Shoal Creek Saloon on Lamar Boulevard.

A video released by Shoal Creek Saloon last night on its Facebook page clearly shows how fast flood waters can rise and captures the power of those raging waters. In the video posted to YouTube, you can see water rise several feet in a matter of seconds, tossing chairs and tables like toothpicks. Amazingly Shoal Creek was able to reopen the week after the Memorial Day weekend flooding, but with several inches of rain predicted in coming days, I’m sure those in the affected area are holding their breath.
