Hurricane Harvey
« on: August 25, 2017, 09:20:41 am »
Hurricane Harvey is destined to cause much misery in Texas within the next couple of days and then much rain/water and possible tornados across Louisiana, Mississippi, etc. next week.

Texas Ranger is probably in full "battle gear" mode with storm prep and/or possible evacuation.

The great majority of the countries oil refineries as well as offshore production, etc. will be affected by this massive storm, so we may expect to see fuel shortages as well as price spikes.

Yup, putting everything in the office, that I can, on higher ground.  House should not be affected, but who knows what rains we will get.  Logging will come to an end down here for weeks.  Mill closures should not close, but again, who knows.  Our area will probably only see a rain event, although a heavy one, we should fair well enough, generator fuel, freezer full, swamp water on hand. 

Pray for the coastal areas, mandatory evacuation for the entire Texas coast.

Stay tuned.

That must be what has been sucking nice cool, dry air down from the north. It's been a relief but it will probably have a high price tag.

The forecast is now showing it stalling, backing back into the Gulf, and then whacking Louisiana.   :P

It saw your oversized collection of Logrites and decided that neighborhood is too rough. Now it's regrouping to make a run at fishfighter's cabin.

Now it's regrouping to make a run at fishfighter's cabin. 
I have been concerned about fishfighter (Paul) for several days.  He has not logged on since the 18th nor posted since the 12th.  I called the two phone numbers that I have this morning and left a message on each.  I am hoping that he will soon call me back.

That's troubling, Magicman. He pushes himself in some pretty extreme conditions, too. Always makes me nervous when there's a gap in his posts for his cabin build and "Whatcha Sawin'". Maybe family convinced him to take a cool, dry vacation.

I just heard from Paul and he is OK.  He has had a death in his immediate family (Son) that has required and occupied his time but he appreciates us being concerned about him.  PatD and I met this young son (37) when we visited with fishfighter earlier this year.

My prayer is for Paul and his family as they deal with this loss.

Thanks for the bittersweet update, Magicman. That's very hard.


Jeez I can't even imagine what that would feel like or how to handle it!

Thanks for the update on Paul.  His absence from the forum lately was worrying me.  I'm glad he's ok, but sorry to hear about the loss of his son.

Harvey is now covering about 25% of Texas.

Harvey is HUGE. I'm 200 miles from the coast and over in louisiana. Heavy overcast and intermittent bands of showers. Good day to work in the shop..

It is impossible to imagine that much rainfall with nowhere to go.  We are only forecast to get about 8" toward the middle of next week.

We've gotten about 6 inches in the last 2 days and everything is flooded. Every ditch is full and our creek is running like a race horse. I had to go move 4 pigs to another pen yesterday as the one they were had no dry ground. I guess I'd better go check on them and make sure they aren't swimming. Can't even imagine what's happening in TX.
