Casa Paloma said:Just got back from town. Traffic in our small town is horrific. Lines at the gas stations that have gas. Parking lots are full. Went in Walmart to get a couple of items and they were out of beer and toilet paper. This is Texas - people have to get the necessities. Plenty of water and food staples but out of beer and toilet paper(?). Guess I'll have to break out the old Sears and Roebuck catalogs and magazines and get the still working again.

Casa Paloma said:The rain finally started. Wind gusts of about 50 mph now, but only gusts. Had a couple of those little lawn windmills anchored in the yard. Wind took them out of their anchorage. Old tent in back still standing. Wish I had a camera - mother deer and a couple of babies standing under the tent grazing on old left-over hay and spilled grain. Power went out for about 15 minutes, but back on before I could get the generator started. Dogs going crazy running around the yard playing in the rain - been a long time since they have seen any around here. I'm sure they will want to come back inside and climb on the couch when they get tired. Wife is going to love that. The worse hasn't hit up here yet so if it remains like it is now, will be going out to check cattle and fences later today. Rain sure looks good, however. Noticed on the news that the poor folks in Houston are already starting to complain - "No one done come to get me." I guess Jessie Jackson and Al Sharpton will be down there sympathize with them because they are too stupid to find the evacuation points for the buses.
