   Safetydude  Home safe and sound after leaving on Sunday. only one big hiccup; after passing through PC Beach I headed east to
intercept I-75. Big mistake; no gas. I made it to Wildwood and that was it. I had to stay there Monday night and was able to fill up around ten the next morning. There was gas but no power. Once I filled up it was an easy ride into North Port.
There was minimal damage to our community and , best of all, none to our home.
Thank you all for your concern and thoughts.

   Gram77  Never dull this time of year in Florida. Pretty good size hurricane in the Atlantic and this time it's the east coast preparing. Hubby and I are on the Gulf side of the state but given the tracks so far we for sure will get pretty wet if nothing else. Our park is in an A Flood Zone which always makes things interesting. The weather guys tell us they will have more and better info by Friday. We shall see.

   Gram77  Thanks a bunch. This particular area of Florida gets ready some times and we get lucky with only windy downpours. I haven't been this concerned for all of us since Andrew. Hubby and I are ready to leave if necessary. I think tomorrow will be the last I check out the movie site. Got my boots ready. : )

   Phooey  Just a reminder: During the catastrophe known as 9/11 in NYC, the Connection's founder Joshua Goldberg ran toward danger to help in any way possible. May that same spirit inspire others during this Texas crisis.

FEMA and the RedCross weren't much help for Charlie + 3, but citizens from as far away as Oklahoma came and cleared our streets, yards, homes and Utility trucks from around the country were here to get us back on line. It's the citizens, American's helping American's that make us so special

   Tulsa  You are all in my prayers. Please be safe. Pls take care.

The reserves were ready to help yesterday... as soon as they can get in. And Gov. Abbott is doing all he can to help you.

May the Lord bless and help the volunteers get to the residents.

   Safetydude  Ok, so I'm going out on a limb here.
I don't know if the Governor called for a mandatory evacuation, or not.
If he did, and some people choose to ignore that order and now need rescuing why are we, the taxpayers, stuck with the tab?
A helicopter ain't cheap to run and if citizens put themselves in harms way, on purpose....

   StormCnter  The governor did not call for a mandatory evacuation. That is usually left to local officials who have on spot information. In some towns, the mayors did exactly that. In others, it was voluntary but encouraged. Houston, for instance, is a city of millions and most of them will not be in danger with the flooding, only inconvenienced. There's not a standard good answer in these situations and I agree with you that people who refused to leave shouldn't call on the taxpayers to rescue them.
