      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!
      oh, they are right by galveston. I'm going to leave work now so i can call them. I hate hurricanes! I'm a ball of nerves.

        i just talked to mike's dad. his mom evacuated, but her parents stayed behind. so mike's dad stayed with them. their house is very sturdy so only a tornado or flood should create a problem.

        their town is the only in the area that didn't have mandatory evacuation.

        i'm just waiting...

                Jay's nieces junior high school has water in it already.....
                Also, Jay's brother's family lost power at around 7:30 which was way before the rain came....the wind must be crazy.

                Morgan, let us know when you find out something. I will keep them in my prayers tonight...along with all the BDW girls in Houston...well, along with everyone in that area.

                    The news is reporting different stuff.... first, it's a Category 2 when it hits landfall, but then the path is supposed to even reach as far north as DFW with tropical force winds...

                    We just heard downtown Houston is getting 105mph winds and they're expecting a lot of damage to the skyscrapers... then I heard the path was 600 miles wide and the eye is almost 60 miles wide....

                    Frank's family lives in Beaumont and all of them evacuated up here. They stuck it out for Rita, and learned from that experience to get out while they could...

                      I have been watching the news and I hope everyone is alright. I have been thinking about all of you in Texas and praying that you get through this hurricane ok.
