    We could use it in West Texas. It's not very often a hurricane just hunkers in one area and just grinds everything down like this.

    As slow as the thing was moving, it's not that hard to imagine.

    Picture a fairly heavy thunderstorm's rain. Now make it go on for 3 or 4 days straight.

    It's been raining for at least 3 days all over South Alabama with much of Central Alabama seeing outlying bands passing through sporadically until yesterday when they started coming through fairly regularly. I drove from Auburn to Prattville yesterday afternoon and got rained on 6 different times before I made it to Tallassee.

    It has been a terrible year in many ways. Prayers to all who will be affected by this storm.

    I drove into Fairhope to get my dad from his sisters house as the power is out for a while. It looks like it was hit by a hurricane. Tree damage but not much wind damage. By wind damage in mean roof and structure damage not caused by a tree going down. A few tornado paths were obvious. My aunt and uncle had three trees down in the yard. They hit nothing but the ground. Roof was fine.
    My cousin three miles away had two puncture holes in the roof from limbs. He said it was fist size. Pensacola took the north east eye wall so its not good over there I'm sure.

    Testing....1-2-3....can you hear me now?

    Yeah!.....finally got power back today. One of my pecan trees fell over the road and took down the power line ....I think that was Tuesday night? Lots of trees down, and lots of limbs, but we had no house damage. Son lives next door and he lost a few roof shingles- we were very fortunate. Not so for the folks just south of me in Bayou La Batre- lots of flooding and damage down there, and also Dauphin Island. Across the bay in Gulf shores, Orange Beach and Pensacola there was lots of damage.
    Anyway, we have power now and the a/c and water heater are running full speed.

    Good deal! Glad you guys came out relatively unscathed.
    “Historically, freedom is a rare and fragile thing . . . Freedom has cost the blood of millions in obscure places and in historic sites ranging from Gettysburg to the Gulag Archipelago . . .That something that cost so much in human lives should be surrendered piecemeal in exchange for visions and rhetoric seems grotesque. Freedom is not simply the right of intellectuals to circulate their merchandise. It is, above all, the right of ordinary people to find elbow room for themselves and a refuge from the rampaging presumptions of their ‘betters’.” Thomas Sowell

    Pecan trees are bad about going over like that. Must be a shallower root system than a oak or even a pine. Tornadoes seem to like pecan orchards, too. I've seen them knocked over like somebody just walked along pushing every pecan tree they came to over.

    Saw 2 trees that were knocked over due to a combination of soft ground and 35+ wind gusts. Also had a pine down the road a piece get snapped off about 10-15 foot off of the ground but I'm not certain what the story is on that one because it doesn't look like something that the weather we got should have been able to do.

    Gotta niece that just moved to Pensacola from just north of Miami. She said her street had 4 foot of water on it when the storm came through. Her house took no damage but they were some of the fortunate ones.

    Looks like Texas is back on the top of the hit parade. Ya'll got one headed your way next week.

    Glad to hear John. My nephew is off schillingers before you get to three notch. He and his dad have been cutting up a big live oak. It only got the fence.

    I'M still sucking wind as my daughters wedding is next Saturday. I had to pay a $500 retainer for friday night as every wedding venue in south Alabama is wrecked and they are trying to rent it Friday. I want to set up, stage and have rehearsal Friday.
