I'm an evacuee again! This is getting ridiculous!

Sitting in my hotel in Buda, TX.watching the Weather Channel wondering if I will have a house to go home to. I live in Beaumont, TX., which has been hit by Rita, Ike, Harvey, Imelda and several other smaller events since 2005. Climate Change is speeding up. I grew up in Beaumont and we did not have this happen much, never had to evacuate. Now we hold the world record for the most rain over 3 days, 67 inches with Harvey. Imelda tried hard to beat that record but fell short thankfully.

I want to thank everyone at DU for their support over the years. Malaise was wonderful giving me words of encouragement when I felt like the rain would never stop. It was like the hardest rain you ever experienced, except that it kept up like that hour after hour, day after day. The sound was so loud on my patio my ears would ring. DU kept me from going crazy since I could charge my iPad and Mobil hot spot off of the generator.

I will need that help again when I go back to no power, ruined refrigerators and freezer, and 98 degrees 95% humidity for a few weeks. Glad you are here DU!
