Winds are picking up a little right now - becoming a little more cloudy. The nice mid-80s temperature is welcomed for a change from the normally 100+ temperature. I'm surprised at the lack of businesses boarding up.
Cameron County and City of Harlingen and other cities are beginning to issue sandbags.
Home Depot, Lowes, & McCoys parking lots are full of folks purchasing plywood. I'm boarded up - at least my sun room is - thanks to Jess and a neighbor, Denny Fields.
The parakeets in the park are real loud - louder than usual. They may be telling each other "we need to get the heck out of here boys and girls!" I hope they find a nice, warm, safe, place during the impending storm.
