    Prayers for everyone in the wake of HH! Thank goodness HB and Delilah and Soda's parents are safe! It all sounds horrific!

    Has anyone heard from East Texas Girl?

    She posted yesterday. She said she was ok.

    Brothers for life. RIP Glenn

    I'm not sure I believe in fate, but I know that crossing paths with Glenn Lewis Frey in 1970 changed my life forever, and it eventually had an impact on the lives of millions of other people all over the planet. It will be very strange going forward in a world without him in it. But, I will be grateful, every day, that he was in my life. Rest in peace, my brother.

    Glad to hear everyone in TX is safe! Praying that you all, as well as those from Louisiana, don't get more rain and stay safe and sound. The pictures on the news of the elderly in nursing homes sitting in their recliners with water up to their wastes and their pet cats perched on top of boxes to stay dry are heartbreaking!

    Does anyone by chance live in or near Fannette, Port Arthur, or Beaumont? My father-in-law lives and works in those areas and we are unable to get in touch with him. Just wondering if he's okay and how those areas have been holding up. Any info would be greatly appreciated. TIA!

    Thank you, VG. And thanks to the Cajun Navy, those nursing home patients are safe. We are so appreciative of the help and support we are getting from other states.

    Unfortunately, there's lots of flooding in Beaumont and Port Arthur and evacuations are taking place. We have friends and relatives there. I will PM you.

    Take it to the limit, one more time.

    Thanks for the reply Delilah! Unfortunately, you confirmed my fears. I had a feeling those cities/town were a mess. I'll see if I can get a hold of my MIL in Schulenberg and hopefully her cell is back on.

    I am so glad to hear TX is getting help from other states. They could sure use it!

    Please stay safe!

    My brother and family live in Houston, and thankfully all are fine. I am from the Beaumont area originally, and hate to see the devastation. Up here we only got some torrential rain briefly and some street flooding.
    Village Girl and Delilah, I hope all your people are safe!

    Saw this on the Weather Channel this morning. It's the FEMA press conference about Harvey and has lots of good information, especially about filing flood insurance and FEMA claims. It doesn't start for a while, so just fast-forward until it does.

    Stay safe, Texas friends!
