Sorry I have not checked this site in quite a while. We live in the center of Texas, at least 200 miles north of where the hurricane stopped and received only moderate NE wind for a few days and almost no rain. I watched the rain bands on the radar come about 50 miles south of us and loop on around. Normally a tropical storm that comes in where Harvey did brings us good rain and does little harm along the coast because it moves quickly. This time a front stalled out about where we are and kept Harvey in the same flooded areas for days.

People along the coast really took a hit. There are several organizations in my little town collecting and hauling supplies. The organizers are working with churches in the hard-hit areas. They post on Facebook a list of what's requested by the churches. People are bringing in those supplies or donating money to buy them. Several trailer loads are going south every day. They plan to continue as long as there's a need and people keep donating.

Now we have folks in Florida needing big help. Ella, it looks like Hurricane Irma is headed right at you. I hope and pray you are in a safe place. When you can, let us know how you are.

Is everyone else in those areas okay? Arlene, Greene, Danita? I know we have others in the areas, but I don't know where everyone lives.
