Harvey

Post by KINGLONESTAR » Sat Aug 26, 2017 8:20 am

To anyone else out there who has already been, is being, or will be affected by Harvey, hunker down and stay safe, my friends. We're in for a rough couple of days.

All good so far here in Cypress.

Be safe! If you have not had to evacuate, and the wind or flood danger is not too high where you are, you probably will have a good opportunity to do a major tarp test!

Good luck! If someone knocks on your door and tells you to evacuate it's time to bail. Get yourself a bug out bag in order. Scary to only have a few minutes to decide what you can lose.

Keep Ryan and Jeanette Ford in your prayers, they live(d) in Rockport which was one of the places hardest hit. They evac'd out to UncleMike's, but no word yet on how their property might have fared.

From our conversations, they are thankful that they, their family members, and critters are safe but still quite concerned about property. Three areas that have their focus are (1) Their home, (2) Ryan's parent's home, and (3) the storage facility where they keep a good bit of their Kayak fleet, the inventory for their business.

So far, no word on (1). From pictures and videos there appears to be significant damage to (2)and (3). It may still be several days until they can return to assess damage, weeks before full utility service, and no speculation on repair to homes or business.

They are great folks with amazing attitudes yet this is a real blow. I join with Scuba in asking folks to keep them both in your prayers.

At this point pretty much any spot that gets the worst of the rain is going to flood. So far my neighborhood (Clay and Barker Cypress) has been lucky and is dry enough. If someone needs a dog-friendly place to crash let me know.

There was a mandatory evacuation order today that I think includes Sarge's place.

Nope.

Was voluntary and when I looked at the map, my place was on an island inside the evac zone. That's how it shook out last year---I spent a week on an island in a tropical climate. I might do the same thing again.

I'm saving a frikkin fortune on airfare.

I thought I saw the voluntary change to mandatory. It may well be I misunderstood. The map I saw was very hard to read; if there was an island for your subdivision I don't think I could have seen it. Stay dry.

I'm trying to catch a flight tomorrow. Or Tuesday. Or Wednesday. Or maybe even Thursday. Even if they fly I'm not sure I can get my dogs to the kennel and myself to IAH.

Yah; its mandatory now.

Last year during the Tax Day flood we were high and dry with the Brazos at 55'-0", but we couldn't get out of the subdivision after it got to about 50'-0. Up until about three hours ago, the forecast crest was 55'-6", something we figured we could tough out. But now the latest estimate for the river is a crest at 59'-0" and that puts the front stoop underwater. We're evacuating tomorrow before the subdivision is closed by water (right now, the river is at 35'-0" so we've got some time).

We're looking at options for places to stay.

In a pinch you can come here. It is small and it will be cramped but so far it is dry. And dog friendly.
Getting here might be tough.

Yah, we're headed to Wimberly---if I can get from here to 290 past Prarie View. 99 is closed at Clay and 290 is closed at Prarie View.
