We figured 50% chance of stress staying, and 110% chance of stress getting on the roads, watching gas stations run out of gas, people piling up, hotels being "taken" and not even counting the money and energy drain in leaving.
Therefore, we are just filling up the tus with fresh water, packing cooler with ice, filling up bath tubs with water-(so there will be fresh water-in case city water gets tainted) putting anything critical in plastic and as high and dry as possible. And sedating the family dog a bit.
In coming winds seem like that will make 80 MPH as we are 45 miles from Galveston-who may see winds of 120+, naturally. Flooding is not presently an issue as there has been mega empty bayous built here for that an empty retention ponds with all leveling graded for run off to those.
Loss of electric is really PROBABLE and I suspect up to seven days without electric. The only other activity I am worried about is tornadic activity. In some respects we will be on the edge of this storm where they spawn easily.
Any other crazy people on line SAY HI!!!

Well stay safe. I guess from the reports we need boats and oars up around here.
