Every time I think I've come to terms with the fact that I'm highly unlikely to still have a house or any of my stuff not in the car, some stray thought about yarn or Halloween shirts or all sorts of weird random shit will cross my mind and remind me of the stuff I've left behind and freaks me out again. So I watch the TV coverage as the damned storm crawls along and this evening is seeming like a lifetime. And everything I see seems to make it highly unlikely that my house will escape without hideous damage at best. The hurricane I'm currently sucking down really isn't helping my mood any and I suspect I'm dragging down the mood of the party. [ profile] tygerr seems to be taking all this much better than I am--his house is in a somewhat better but still vulnerable location, but he only has one story and not my two. Not sure if that will make any difference at all. And his cub has been in phone contact with a friend who is stuck in Seabrook as her parents wouldn't evacuate. I fear this will not end well. Given how allergic I am to mold, even if my house survives with only first floor damage, things will be pretty well unbearable (and I really don't expect that lucky of a result given what I'm seeing). And there is the rather large pecan tree behind my house to worry about falling on stuff as well. *sigh*

I feel like such a loser party-pooper since people keep asking how I'm doing and/or looking worried about me. This makes me feel guilty since we all know there is nothing they can do any more than I can.

I know I'm a little farther north - I'm at the beltway essentially, and on the other side of the 45 - but the rain just started here and it really hasn't been as bad as we thought it would be so far. We're not even done putting the tarps over the last few windows yet, and we keep waffling about if we should bother... we're going to I'm sure, but it seems like the storm will pass to the east of you too so we'll both get the clean side of the hurricane.

I haven't seen anything talking about it going east yet. I'm concerned with the storm surge--Clear Lake is going to get the worst of it coming up the bay from all the maps I've seen and I'm in a storm surge zone (so is [ profile] tygerr but my house is much more vulnerable). I keep hearing numbers well over 20' (some up to 30') and I've seen simulations before that show my area under water at anything over about 17'. And given how well sound from outside travels into my house, I'm thinking it is not horribly well constructed. :-( At least I'll have somewhat of a clue from news reports about anything that happens at JSC since I'm right behind them.

Stay safe! *hugs*

Denise, I feel exactly the same way you do. I went through relief&gratitude that we got out, with our cats, without a 20-hour drive... and now I'm depressed and worried as hell. I dread the thought of the next several weeks and months. And although I got some important possessions out (mostly artwork), I'm depressed about the stuff still there.

I took a nap today and had a dream that Paul left me and then a hurricane came and washed everything away. When I woke up I just didn't want to get out of bed. The moods come and go.

Hang in there.

I want to tell you to have a couple more drinks and stop worrying, because no amount of worrying is going to change the course of the storm.
However, I know that's not really helpful, because you already know that and it's far easier said than done. So, instead, I'll suggest you have another hurricane or three and know that your friends are thinking about you and hoping for the best possible outcome.

I'm already contemplating heaving over 1--don't think more would help. *laugh*

I don't know...could be sort of symbolic. "Down the drain with you, damned hurricane!"

Hell, I'm sniveling over the likely fate of the squirrel that keeps shooting pecans at me with military precision when I get out of my car at this point. Not a good mental path to follow given where it is likely to take me. :-( And the birds who always shit on my car, though they at least have a chance to wing it on out (though not far enough away to be out of the winds).

I'm a worry wart as well. It is what I do, my mom taught me well. Don't drink anymore if you're nauseated, nausea often accompanies worrying. Don't worry about bringing the party mood down, they will all understand.

I hope the damage is minimal. :(
