Really concerned here, high water on the side of our house and we have a drainage system. But the water has no where to go when the street is a river.

If I read the radar correctly, it could lighten up for you in Stafford within 30 min.

I sure hope so! It stopped for a but is now raining again. Only time I have seen water lapping up the driveway was during Allison. And we have never seen standing water on the side of the side of the house like we have seen this evening.
