Houston area father and artist Aric Harding posted video to Instagram a couple days ago, in which he's playing piano in the family's flooded home.

Sit back, watch and listen.

Based on later Instagram posts, he and his family of nine (plus a dog) appear to be OK. 

Water began broaching their doors Sunday. Now, with the water receded, they're tearing out everything that needs to go.

At least 31 people have been killed, though the LA Times says that number will probably rise as responders begin block-by-block searches of the worst-hit areas in Houston.

Tens of thousands of people have been displaced, according to ABC News.
