The northwest edge of eyewall is moving over us. Everything good including power. This was from about an hour and a half ago. The eye is no longer defined with clear area but light rain (green shading).

Check this out. Coordinates of Harvey are 600' from my house (blue flag). It's been sitting here for a couple hours now. Steady winds are reported at 75 mph with gusts to 100. We are doing great and still have electricity.

Hang in there, I hope the rain total forecasts are wrong for you.

Good luck down in South Texas. A couple feet of rains got to be hard to deal with.

I understand this as lot's of snakes looking for some place without water.

I headed out into the pasture to see what the damage. All three tower blinds are over and the lid from one feeder, that I just put 300# of corn in, is gone. All that corn will need to be dumped now.

300 lbs sure makes a lot of sour mash hog bait .... or really good catfish chum if you got the right honey hole.

As far as them nasty "no shoulders" seeking high ground from the flood waters, I've had to deal with many cotton mouths running from the high water on one of our local lakes I do a lot of surveying for. Every time the water's up 3-4 feet above normal the snakes seem to move up about 20 feet in elevation. Nasty things.

Thinking of you guys. Hope you are safe and dry. Getting regular updates on the News here in the Land Of Oz. We've been through a few 'cyclones' here in Central Queensland but never seen anything like Harvey and hope we never do. Good luck.
