We are "sheltering in place" as well. We have our supplies and will be fine. I can not believe all the "come to our house" offers we have received. You people are GREAT!

We’re one of the few hold outs here in our neighborhood, Sugar Land , the couple across the street took out at 5 am this morning and returned 10 hours later after sitting in traffic. Dee and I putted around in the HEV checking on things. 59 South, like all the others is a parking lot, it seems that Rita has shifted a little to the east of us , I’m thinking it might hit the Texas LA border.
Hope all TCB’s and families are safe.

Subject: [tcb] No Gas!
My neighbor went looking for gas at 5:00 AM today and found nothing, I needed a bolt for Sparky and looked around about 8:00 and no gas. Just got back from the neighborhood gas stations at 3:30 and all of the pumps are wrapped in plastic.
If you ain't got it, you ain't getting it.
We are staying at home, 5 - 5 gallon Ozarka water jugs, plenty of frozen bottles of water in the freezer for ice or water, an extra propane bottle for the grill and a couple of charged batteries and an inverter, plenty of grub and a six pack of beer.
Our neighbors are coming over tonight for fajitas and marga"Ritas" and a swim in the pool.
Sounds better than sitting on I45 for 30 hours trying to get to Dallas.
Good luck to everyone - hope you get to Dallas Steve.
