Subject: Travel pool #6/Pearland relief center
Arrived 130pm CT at First Church in suburban Pearland.
Motorcade passed a car dealership where most of the inventory had open doors, presumably to dry out. Neighborhoods here flooded, per local poolers from the Houston Chronicle.
Near the destination we crossed several culverts. The water was maybe five to seven feet below the high water line.
Gas station with $2.25 per gallon. Cheaper than pooler paid in DC two days ago by 50 cents.
Small clusters of people on the sidewalks waved and took pix. One group of 8 or so waved small American flags.
Thank you Trump and We love Trump hand drawn signs as we arrived in Pearland. Passes a fire station where a military high water vehicle was parked.
