I lived for many years in Gainesville, Texas. Perhaps you have heard that there has been some flooding there (it’s about 30 miles north of where I now live). My sister sent me these views of the flood devastation in the area. She got them in an e-mail, so I don’t know who to credit. Gainesville
is was a lovely little town, very picturesque. Not far from where you see all this damage are many huge mansions that were built by the cattle barons back in the 1800s.
Send your good thoughts to these folks. They are going to have a hard time bouncing back from this one, because the possibility of more rain is in the forecast. Click the thumbnails to enlarge them.
