Mother nature is letting her presence be known in Houston -- again.

There's a chance of rain every day this week and if you saw that constant flickering of lighting Saturday night, it wasn't just a show. The lighting strikes caused two fires in Northwest Harris County.

At the Landmark Apartments on Barker Cypress at Morton, the strikes caused a three-story apartment building to catch on fire. No-one was injured but three apartments sustained water damage.
Down the road lightening struck a house in Cy-Fair on Possum Hollow at Woodedge. Luckily no injuries there either.

High water flooding on the North Freeway feeder road at North Vista caused plenty of problems. As flash flood warnings threaten, Meyerland residents are still rebuilding their homes after last month's floods.

"This house was built in 1960 and hasn't flooded until this event," said longtime Meyerland resident Julia Groves.

But Groves isn't panicking.  After all -- the worst has already happened.

"It's no big deal," she says.

"The house was flooded, everything is out of it, so we'll just take the rain."

The rains sure are keeping trades people busy.
"I went through Tropical Storm Allison and now this... we've been having for the last two months, I can basically tell you that alot of people's insurance has been working overtime," said  Michael Garland, a Houston landscaper who works with Houston flood victims.

Hopeful for the future, Julia pushes forward.

"I don't expect for us to have flooding again for years," said Groves.

"I hope."
