The hurricane is tracking closer to my side of Houston. Gonna get lots of rain if nothing more.

@edgarblythe,
Generally, These things veer off with this long a lead time. Of course, that seems to apply to areas other than Houston.

Current tracking makes it seem we will get some wind and heavy rain, but the brunt of it will be to our west.

The power company trims the trees periodically so they won't damage the power lines and poles. And yet the trees knock them down anyway.

They say the storm will pass through Tomball. Our town is far enough from the coast that the winds may diminish somewhat. I worry most about tornadoes.

Calm before the storm. They said on TV we may get 80 inches of rain. If I drown, blub blub blub

@Ragman,
I don't know how 80 got in. But it's going to be a lot.

@Mame,
Not yet. The hurricane hasn't made landfall yet.

Had a text from Xfinity advising service is very likely going to be disrupted.

The bad stuff will be going through this morning and all day tomorrow. Highest expected wind for me about 72 mph. This may be my last post for a while.

@edgarblythe,
Yep. When I lived in Miami at a very young age, we caught the edge of Hurricane Donna. Direct damage wasn't bad, but the power was off for a week or more. My job was to find an ice dispenser, since we had no electricity for the air conditioner. I failed, miserably.

@roger,
How would they make ice if there was no electricity?

It's on land and blowing. Electric comes and goes. Trying to get a pot of coffee before it stops completely. Dog says I ain't going out to pee and I don't blame him.

Wishing you the best. Sending sandbags along too.

BTW, I thought you got a new dog, right? Name? I hope I didn’t disrespect Rockie?
