I hope that The Oncoming Storm and Mel got out - It's 10 am here in Houston and Galveston is flooding. The hurricane is still some 16 hours out yet, and water is coming into the city through the storm drains - the kids are telling the tv reporters that they are seeing fish coming up through the drains. I've been watching the last couple of hours - almost no winds, and not a drop of rain, but Galvestion is already taking damage.
People who have been there though thick and thin, who have chosen time and again not to evac, are getting out.
I'm not in one of the mandatory evac zones, even when Carla, and Alicia came through we didn't flood, but my folks are I are watching it all like the proverbial hawk.
I'll try and post if things get exciting.
