+1 Dale . My nephew is down there , and his in-laws are in Virginia , so I hope he went on vacation for a while !! In spite of the relative connections , don't wish that action on anybody . I'm 25 miles from Lake Ontario , and we had an all time wet , late winter /spring .Never did/could go fishing up there . Lake level is still unmanageable on the high side and there are some really nice/pricey places going to hell still . Rains , although spotty , are still affecting them . A bad winter is going to be awful .... still , prayers are with the Lone Star State !!

I am so sorry to hear of the misery in TX. The silver lining in this dark cloud will be the outpouring of goodwill and support from the rest of the US sending power crews from all over the country to repair downed power lines. When we were hit by Hurricane Matthew last year we had crews from all over the country pitching in to get us up and running. A crew from TX repaired the lines behind our house. Georgia Power will be on its way to TX if it hasn't already departed. Gil

We've been lucky in Central TX, slow steady rain so far. It has a chance to run off, the folks down river might not be so lucky. They are getting deluge type rain and our run off. plus they got the hurricane. 4 1/2" yesterday.

Be safe my friend, hope your home is in good shape. My daughter Vanessa was born in the Darnell Army Hospital, Ft Hood Texas, when I was stationed there. We use to get a lot of rain from time to time, a real mess at times. Texas people can handle anything, however that does not mean they should have too.
