How is everyone doing on the Texas coast.


I am way out in west Texas so I am missing this storm.

Everyone stay safe.

I called home and not to much yet is going on.

I hate this storms.

1. It's coming here tomorrow. I'm prepared.

I did all my errands today, and I'm not in a flood zone.

I might lose power for awhile, but I can live with that.

2. Glad I am visiting the Davis Mountains.


My house in Houston built in 1930.

It is over built.

Built off the ground, almost 3 ft.

The guy who built it survived the 1900 hurricane in Galveston.

Feels strange bring so far away.

6. Forecast has improved today... *fingerscrossed*

https://spacecityweather.com/

"As Nicholas nears the shore we are starting to get more confidence in rainfall forecasts for tonight and Tuesday morning as the heaviest rains from the storm move through. And as a result of this we are lowering our Flood Stage alert for all but coastal counties."

4. Galveston County, checking in. So far, so good.

Just a steady, light rain and occasional gust so far.

12. Lots of wind and sideways rain. No damage here...

Just some medium-sized branches down. I still have power. All is good.

7. Fort Bend County joining the chat. Rain all day, gusty winds off and on. Flood watch.

Hurricane prep kit paying off. Plenty of gas for the genny, cases of water, tarps, and batteries in all the flash lights. Ready as we’ll ever be.

9. Corpus Christi here

Our worst winds were last night. We're on the dry side. The only clue that there was a tropical storm passing close by was a small storm surge.

10. So far okay

It appears that the storm has shifted to the East and this has lowered our flooding chance https://spacecityweather.com/as-nicholas-nears-we-are-lowering-our-flood-scale-alert-for-all-but-the-coast/



We are in Stage 2 flood alert which should be okay. We had no flooding during Ike or Harvey

14. So everyone make it ok?


Damn a hurricane, not sad I missed it.

Called the house and everything is ok, just some wind.

Could have been worse.
