Thursday... pre-Hurricane Harvey
It's Thursday evening here in Texas and the news today is all about Hurricane Harvey in the Gulf. It seems that it has suddenly gone from a tropical storm to a hurricane with the potential of causing havoc due to the possibility of it hanging around over the area for a few days.
I just spoke to my daughter in the hill country and she said that people are acting crazy and buying out the grocery stores - almost all the bottled water was gone when she stopped by on her way home from work.
Their area does have flooding problems so there is cause for some concern. Lots of road closures due to flooding is an issue. We are a bit worried as not only is there a problem for the next few days, but we had all planned to go down next week for our grandson's Air Force Basics Graduation in San Antonio. I really hope the weather stations are exaggerating and giving worse case scenarios that won't come true.
But since Harvey is supposed to reach landfall this evening (it's Friday morning here now), I guess we will know soon enough. I truly hope that those on the coast have evacuated, but knowing the South that I grew up in, many will not.
Please keep all this area in your thoughts and prayers...
