Re: Noreen

Yep, I'm here.....everything we can do has been done, so now we are playing  
the waiting game.  Still not sure about the final path of the storm, but  they 
say either way as large as the storm is we would get the hurricane force  
winds here 75-100 mph.  Only difference is that they would be coming from  the NE 
instead of the S, with the rotation.  If by chance the storm does  head into 
LA. instead of Tx. we would still get Tropical storm winds 50-75  mph.  Also 
they are saying there is a strong possibility of it stalling out  over us due 
to a high north of Tx. which means flooding rains.  Experienced  that here in 
Houston with trop. storm Allison that dumped 45 inches of rain in a  couple 
days.....no fun.  So we shall see.  
Oddly people are pretty much calm, playing the waiting game.  Nothing  is 
open, nobody is moving around, it's a Shelter in place set up for the  next few 
days, which means nothing is open, everyone is to stay in place,  curfews set 
up, etc.  Nobody is allowed to evacuate anymore, if they  haven't gotten out, 
it's too late now.  Funny, it's eerily quiet.....no  birds in site, nothing. 
Only differnce is my "zoo" is very uneasy, very  nervous.  Obviously they feel 
it.  My cat, Ms. Kitty that never goes  outside, has been trying all day to go 
out.  Puppy is so high strung, I  keep thinking she's going to have a nervous 
breakdown.   Power  keeps going in and out, cell phone networks are clogged 
most of the time, so  very difficult to get a call through.  So.....we just sit 
and wait.   Very windy, but no rain yet. They say power once it goes, might be 
out for  a week minimum. I'm enjoying catching up on the Chat list.  Thanks 
for all  the laughs ya'll, appreciate it...great to have something funny to 
think  about.  Ya'll are a great bunch.  Thanks for the thoughts and prayers  
too.  Appreciate it.

Anyone  heard from Noreen since yesterday afternoon? Just wanting to see if 
they are  all battened down. Hope you are well Noreen!
