Having evacuated several times of the past years, this one, here in Texas City, I did like someone else posted. Turned on TV and watched.

I hope and pray that everyone remains safe.

Well that was fun.....

No damage to the house and we were lucky not to lose power.
Just a ton to clean up in the yard.
So glad I stored the RV in my bay at work.
Hope everybody in Irene's path is ok.

Wow ... there was a LOT more destruction and water damage in our town just below us. We live up on a hill, and all roads leading to us were, or are still covered with downed trees.

I ventured out today for a bit and also found a video that someone in town made ... truely destructive water damage to residents that just recovered from, or are still rebuilding from the heavy flooding damage in the spring.

The video and more info is in my latest blog post Our Hurricane Irene Damage | Our RV Journey

3000 miles away - not a problem. Next earthquake might be, but an earthquake every 20 years or so sure beats hurricanes two or three times a year.

We ived in Tidewater VA for three years. That was enough to make the east Coast a "visit but don't stay" place and we've only visited once since we went back to Washington in 1974! There's only been one significant 'quake in this area since!
