    If you've got Direct TV, Channel 361 has live storm coverage from KHOU Channel 11 in Houston.

    They're up to the minute and not losing signal like FOX is..

    Boy the news crews are like vultures, they can't wait to get
    on Galveston. Hopefully all the predictions of "imminent death"
    were just that.
    May the FORCE be with you!

    Humble, Texas


    Humble is a city in Harris County, Texas within the Houston–Sugar Land–Baytown metropolitan area.

    The proper pronunciation of the city is "umble" (the "H" being silent), as the city's founder (see below) pronounced his last name in that manner. As of the 2000 census, the city population was 14,579. The city shares a zip code with the small Houston neighborhood of Bordersville, although people who live in Bordersville still have Humble addresses.

    Petroleum has been the basis of Humble's economy since its beginning. Loch Energy is headquartered in Humble; the city was the namesake for Humble Oil and Refining Company, which later merged with the Exxon corporation.

    The city got its name from one of the original founders/settlers, a successful wildcatter originally from England named Pleasant Smith "Plez" Humble, who opened the first post office in his home and later served as justice of the peace.

    Thank God this sucker seems to have come ashore gentle enough that the casualties are going to be MUCH less than they could have been. :)

    Property damage is gonna be horrific but the life and limb factor seems to have been minimized summat.

    Whew! Our power just came back on...Yay! :D

    It went out around 7:30am central time, came on around 1:30.

    We had more of our big silver maple come crashing down on the house
    but it looks like it just busted some of the gutter. Came too close to hitting
    a few windows. That tree is gonna have to go I think. The sun is
    just staring to come out again.

    Now we have to take all the food out of the ice chests and get it back
    into the freezers. :D
    May the FORCE be with you!

    They were predicting high winds and 2+ inches of rain here. Didn't get either of them. Lived here for going on 20 yrs and as far as power outages go it has never been out more than maybe 15 minutes. Usually when the power goes out around here by the time you can say "Crap,the powers out" it's back on.
    The 21st century. The age of Smart phones and Stupid people.

    It is said that branches draw their life from the vine. Each is separate yet all are one as they share one life giving stem . The Bible tells us we are called to a similar union in life, our lives with the life of God. We are incorporated into him; made sharers in his life. Apart from this union we can do nothing.
