I have spent several days now preparing for this big boy! Just today, I worked taking care of the loose ends at work then, I fought through the grocery store to find water and non-perishable foods to take along with me to wherever I could find to go.
It seems all of the hotels are booked all the way up into Austin, TX. as of yesterday.
I am the most prepared person on the planet for a hurricane, or at least in the top ten. I was pretty alarmed considering what happened to my family during hurricane Katrina three years ago in New Orleans and South Mississippi. Well like all unpredictable things; after the food, the gas, a generator, a portable A.C. several hundred dollars later this storm is turning and now heading toward Galveston or Houston.
I am relieved because although I know here in Corpus we'll still get high winds, lots of rain but it will be great not to get this storm head-on. (Sorry to my Texas neighbors, I'm not wishing harm to any of you.)
Maybe I over prepared, what are other south Texas residence doing to prepare? FYI, I have enough to go around for anyone who didn't prepare enough.
Wishing the best possible outcome for all of us here along the coast!
