Thanks. I'm surprised too. Actually I'm very impressed with the utility companies through this storm. Flooding is at a point never seen before but practically no widespread power or water outages. I spent over $1000 on generator and supplies and never needed any of it (so far... its not over yet). Death toll only at 5 last time I checked. Those statistics are amazing, given the statewide destruction. All in all, I'm a happy camper. I'll just sit tight until the water recedes and I can get out. 


I called a dear old friend last evening who lives in Houston after watching ABC nightly news as it looked like the entire city was under water. He's fine, he lives in the Montrose neighborhood which he says never floods. He can't get out very far, but has power, water, internet, etc., so he's content to sit it out. I asked why they didn't evacuate the city and he had a pretty good answer - how do you evacuate 6.6 million people?

The city gov intentionally kept the forcast low keyed because of what happened during Hurricane Rita. The Media told everyone to get out and the interstates got clogged up so bad no one was able to move and cars ran out of gas sitting in traffic. Then when the flooding came, people lost their vehicles and lives. So far there are only 5 reported deaths due to Harvey and practically no vehicles submerged on the interstate highways that are flooded. Pretty good statistics. I may not support the media deception but it definately saved lives and property

That was it, Hurricane Rita - my friend told me of a previous hurricane where people were told to evacuate and it was a nightmare. He had a friend who spent 14 hours on a freeway trying to get out and then said to hell with it, turned around & was back home in 1/2 hour.
