Crazy Storms

We are having some crazy storms down here in south Texas today!  As I was getting out of bed for work, I got a text from our nanny.  She was stranded in Aransas Pass (where she lives - a little northeast of us) where they had 3-4 feet of water on the roadways.  At first, we were just going to wait it out and see if, with a couple of hours, she could get down and I could still go to work.  However as we started watching the radar and weather reports, it was pretty clear that this wasn't going away quickly, so I told her to stay home.  Everything that I needed to get done today can be done from home (other than some advising appointments that can be rescheduled).  Not long after that, our skies here in Corpus started looking like this:
That was about the same time that we got a campus alert from A&M-Kingsville that there were tornadoes around there.  Fortunately, it's just been a lot of rain and thunder at this point (it's been about an hour since these were taken).  We've gotten about 2 inches of rain in the last 3 hours.  We have some trees that need some good rain, so I'm excited about that!  The tornadoes can stay away, though.

The best part of the day, though, is getting to spend it playing with this sweet face...
