News, reactions, worries?  I live inside a Cat 4/5 flood zone, and I'm hopin' it doesn't come this way, but it looks like it's going to.  I know there's some of y'all here just west of me in Houston, are any of you evacuating?

I live in Brenham,TX, about 75mi NW of Houston,
so no worries here but the usual winds, trees, power outages, etc..  

Let it rain, please..

But I've been working in Houston for the last 20 yrs. at a multimedia facility.
It is much closer to the coast than home is.  ( SW Houston )

Also, much friends and family in Houston and surrounding areas..
Most all of them , since we were all born & raised round' here' ..
( Baytown, Pasadena, Dayton/Liberty, West Houston..all low lying areas. )

So, my house could become Camp ke4nt, in the event of a real disaster.

rain! Rain! RAIN!!

Our pond is over 4 1/2 feet low. It's literally a rapidly shrinking puddle now.

Area lakes are just as bad off. Maybe worse.

Haven't had a decent rain here since February or March.

First year, they had it easy. Good summer, easy winter. The next year, the last rain was in February! By June, even the jackrabbits had sense enough to get off the Mesa Verde!

Well, I don't live in the Mesa Verde. They've had more rain than we have this year.

Bring on the RAIN!

I would love some rain just to cool it down.  We are nearing October and it's still getting close to 100F!  

They were saying on NPR that if N'awlins gets more than 9 inches of rain or swells reach over 3 foot (they are estimating the storm to bring 9 foot swells) then then all the billions of dollars of work they have done so far would be gone and the city would be more flooded than before.  Effed up.

Wow, it looks like everyone that posted so far is from Texas.  ke4nt1 email some Blue Bell.  I like milk chocolate.

Good Luck

Well, here's (finally) a post from someone who is not a Texan, has never been a Texan, and does not even play a Texan on TV. I'm just your friend and I'm concerned about you. Please stay safe and check back in when you get a chance.

Sorry,  I don't do windows.
