Thank you @Baya78 for making us aware that more help is needed in TX. She mentioned a couple small towns that were severely hit by Harvey yet the news media concentrated on Houston. The towns she mentioned are Rockport and Aransas near Corpus Christi As you probably know there is a great need for help in that whole seaside region between Corpus Christi, Houston and beyond but the media concentrated on Houston probably because it is the largest and most well-known city in the region. I tried to put together a map of the region showing the many names of the small towns in between the two large cities but to do that I had to zoom in close then cut and paste together the different screen prints, I did add the larger view of southeast TX. Oh, the source for the screen prints is Google Maps. I hope this helps give everyone who is not familiar with Texas a better grasp of just how large the area hit is. I know I know, I’ve already told everyone how different each part of Texas is so here’s a view of Southeast Texas. Mother Nature is really ticked off at us, it's bad enough what Harvey did but now she's sending us Irma AND Jose. I don't know about you, but with the cost of everything increasing I'm not even going to think about buying presents for anyone, it'll be all I can do to feed my furmily and myself. How about you? For whatever it's worth, I'm praying for the whole southeast seaside areas that are affected by those hurricanes.

You are welcome, but I wish the media would quit looking at the lucrative end of a story and go back to the beginning of it all, weren't both Rockport and Aransas hit many hours before it reached Houston? Could you write more about what is going on where you are? Just remember that if admin thinks you are asking for donations they will have to delete what you write, ok?
The cost of gas has sky rocketed. The storms in the Caribbean and soon to be in Florida has been pretty awful too...and getting worse. I do know Texas is still in trouble...I'm thinking mother nature is mad at the idiot in Washington who says there is no Global Warming.

The gift of just being together is an old corny idea but I think its something to consider. Make it to Christmas in one piece and just be happy with that. I'm glad you are okay and hoping better days ahead for those in the path of storms.
