I have no intention of going anywhere. Y'all are going to have to send Geraldo Rivera to get me out of here!

That alone would send me running for my life, long before a hurricane was imminent, ROFLOL!

There is nothing to worry for most. It's only Cat. 1, if at all.

I am sure due to the rain and wind, it might cause accidents, but other than that, it won't be a state or even a local disaster. Just some wind and lots of rain in some areas.

Update!!

Hurricane has been upgraded to a 2. Just heard from my husband. They have moved to a "more stable" home for now. He said if they could, they'd be heading out now. They can't because the power is out most everywhere and they can't find gas.

He's in good spirits and said not to worry, there's a bunch of pastors there together and they'll be fine.

It's expected to hit Brownsville directly by midday.

Still praying for him and the others.

I have been thru several cat 2 storms or worse. It's odd the houses we evactuated to got more damage than our mobile home. I am not looking forward to this season. A friend of mine who watched our animals during storms moved out of state last month. We are still unsure where the animals will go.

I'm right here praying for all those folks too.

I'm glad he is doing better PM. That should help you a little. He'll be home before you know it and you will be able to hold him tightly in your arms.

PM -- I'm so glad that they are safe. You must be so relieved!

Have you any updates from this morning?


Hi BB! I remember you! I only recently got back on the boards. I'm in the S-SE corner, more or less; a quick trip to the beach!

Dang it is HOT down here this year!!

BH, were are you located? I'm sorry if you mentioned this earlier and I missed it.

I'm not looking forward to this Hurricane Season either. Too many indicators point to perfect conditions for Hurricanes. And I *SO* know what you mean about evaccing the animals. I have an "elderly" horse that has to be evacced every time we do. I'd rather move him up to North Houston than keep him in a trailer for the 27 hours it took us to go from Houston to Dallas for the Rita Evac (a normally 5-hour trip). On that particular trip, our thermostat registered 113-degrees! So many animals died during that exodus -- horses in trailers, dogs, cats, etc. Not to mention the tragic and preventable loss of human life.

I've thought about it a lot recently, and I'm far enough inland (20-ish miles) that it would take a serious threat to induce me to go through THAT again!

I hope all that live in Houston are well and not to much damage done to there homes.

I live to far north for anything. We have had some heavy rain from Dolly today. And a small tornado hit down for a moment. Other then that right now the sun is trying to come out.

Thanks Still, he called this morning and they are leaving at noon to come home. Yay! He said there's a lot of water and stuff blown down but it's not as bad as they thought it would be.

Thanks everyone for your support, and now I say, "Goodbye Dolly".

I am in FL. We live far enough inland that storm surge is not a concern. The only reason for us to evac is because we live in a mobile home.

It's sad to see the homeless animals roaming around after a storm. So many people just let them out to fend for themselves and hope they come back after the storm.

During most storms I am working right up to the curfew. So we can't go far from home. I have yet to sit in traffic waiting to leave town.

That's good to hear. Now switching to prayer for safe travel over what is sure to be crowded roads.
