First I would like to say if you are a praying person please pray for Anni, a blogger, and her husband, who live in Corpus Christi. They are in Harvey, the hurricane's path. Our area is expected to get a large amount of rain and wind. John and I decided after many news alerts to go to Walmart to stock up on some food that we wouldn't have to cook in case the electricity goes out. My cook stove is gas but has an electric starter. Not sure how it would work if I used a match. We were surprised to find the store so crowded already with buggy traffic in the isles. They were already our of water. Thank goodness on a whim a few days ago I had bought a case of the kind of water I use. They were getting more jugs as we left. We live fairly near Hwy. 37 which goes straight into Corpus and saw on TV the bumper to bumper traffic. It must be scary to be in that. We spent some time securing garbage cans and recycle cans and such after dark. Thinking better to be safe then sorry and maybe the rain will be hard tomorrow. As far as I can think I may only have one more thing to do. I have a large barn star on the front of my house and may need to get it down as it may be swinging high if the wind develops as they are saying. We will welcome the rain but pray for the safety of the people.
