You couldn't get a clue during the clue mating season in a field full of horny clues if you smeared your body with clue musk and did the clue mating dance.

This is crazy cool. These are ants. They build living rafts and bridges in order to escape flooding.

Is it going inland or coming up the coast? I haven't read anything about it yet.

It went back down to a cat 4 around 5 am -but they say it'll strengthen again.

Here's the latest from the Nat'l hurricane center. Projection's have it grazing Miami, then possibly hitting the Carolina's

You may need to fill your tub too, Duchess.... Matt has shifted to the west, now expected to cling to the coast as a cat 3

When these bitches come up the coastline my hope is always to remain on the left hand side of it.

I'm not even going to listen to my local weather people. They are all terrorists.

You'll know by watching the trees, to see which way they are bending! hah
Good Luck!

Hurricane --> Tropical Storm Harvey

I'm glad Six isn't in Texas yet and hope his friends, Mock members, and others in Texas are doing okay.

One person is already reported dead and I've seen reports that four others are believe to have died at the hands of Harvey as well.

It seems to me that FEMA and the government learned from Katrina and Sandy; hope so anyway. This is a serious natural disaster with lots of homes and lives on the line. Very sad.

Tropical Storm Harvey has dropped more than 11 trillion gallons of water on Texas, triggering catastrophic, unprecedented flooding in the Houston area. The rains have broken all-time records, exceeding the rainfall totals seen during Tropical Storm Allison in 2001.

There may be no parallel available to any other rainstorm in U.S. history, based on the number of people affected, amount of water involved, and other factors, meteorologists have warned.

Due to its wide geographic scope across America's 4th-largest city, the ensuing flood disaster may rank as one of the most, if not the most, expensive natural disaster in U.S. history.

The Weather Service office in Houston reported just over 2 feet of rain in 24 hours between 7 a.m. Saturday and 7 a.m. Sunday morning, causing August to become the wettest month on record there. Forecast totals call for isolated rainfall amounts of up to 50 inches before Harvey finally releases its grip on the Lone Star state late this week. If this comes to fruition, it would be the greatest rainfall totals from a tropical storm or hurricane in U.S. history.

Have any of you ever been through a flood? I've had a little water in the basement, nothing the shop vac couldn't handle. I have never experienced anything at all like what is going on in Texas.
