    Thank you. Yeah, we’re in the current forecast area for landfall. It is what it is.

When she came back, she quit the Red Cross. She later told me that if she had had a gun at a time, she probably would’ve killed people. And that’s about all that she would say about it. I gathered that things got pretty gnarly.

    So be careful, people. Sometimes, disasters can bring out the worst there is.
    I put in some volunteer time at local shelters after Harvey in 2017. You would hope that stealing from or raping your fellow evacuees would be unthinkable. Apparently not. Imagine having lost your home and almost all your possessions, being bussed with your small child 5 hours from home with nothing more than what was in your backpack, sleeping on cots in a HS gymnasium and waking up to find your wallet and phone gone. Having no way to be contacted (by family, friends or FEMA) .... and who remembers anyone's phone number to call your people from a landline? People can be real scum.

    Add to your to-do list... Back up your contacts list to the cloud and have a way to access it from a generic computer or a strangers phone.

    One of my hats at County was shelter management. This was something we spent a lot of time trying to handle - shelter safety is a huge issue.

    I'll add mine. This screenshot says it all: 155mph for several hours while barely moving north.

    An axe and a single pike might be enough.

    You do what you can do. Every single day. But life these days seems to be a unrelenting sequence of dealing with imbeciles.
