9:00 p.m….I am moving furniture, cleaning (vacuuming and mopping) and replacing more wood floor tiles. So I will try to make it around to see everybody tomorrow. I went outside earlier and took some beautiful pictures of the sky. I’ll try to post those tomorrow.
Here’s the storm as of 5:15 p.m. Central Time. We are fine. In fact, Steve is outside doing yard work. Gustov is down to a weak Cat 1 storm right now.
Beth called a few minutes ago. She was going over to Brandon and Rachael’s after picking up Ashley (Mark’s daugher). But they saw smoke and followed to see what was going on. They got to a main intersection fairly close to my parents’ house, and found that there was a huge fire at an RV storage facility.
But Mike the Cop was there directing traffic, where they had closed the intersection. He came over and told her what was going on. I asked her if that meant it was smokin’ hot where Mike is, and she said she was going to hang up on me. I just don’t understand. I live to give my kids a hard time (as well as their friends…right, E? ) It just adds such purpose to life.
HERE’S a story on the fire. It’s also not very far from our church.
Here’s where we are in relation to the storm. I put a little smiley face over Galveston Bay. We are roughly 6 miles west of Galveston Bay (this was taken at 11:45 a.m. Central time):
It is cloudy, but it’s not raining. And we are getting some gentle wind gusts right now.
