Update on Harvey

Not a drop of rain here, some wind at times, but not bad. We've been out some and so glad we prepared yesterday. Walmart parking lot over run with cars. This being an oilfield town we have many motels. I would guess they are full. My neighbor works at one and she usually comes home about two in the afternoon. I didn't see her car and it still isn't there. One motel in particular never went over. Don't know why, but their parking lot was full of cars today. I feel for all the people who have to evacuate, it must be very expensive. We could kind of tell the people in a restaurant that were passing through because of the storm. I ask one lady if they were passing through from the storm. She said yes but we were coming anyway to take our grandson to Waco to college but yes now we are coming because of the hurricane too. I wished her luck and the hopes they didn't have too much damage. She replied we will probably have damage but that is what insurance is for I guess. I guess they have been through it before and thinks it is worth it to live at the coast.

I would be so far away from that, I'd be in a different state - yesterday! Even if it didn't blow you away, it could flush you out of your place. You are safe where you are - aren't you?

I am praying too.

Yes we are safe so far at least. A little wind earlier and a few drops of rain. I think the neighboring county has flood warnings tonight.

Thanks for the update and I still hope the wind leaves y'all alone. Some rain ain't bad. I just read where it was down graded some, at least there is some good news.

I am glad you have no troubles to speak of...I so feel for people at times like this. I don't think I would want to live where I had to worry about hurricanes. I prefer to worry about tornadoes!

My heart aches for all the people affected by Harvey, but I'm glad you and John are safe and dry.
