Break out the canoes its flooding here

Mother Nature is just having a great old time here in Houston TX. In the last 10 days we have gotten around 14 inches of rain, which would have been ok if it had been around an inch a day, but nooooo it is coming in batches and we are flooding all over the place. Last night the storms were going on forever and we woke up to a flooded Houston again. Most of the schools are closed today or will open later.

Introducing Czarina!

This is Czarina. She is a female Russian tortoise. I decided she needed a regal name lol. I think she is 3-5 yrs old, will get confirmation from my reptile vet when she goes in for a visit. I haven't measured her yet but think she is around 4 inches from head to tail across the shell not counting head and tail. She might grown another couple of inches. She didn't come from the best situation. She is in need of some really good food and TLC. Overall she looks pretty good considering her beginning in life. I hadn't planned on adding her to my family but you know how things work out lol.
