FWIW Houston got 35" of rain in a "single weekend" in June of 2005.
Much more than that during a two week period during TS Allison. IIRC
Swingman had about 4 feet of water in his home. His current home is
about that high above grade. One of the many major freeways in Houston,
SW Freeway 59, has a low area for several miles inside the inner 610
loop. That area of the freeway was under water for more than a week.
We are taking 16 feet deep, 8 lanes wide for a few miles.
I hope you guys survive unscathed.
My BIL and SIL are headed down there, her Dad passed away. I'm wondering
if they will really bury him with the conditions expected.
I hope everyone in the path is spared as much as possible.
Perhaps the 3.5' 'Green Burails' will help negate the CO2. :-/
(the bill passed in July)
Wouldn't a wet November shallow burial result in a spring-thaw meal for
bears and other critters, due to frozen ground heaving?

I don't know that you could attribute an ~80% delayed burial rate across 4 states to laziness.
Are funeral directors born with a lazy gene? ;-)
Without more details it's hard to know. BTW that article is 20 years old, maybe things
have changed. There are other articles out there, maybe they contain more detail.
