Yeah, love them hot kettles and bubbling cauldrons. Eye of newt, tongue of lark, brain of conservative, juniper berries, other small things thrown in. And coffee beans. And cocoa beans. And vanilla flowers. Mix in a blob of honey to overpower the taste of psilocybin mushrooms. Caffeinated hallucinogens -- an ideal mix. Oooh, the colors!

I plug into online Harvey news every now and then. Tomorrow should be vivid. Everybody in the path: GET AWAY! Everyone in the area: STAY SAFE! Don't drive through big puddles like I once did -- the LandCruiser nearly washed away. With dogs inside. Tragedy narrowly averted...

Yes, coffee sounds good. Pancakes sound good.

Lots of tornadoes warnings in the outer rain bands. four verified on the ground in southwest Houston. 50 mph winds at the seawall in Galveston. !!0 mph winds south of San Antonio. Tons of rain all along the coast.

Highway flooding is already starting all along the coast.

This storm is predicted to wander around like a lost tourist.

Coffee and pancakes coming up.... that's exactly what I'm having in a little while.

Doesn't look good on the news. Keep your head down, Tex - Me, I was always terrified of tornadoes. I want to stay far far away from them, hurricanes and from earthquakes. Blizzards? No problem.

I'm on my second cup of coffee. Breakfast this morning was two ripe peaches from my friends' tree.

It looks like Harvey is sending some moisture west, so come Monday or so we might even get a little of TxRad's rain. Very little.

Whole grain pancakes sound good but I'm on a low fiber diet for the next week (colonoscopy coming Thursday) so this morning is an avocado taco . . . and more coffee. Friday morning, though, look out!

Crap. I have family in Houston. I love him but he's frequently uncommunicative.

Walked a mile down a gorge, hurt my ankle slightly and walked a mile back up. Good times.

Hope everyone is well.

Evening all.

Been wet today but fairly mild. It has rained off and on all day. Some of it fairly heavy. I've emptied my rain gauge twice. Total of around eight inches of rain. Most of it was from one feeder band that came over during the afternoon. There is another on the way but is still across the lake.

Houston has gotten a ton of rain but is only now starting to have flooding problems. Most of the creeks and bayous are starting to get out of their banks. Three major training rain bands have gone through today with rain amounts of 3-5 inches per hour.

Six to eight confirmed tornadoes have hit Houston proper. One damaged more than 50 homes. We've been lucky so far, one dead from a house fire and only a few minor injuries.

Another four to six days of the same thing is possible.

Fresh coffee for the morning crew.

All this weather talk is making me thirst for some coffee.
This is not too much of a problem - IF I can remember the code for the 'Anti-Hurricane Store' so I can retrieve the kettle.
I think I'll acquire another and brew up.
Safe lives to those affected.

Ah- it's boiling.
Coffee, anyone ?

I could complain about my worsening vision -- more eye surgery soon.
I could complain about the continuing heat wave in Northern California.
I could complain about noisy fucking neighbor dogs still howling at 0200 hours.
I could complain (again) about bears and garbage and pumas and moles.

But my home and life and family aren't threated by flood or fire, so I really have little to complain about.

How much of Houston's industrial base will wash away in the next few days?

Good morning.

Thinking of you, Tx, and hoping for the best.

My brother in Houston lives in a building that I believe is actually a desgnated shelter of some kind. With all the flooding they have suffered in recent years, he has never been affected, so I'm hoping that will hold.

A peaceful morning to all.

Thanks for the well wishes guys but I'm on high ground north of Houston. Zeb is one of the ones I'm worried about. Last I heard from him he was in south Houston or at least working around NASA.

At 7AM the report was 13 inches in the northern part of town to over 20 inches in the south. That's averages for total rain in less than 24 hours. Large sections of south Houston are under water, as much as ten feet along some of the creeks and bayous. It is still raining and the rain is still streaming in. Several areas have had solid rain (2-5 inches an hour) since six o'clock last night.

Wide spread flooding and several areas are requesting boats of any kind for evacuating people.

Coffee and more coffee. It is going to be a long day.

Fingers crossed, chaps & chapesses.

Me? I'm enjoying my evening coffee brew.
And we ain't had rain so far (it's a Bank Holiday weekend here; it normally rains!)

I wonder if or how I can get one of those hurricane coffee mugs ?

According to the Nation Weather Service, an estimated 14 billion gallons of water has fallen on Harris County in the last 24 hours. Holy Shit!

Measured rain totals run from 6-8 inches up to 20-25+ inches of rain over the last 24 hours. There are boat rescues going on all over the city. More streets and roads are flooded than passable. Even major freeways and highways are under water. And it is still raining. The mayor has put out a call to anyone with a jon boat to please come help move people out of flooded homes. We sent 16 boats from this area down that way earlier today.

There is no way to drive from one end of the city to another.

According to our local weather service page, that 25 inches in 24 hours is 1.5 times the highest *annual* rainfall ever recorded here. If we were to get that kind of rainfall on our rugged and barren terrain, then the flash flooding would be devastating.

The GOES satellite makes it look like the heaviest rains have moved into Louisiana.
