The terrible floods in Texas are unfolding in areas where many of our friends live, in Blanco, Wimberly, Austin and Houston. As far as we know, none of our friends have been injured or lost their homes, but things are very confused at present. What’s worse, more rain is coming in a few days. Hopefully this disaster won’t turn into an epic catastrophe.
The Texas Hill Country is known for extreme rainfall events, and when we lived in San Antonio, the city experienced no less than two hundred year storms. So-called hundred year storms. The first one flooded our apartment. When the second one came, we had a house. The water stopped just a block away.
Many times I’ve mentioned one of my favorite bible quotes: “God gave Noah the rainbow sign. No more water, the fire next time.” So, was that wrong? Many Texans might think so at this point. But I think that it’s far more likely that Muslim terrorists will eventually have another great success. Then it will indeed be the fire next time. But let’s hope not!
