the Mad Houstonian here with my take on what happened last night and what it looked like in my part of Houston this morning.
My work schedule had me doing Sunday, Memorial Day and today, the benefit being I'd get holiday pay for Monday by working the three, 8 hr., days.
I get a lot of shifts that have me off at 1030 or 11pm, meaning a 25 min. walk, or 10 min. bike ride, to catch the bus home, or the choice to ride my new bike home if I want.
Not Monday night, though; I got off at 730pm and got home by 830pm, just as last nights festivities got under way.
Sunday morning, from 5 to 8am, it was thundering, lightening and raining, like the dickens in my part of Houston....Sunday afternoon, I briefly saw a news report on the break room TV about a Tornado in Houston, with a video someone took of the lil' darling...I had no idea, until I saw the Monday Houston Chronicle, that the thing touched down just 2 miles SE of my where I live...now what could top that for a story to share, right?
