I was hoping I would wake up this morning and find out the storm had turned and wasn't coming here, but so far it is still on track for Galveston, which means Houston. The sun is shining brightly in Houston right now, with no bad weather expected until late this afternoon. I just added text messaging to my cellphone because I read sometimes a text message will go through when a call won't. Who knows what kind of phone service, electricity, etc. we will have as this storm goes through?! Already Galveston is starting to flood and the pictures of the waves crashing over the Seawall are incredible…..and it's only low tide and the storm is 100 miles out. Another coastal community, Surfside, is already flooding. Amazingly, there are always some people who won't leave. Crazy!
