    Have they been forecasting that Laura and Marco will miss Virginia? Is that a good job?

    Laura hasn't even hit yet, how can you say the forecast was good?

    Roger that! Always better to err on the side of safety, Gary. Low lying areas near the coast where we are expecting a storm surge are being evacuated around Galveston and the Bolivar Peninsula......



    When wife and I were working on the fence yesterday, I noticed that the emergency drain for our A/C unit was running full tilt onto the ground. So today, we had the HVAC guy out to clear the primary drain line up in the attic. Glad we saw the emergency drain running. We seldom go to that part of the yard. Last thing we need in 100 degree heat is for the A/C to crap out. We had the pan overflow a long time ago and after we unclogged the primary and emergency drain lines and fixed the sheet rock, we had a float level switch installed that would shut the A/C off if both drain lines became clogged over time and the drain pan filled with water.

    Best regards,

    Harry

    The NWS is now saying they're expecting a storm surge of 10-20 feet, so HOPEFULLY any of you guys who live in any low lying coastal areas of Louisiana and Texas have evacuated already! A large storm surge takes NO prisoners!

    As the storm makes landfall near the TX/LA border, they've even taken the rain out of the Houston forecast. But it's going to be awful in Port Arthur, Beamont, and especially Lake Charles.

    Y'all who will be affected...... Stay safe as the storm passes through. Here NW of Houston, we are not on the 'dirty side' of the storm, but it is a large and powerful Cat. 4 hurricane that could intensify to a Cat. 5 so always best to take common sense precautions. At the center, this storm has sustained winds of 150 MPH with gusts of 175 MPH. Thankfully, our family members and ourselves who live near the coast are all on the West side of the storm around 125 miles from the center, so conditions will be much less severe here than nearer to the center of the storm.

    High tide in Galveston at 1:38 AM and should coincide with tidal surges of 2-4 ft. in that area. Higher (6 - 9 ft.) at the Bolivar peninsula on East side of Galveston Bay. Rainfall near 3-4" per hour intensity near son's homes (and ours) as the storm comes ashore. Sustained winds are projected at 50 MPH for Houston, but will likely be a bit higher nearer the coast. So y'all be careful and we wish everyone a safe and blessed evening as the storm passes through.

    We had a late dinner this evening. Comfort food. I made a crock pot of beans, dirty rice, corn and lean beef brisket. Took a few hours, but well worth the effort. Watched Day Three of the convention awaiting the hurricane as it neared landfall. Very uplifting and positive in stark contrast to the opposition's negative messaging.

    Our animals can sense the change in weather. Outside cats have gone to their high and dry hidy holes during bad weather. Our dogs are quite concerned and we have reassured them. You can tell from their body language. Our inside cats are best buddies with the dogs and 5 of them have taken up positions either snuggling up to their respective favourite dogs or surrounding them close by, guarding them just as cats guard the shoes of their masters left outside the temples in Thailand and elsewhere.

    Roger that, Carl! We dodged the bullet here NW of Houston. Eye of the storm passed over Cameron, Louisiana in the wee hours of the morning. 150 MPH sustained winds with gusts to 175 MPH and pushing 10 - 15 ft. of storm surge water 40 miles inland there right after landfall. They really have it rough. On the Texas side of the Sabine River...... Beaumont, Orange, Winnie and Port Arthur really took a beating.

    Over 1/4 million people without electric power by that point. Probably more now, as the storm moves farther inland. My parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles are all buried in Beaumont, Texas. Some at the old cemetery by the Neches River where Babe Didrickson and the Big Bopper are buried. Others farther downstream at the small Jewish cemetery on Pine Street there. No family living there now. Prayers for all affected.

    Best regards,

    Harry
