Just had a look, seems like Corpus Christi area is getting brunt of it.  Best wishes to everyone in the great state of Texas. Hope Ennis, Jen and any other Texan forum users are either well away from the area or hunkered down safely!

Glad you are far away! Here in NC if a hurricane hits the coast, we get it in the middle of the state sometimes too.

Yeah it is storming here now, but I am a bit concerned for anyone more south....was jen from Austin or Houston?  I do know one thing if any of our regulars needed a safe place to crash for a few nights a bit further away from my place is open. -_- With the stress of a storm like this last thing you need to worry about is having safe food and living environment with this disease.

I've always worried about having to go to a shelter.

I'm fine in Austin. Lots of rain. A bit of wind..... Although for us, most of the more severe weather is coming overnight tonight.  They are predicting 5-20 inches of rain here. If it's 20inches, probably we'll see flooding.  If it's only 5 inches, yay for the extra rain.  

They are predicting 27-30 inches of rain in Houston.  If you have ever been there, you know that Houston holds on to rain like a wet sponge.  Flooding will be a huge problem there. 

South of us, 200,000 people have lost power. And they are predicting 30 inches of rain there too.  I think the worst is yet to come to be honest for most people. This crazy storm is going to keep raining on us until Wednesday!

Thanks for asking! Keep praying for those who stayed south and didn't evacuate.

As a Floridian, I know all too well what it's like under the guns of 'canes. Everyone be smart & stay safe. No walking through water as there may be power lines down. And then again, there can be lots of other things lurking in those flooded areas. 

Positive thoughts with all those affected by the storm. The final effects have yet to be felt and you have a lot of days ahead of you yet before it's over. Seriously hoping there is no loss of life. 

Keep your chins up!

That is so sweet of you, Ennis!  ?

We have to worry about Earthquakes.  Hopefully, we can unbury the Camping Gear and Earthquake supplies from the corner of our garage!

Haven't checked the news yet this morning but this storm have been a devestating one. Hope the rain stops soon and that loss of life is minimal. Please stay safe all.

The pictures have been shocking. I hope that help is forthcoming to those who need to rebuild.

I agree. So much suffering for the people trapped and I can't imagine the worry of the folks that evacuated about what they wil see when they return.  Boats and helicopters are the only way to rescue at this point.
