It has been a rough few days.... 

Callie and Matt's wedding went off without a hitch (well actually the did get hitched)! The rain held off all afternoon and evening...it was great!

Sunday morning was a little scary with threats of the new inlaws (in a rental house) possibly flooding and not being able to get in touch with them to warn them. Some other dear/close friends home flooded up 7' in their single story house with them barly excaping into the attic.

We spent the last two days trying to salvage some of their stuff and gutting all the sheetrock and insulation out of their house.

We know several other families whos homes flooded but thankfully no one was lost. Many of these houses were not anywhere near the river or even the 500 year flood plain.

Rough time in San Marcos area right now!

Pray!

Sorry for all the chaos out there. My daughter's husband is in San Marcos right now and it definitely isn't pretty. Hang in there.

From Russ on Tue, May 26, 2015 at 15:12:39 from 74.114.3.253

Wow, sorry to hear about the flooding. So glad nobody was lost and you're able to help those whose homes have flooded. Water is a powerful force of nature.

Congrats to you and the family! Stinks to follow up a wedding with the weekend we just had, glad everyone is ok.

How's the drying out going? Best wishes and prayers coming your way.

Keep up the great fight!

Hopefully everything is turning around down there. Scary stuff.

Wow, that sounds terrible! Glad to hear nobody was hurt.

Hi guys,

I've been on vacation for 2-1/2 weeks. We went on a cruise in the Mediterranean (Italy, Greece, Turkey).

I still haven't been able to run. My foot is still too sore but it is getting better. I did cycling class two days on the cruise and actually ran one mile on the treadmill but it wasn't very good. Hopefully I'll be back in a few more weeks.

All else is good except for the 17 pounds I've gained! :-)
