A few weeks back, I drove to Houston thinking the weather was going to be great. I even checked the forecast the night before and the weather people knew nothing of a tropical storm of this size brewing in the gulf. It turned out to be the fifth wettest tropical cyclone on record in the continental United States, causing devastating and record-breaking floods in southeast Texas.
Video starts heading south into Houston via I-45 and then the Hardy Toll to downtown. Leaving the next morning, I depart in the opposite direction from the storm system via Texas State Highway 6 towards College Station and catch a glimpse of the inflow clouds feeding the storm system further southeast.
