Hang in there Rock, it's all gonna be ok. You guys are in a safe spot. My thoughts go out to the less fortunate and the idiots who decided to stay.

Worth, I can't open your links. I don't know if Harvey has gotten to you or your getting drunk.

The same from here in South Carolina. Knowing so many of you good posters from Texas are having to deal with this makes it feel closer to home. Be careful and remember the sun WILL rise again.

If you look at the first pictuer you will see Bastrop in the very center next to the green stuff.
I live 30 miles southeast of Austin.
Wind and rain is what we will get.
They predict around 15 inches but you never know.
One of my life long friends lives in Richwood Texas on the coast next to Freeport.
I just texted him and wished him well.
He is doing fine.

Thanks Worth- I was supposed to travel to Freeport next week- I guess that will be cancelled!

I'm just so glad you aren't on those barrier islands along that eyewall....

Yes, our friends who come stay with us from time to time. I saw the sign to Bastrop on our way here last night.

Been in two tropical storms in Angleton.
It is tiring to say the least.
One I had to drive home with water coming up in the floor boards of the company van from the storm serge.
That one was like 1 mile an hour off or so from a hurricane and I was out in the darn thing.

My parents lost their house in Texas City from Carla in 1961. Nasty, nasty storm. I was born in 1967, and remember several big storms that hit the Texas gulf coast- Allen, Mitch, etc. It's one thing I do not miss about leaving my home in TC!
