MM;
-Be safe and vigilant.  Our prayers go out to you and all that are affected by this storm.
May God bless you and keep you in his Grace at this terrible time.  Stuff CAN be replaced,
homes can be rebuilt, but your life is precious.

I can't even imagine what is going on down there!  If there is anything I can do or send, please just say the word.  It sucks being helpless.
My thoughts and prayers are with all of you down in that area.  Drop us a line when you can.

Roger,have you talked to Mark on the phone?
Sorry... Yesterday was the last and final day for any and all complaints whatsoever.

I try to avoid temptation unless I can't resist it.

Everyone has a photographic memory.Some just don't have film.

I was able to talk to Mark a few minutes ago. He is safe but had bad damage.I am sure he will update us when things settle down.

everyone down there our prayers are with you.  my wife's sisters and their familys are either in Houston, San Antonio or Austin, so far so good they are on higher ground,  but they don't know about a second vacation home north of Houston, has a small creek on the property, probably a river now.

Made an emergency run to Austin today for some medication for my grandson. From Conroe to Austin was all clear and it's only sprinkling here in Conroe at 6:00 pm

Thoughts and prayers to everyone affected.  I was reading that the creetints already started looting and a few of them were shot.  It's really sad that these scumbags are out praying on the people who are in this disaster.  One thing I'd bet the farm on is if they're caught the Texas justice system will punish them appropriately. 
Nothing is better than a Weatherby, big bore magnum, or a Colt.

Yup, dealt with the looters and con men  here in 04.  They target the old people most. We weren't allowed to post signs saying we shoot looters. We posted we cook looters on the grill. My anti gun neighbors became my best pals!  Stay safe!
