Thankfully the storm seems to be loosing moisture as well as momentum/wind as it moves away from the Gulf.  We should be OK.

The storm's eye has crossed into Mississippi, but thankfully about 150 miles North of us and we have gotten very little wind or rain.  Mostly just an on and off "get you wet" drizzle.  The threat of tornados in it's path will continue as the storm continues to move NE.

Edge came into Memphis about 11:30 this morning.  Spawned eight or nine tornado warnings for the are 3:10 p.m. looks like the eye is about on top of Memphis.  Keep loosing Direct TV because of the heavy down pores.  Yep prayers for all along the coast and Houston.  Have two cousins Northwest area of Houston.  They are okay and dry.

Harvey passed right over me around mid-nite. Lots of water, not much wind. So far, I have found no damage other than lots of water ran through my saw shed.

Got back home last night from helping the Cajun Navy. At one point we "couldn't get there from here" as the old saying goes. Almost every road from Houston to the South, East or West was closed yesterday. It looks better today on the road closure map. going to be a long recovery like Katrina was. We only got a couple inches up here although at one point they were predicting 12". I didn't see a lot of wind damage mostly flooding. We were stationed about 10 miles from the plant that exploded. I think most of the wind damage was along the coast.

Glad to hear from you!

Send some of that sunshine. 6 inches overnight with some deluges; slow, cold, steady rain all day and at about 2 inches since I emptied the rain gauge this morning.

   The remains of Harvey got here today, wet and breezy but nothing like the Gulf area. The fuel price increase traveled faster and got here a few days ago.

Hurricane Irma will cause some/much distraction from the devastation that Harvey caused.  There can be very little services restoration done until the water recedes so the evacuees from the Houston area are still in a "world of hurt".  Most churches and other organizations are stepping up and providing assistance but this recovery will be a very slow process.
