Our local weather showed it going in Texas and giving rain where there has been a drought but, our local weather is very seldow right Didn't know any of Texas was in a drought. Thought ya'll had got plently rain lately. Shadow, you might should just bring that Chevelle on over here and leave it for awhile :approve: :laugh:
Chelse, we need the rain bad. Real dry where I'm at. Only got one cutting on the hay this year. You want the chevelle, your going to have to come get it :laugh: :laugh: I'll try to post a couple pictures of it when things settle down.
Butch, I'll find out if the trailer stayed afloat in about a week and a half. RV park owners said it was still standing and the only issue might be if there were any leaks it might have caused some internal damage. Hopefully, no leaks cause it is only a year old. We should be there on the 22nd of this month. take care
I know they are pointing this thing into the Aransas Pass and Rockport area just north of Corpus Christi, but my favorite computer model is still pointing to landfall between Matagorda Bay and Galveston Bay. Maybe a little south of Freeport.
If that is the case, you guys and gals in El Campo and Wharton could get some stinging rain.
No matter where it goes in, it will turn back to the northeast and run up the country that way. All of us will get some rain when it does that.
Power is finally back on at our home as of Monday evening. We lost power the afternoon Gustav hit. Baton Rouge took a severe lashing from the hurricane but thankfully only a handful of lives were lost due to falling trees on homes. I am personally very proud of the majority of the people in our state who prepared and planned ahead to be less of a burden on the taxpayers. We had all of our water, tarps, gas and other supplies so we were able to stay off of the roads and let the emergency personnel do their thing. Thanks to all of the volunteers who assisted us in this storm. Good luck and God bless you all during Ike.
