    I think we are in the clear where I'm at....just winds up to 55 mph and major rain. We can handle that. Sounds like Houston and Galveston are gonna get the hit of it. My in-laws live about 20 min south of Galveston and had mandatory evacuation and they aren't leaving. Jay is pissed....and worried! We are 4 hours south of Houston....

    Morgan, since Victoria is only 2 hours from Houston, they are gona get stronger winds and the rain, but hopefully that's it!

      Ohmygosh I am so worried. I saw on CNN that it will be really bad
      Even up in Toronto we are watching the updates and hoping that everyone in Texas and in the path are safe and will continue to be safe. "Just Martha", I know I don't know you but from readings posts and stuff it oddly feels like I do! I REALLY hope everything goes well and that your in-laws are really well prepared.

      Please update us often because we worry!!!!

        I'm in Houston and the hurricane is coming this way. We are going to ride out the storm and think we are as ready as can be. We are far away from the shore where I think we will be ok but I am still a bit worried. We also have friends and family coming over from areas around here that were forced to evacuate. Hope all works out ok.

              This is a pretty cool website to keep track of the storm.

                      Hi girlies....nothing is going on here! :) We are supposed to get some rain and more wind later....I think that's about it. Houston and Galveston are gonna get slammed though.

                      Jay's paretns FINALLY decided to leave this morning because Galveston was already flooded and the hurricane was still hundreds of miles away. I am so relieved! This hurricane is gonna be bad.

                      I will keep the Houston girls and Morgan's family in my prayers!
