For those affected by Harvey.  I was part of a teleconference today with FEMA, and the AF rep said that this is going to be a slow process, but help is already pouring in.  I don't remember how many semi's (with food & water) are heading into the TX & LA area, but it's a good amount.  The AF has several aircraft on alert, and a mobile hospital from San Antonio has been moved as well to the Houston area. The PJs are already there, and are rescuing people. 

I went through Hurricane Andrew, and it sucked for a while.  But, we survived, and we were able rebuilt.  Don't loose the faith, and stray strong.  Our prayers to you guys. Be safe!

My hat's off to the Governor for having the guts to give that order.  That's the way it should be unfortunately there's very few politicians that have the fortitude to do what's right, if there were more like the Texas Governor this country would be A LOT better off.

We feared the worst - had to evacuate for five days. Came back to find a waterline on the slab 2 inches below floor level. We are blessed - no water in the house. 641 houses nearby took on water. First night of Harvey (Friday), a tornado tore through about 1/4 mile from our house. We evacuated early Monday morning as the water started to rise. Lucky indeed, however, I attribute our good fortune of being spared to much prayer.

Thanks for the well wishes guys. I feel lucky indeed. Only pisser is I got a deep splinter in my left hand picking up some old rotted wood expansion joints from the driveway that had floated up. Went to an urgent care and some butcher doctor tore up my hand (and ruptured a capillary), causing uncontrollable bleeding. Had to head to an ER to get it sewn shut to stop the bleeding. It's still messed up - over a stupid splinter that's still in there. Found out later that this "doctor" went to med school in Nigeria; figures.
