Blue Moon.....what a fun day.  Please let us know what it is like.  Mere   

 

About 30 minutes away, looks like about 1/4 has occurred, looks like a hunk of cheese with the top part bitten out of it.  It is dim light now, real errie quiet, no birds singing, wind blowing, temps falling.  On my way outside to sit on the front porch to take it in.  We have only 1min 38sec for totality so no pics from me.  It is wild watching this.

Awesome is all I can say.  The sky got completely dark, could see it without glasses for about a minute, I have about 4 hummingbirds that went crazy flying in circles running into each other.  They were amazing to watch.  Everything else got very quiet and then neighborhood kids starting setting off fireworks and yelling.  We live on a busy road but cars stopped at side of road and got out to watch.  I loved it.  Too much excitement for this retired person.

Thanks for sharing, Blue Moon!  What a cool experience, making memories!   

A few people brought welder's masks to watch it through at work.   

I was in protect the eyes at all costs mode, and watched it on TV.  I know, party pooper!!!!

Thanks Mere and TM.  It was an awesome experience.  I can't explain the glow of the sun behind the moon-corona I think they called it.  It was like GOD was reaching out to you.  All the people outside in our neighborhood did the same as us, complete silence as we stared up at this.  It sends chills down your spine.

Mere, next time you go visit your old home you need to stop by here.  Hope you are doing good Mere and loving your new home.  So good to know you are close to your family.

I 2nd that Klaas.  It could be a cat 4 but more likely a cat 3 storm with 20' waves and 15-30" of rain.  I think they are calling for mandatory evacuations.

Stay safe all.

I hear flooding in Dickenson TX is pretty bad, isn't that where Texas Equusearch is located?  Prayers to all in the path of the storms and flooding!

Serious Question?  Does anyone know if someone is shot straight in the middle of the forehead if it would cause a black eye and a huge knot on one side of the top of the head?

I am so sorry to hear about your daughter.  I rarely even come here anymore but saw your post and signed in to answer you.
When! a bullet enters the brain it can bounce around in the skull and cause the injuries you describe and others.  The lump you describe is probably where a piece of the skull was misplaced or even the bullet itself lodged.
If you don't want to talk about it, I understand, but I am curious to know how this happened.

Hello to monkeys.

Klaas.....that is their location.  I heard that TE went over and got their grandkids out of the flooded area.
It is hard to watch this for hours and hours, but I have family in Katy, TX and my sister is in San Antonio.
I wonder if they realize what they are facing.  I remember the houses filled with water for 6 weeks and absolutely
nothing could be salvaged.  The water became toxic with gas, oil, chemicals from vehicles.  The grass was gone.
There were no birds or insects.  There were no trees, plants, bushes....  Everything was dead.

My kids had to knock down their house.....and then found that the ground would be affected with the toxins for some time so they sold the property "s is".....and moved north of Lake Pontchartrain.

I think of the hours my daughter spent in lines for everything.  The Post Office was dispensing mail at one location and everyone in the whole area stood in line....she waited four hours. 

The paperwork for FEMA never ends.  Same for insurance.  I guess same for everything. There is a box of Katrina papers that is still in the closet. SIL and daughter both lost jobs as the businesses were flooded.  Daughter became employed about 90 miles away....and still commutes.

It took them 8 months to find a new home.....having moved 8 times to various locations.  All of the realestate was priced sky high.  But....they love where they are....out in the country in a small town.  SIL is retired and renovating the house.  DIL loves job.

I am a mile from them.  Can you tell how this affects us all for so many years?  There should be a book to help people through it.  Hugs, Mere

Good morning, Mere!   

Thankful to be safe and dry here so far.  I was thinking so many of the same things last night as I watched the coverage.  One family I know that got out of Houston before the flood were told to go on their vacation as planned because it would be at least three weeks before an insurance adjuster would even talk to them.  They filed early.  Their house was built 50 years ago, and had never flooded.  They're mourning possessions left behind, not making sure things were put up higher, etc.  They're young, they don't understand yet.  But they will when they go home with their little ones.  It's sad.  Yes, there should be a book to help them.  Hugs, backatcha!

No fires near me but I have friends that live up north near the Napa fires and they had to evacuate.  Northern California is still way out of control, it's horrible.  It is devastaating!
