Hurricane Harvey is Still Alive and Well
August 29, 2017 7:04pm CST
Since my daughter was in Houston when this hurricane hit, I have been watching it pretty closely! She's still there, waiting for the water to recede so she can get to the airport, IF her flight isn't cancelled yet again. She is missing days of work and getting frustrated, but there's nothing to be done about it. Harvey is slowly moving on, leaving devastation in it's trail. Now it's on to Louisiana and from the maps I have seen, it will cause bad weather deep into the interior of the US. I have never experienced a hurricane or even a tornado, but I have been through blizzards and hailstorms and that's enough for me!

@peavey most people leave preparations for the last minute because there are usually some years when the season ends without a storm. Trees near to the house are usually trimmed. You store water, stock up on canned food, batteries, candles, be sure prescriptions are filled, check roofs etc.

Sorry to hear that your daughter is there. I would worry a lot I know. I was in a hurricane once when I was about 5 in Florida. We spent the night at a courthouse shelter. Though I lived in Texas growing up, I was only in two tornado warnings, no tornado.

I have been in many hurricanes in my life starting when I was about 5 years old. We had to evacuate as we lived on a river in New Jersey. We stayed at my aunt and uncles for about a week. After that I have been in many hurricanes and the last one was last year although we did evacuate for 5 days, all the power went out and all the food in our freezer and refrigerator went bad. We had to through it all out. I was in some a lot worse than that one to along with blizzards. I am use to disasters.
