I went to H.E.B. (Nacogdoches & New Braunfels) this morning without any problems.
I did see more displays of water bottles all over the store.

I donít have a carport so Iím covering as much as possible the car windows in
case of hail.
Not sure if hail is in the forecast.

I didn't hear of any possible hail and I hope it doesn't happen.

Thanks!
I did stop by the FD at Austin Hwy yesterday, and they told me that I should never store it in a poor ventilated area with live fire (water heater with gas pilot). They recommended outside shed or just a back porch. Crack the vent a bit and cover the cans so rain water will not enter the gas. That's it.
Bunch of very nice guys!

No one was there when I arrived just after 10 PM, but I waited few minutes and they came back to the base. Someone left a small dog there on a leash. While waiting, I was thinking to go fast to a gas station and buy some dog food and water. Who knows how long the poor dog was there. The FD told me that dogs happen often, and people leave babies too...

Me and my family "survived" two super typhoons in Guam. Had no power for 7(ish) days. We did just fine. I think the kids were more excited not having school then realizing the discomfort of no A/C and etc. Geez people, sure there will be flooding and damage and not to mention the knuckle heads that will once again try out the low water crossings. But it's not the apocalypse.

I used to think SA was hot and humid until I landed in Guam during the Vietnam conflict
back in ’68.

Yes it gets hot and I hate the mosquitos in SA, but I'd rather be here than any other place
on this planet!

You mean I don't need 17 loaves of bread and 14 cases of water for a 24 hour period?

I'm trying to figure out when we've ever been without water service here in San Antonio.

I know, it's pathetic! Been going on for years! Weathermen get all melodramatic and even people not under a weather warning will just lose all sense of reality. I haven't seen a drop of rain from this system so far. We will most likely get some rain tomorrow and Sunday. I'm not worried. I survived the 2002 deluge without any extra supplies and I'll survive this just fine also, even if we should lose power for a bit.
