    Harvey is here to visit..... Wind at 30 mph no big deal...... But the rain, anywhere from six to ten inches here in the flat land is a big deal...... And the tornado warning sirens have already gone off twice..... Pumped the pool and pond down so they don't overflow..... Going to eat supper and go to bed...... And hope that I don't wake up with Sarah beating on me telling me the sirens are going off. .... Lol Jimmy

    I always worry about the power going off. Keep telling myself to get a marine grade battery to run an aerator, or a small generator, but haven't done it.

    Glad you are surviving it is heading here, but won't be real bad, just rain.

    Bad part about this one is what is left of the eye is going about 50 miles to the east of us so we are on the west side and we are going to get the majority of the rain and other things

    The bad part about our situation is we had a heavy rain event two days ago and all the rivers are already at flood stage and we are so flat when the rivers are full then the thousands of creeks back up that is when we get bad flooding

    Every so often Ma Nature taps us on the shoulder to remind us who is really running the show.

    Harvey was/is an interesting system, that's for sure. This is one that I won't forget, just like Katrina. Certainly not as many killed, but so much damage that they'll have to recover from. So many people lost everything. If I lived down there, I would be in shock. Wouldn't know what to do. I'd probably move away from the Gulf. Wouldn't want to ever go through that again, let alone once.


    I see they're closely monitoring Hurricane Irma now. The islands look like they're gonna get hit, like they often do. We'll see what kind of impact it has on Florida late next week. Hopefully it won't be anything like Harvey.

    Wouldn't be the first time the Media exaggerates!
    I remember the footage on an earthquake in Italy, the Media actually used images from a different earthquake happened decades before!

    We are going to Houston tomorrow to help out. From what I understand our group will be removing moldy drywall from houses that were flooded.

    The first day was pretty interesting. We helped remove belongings in a house that was flooded 2 months ago. We made a giant pile of garbage in front of the house and another large pile of good stuff we were able to salvage for the homeowner. She was looking at things as we took them out. The group cleaning the house was a total of 25 people. We are staying at a church with 40 people sleeping on cots in one big room. From what I understand there are still 1000s of houses that are still flood damaged here that need cleanup.
