Hurricane Alex

We're doing just fine during this hurricane. Evalyn and I are pretty much treating it as a normal day. A very rainy, often times kind of windy, one though. I dumped the rain gauge from yesterday at 6:40 this morning and it had 1.4 inches of rain. From then until 3:15 pm we got 5 inches of rain!!

Hence the reason our backyard looks like this:

And the street like this:

(Until neighbors went down and cleared debris from storm drain, then back to normal.)

My dad and Aery even drove over to say hi. So that was a nice break from the monotony of just the 2 of us at home.

Will post some picks of Evalyn next when I download my camera photos. These are all off my/our new video camera! (Haven't figured out how to get the videos off it yet.)

Love to everyone out there in sunshine land! We've seen maybe 10 minutes of it total today.

We are preparing for Tropical Storm Alex, probably Hurricane Alex by the time it gets here. Jason is currently in Biloxi, MS for an Inundation GIS Conference and could be sent over to Lake Charles, LA for back-up of the Brownsville WFO. For now I have stocked up on what is needed for Evalyn and myself, yes I had to give in and actually purchase baby food. Jason will let me know if he feels like we should leave and head to San Antonio or Houston area...or somewhere in between..College Station.

We will probably go stay with my parents and sister and her kids. My dad has a generator if we needed it like we did during Dolly 2 years ago. Not to mention the gas grill.

We ask for prayers not necessarily for us, but for the people that don't have everything available to them that we do during the storm. Also pray for Jason that he has peace of mind while working and not to worry about us.
