Praying for safety and that the damage is not bad. I'm sorry you're going through this.

In Houston, we're prepping for high winds and plenty of water.

Thanks, Katie. Looks like we'll miss the high winds, but expecting lots and lots of rain. Days of rain.  :crossedfingers our trees stay rooted.

We still have power and the streets are not flooded yet. My house back up to a major bayou that often leaves its banks in these conditions but it's still too dark to see if that's going on right now. Another bayou closer to my SIL's house has been reported out of its banks. She's in a newer neighborhood that's built high to account for floods, so I don't expect her to have a problem. My MIL is staying with her, because we do expect my MIL's neighborhood to flood. That's where I grew up. It always floods.

Thanks for checking in, Vonna. Pons, you okay? Any of our lurkers in Texas? We're thinking of you, too--feel free to check in. We'd love to throw a towel around you and give you a hug.

Thinking of you, Vonna and everyone in the Harvery's path, and watching the news. Category 4. Yikes!

PS  There seems to be a little confusion. I am Pons (Laurel) and I live in California.  :star2

 :love4 Thanks, everyone! So far, so good in my neighborhood. We've had power all day, and though there have been tornadoes in all the smaller towns around us, none have hit Houston proper. Even in all the news we've heard about these tornadoes, there has been no loss of lives reported.  :crossedfingers

Prayers for your family and you, Vonna. Harvey is a slow moving storm now. Did your bayou flood?

Hi Helen! Yes, but not until after dark so I can't tell how high it is. Our yard and street are flooded, but that's not unusual in heavy rain. The worst seems to have passed now but our current  flash flood warning doesn't expire for three more hours.
