    Today's paper says that Arkansas has stepped up to offer shelter to the survivors who Houston has to move.

    God bless them. [​IMG]

    Amen!

    But did we have any doubt about Arkansas with Joseph and Ken living there? [​IMG]

    Of course we stepped up. We're Arkansas. Thanks for the kind words everyone. [​IMG]

    I hear all the Fayetville residents donated a can of food each. That's what, 8 cans of food??

    Sorry, I couldn't resist. My brother lives in Fayetville, Arkansas. He says there are two signs in the town: one that reads "now entering Fayetville" and one that reads "now leaving Fayetville". And he sits between them.

    Yeah, Good old Arkansaw, Heard they handed out free corn pipes with the cans of pork and beans. [​IMG]

    My family is from Pine Bluff (Still there) and I often rib them whenever I see them walk around barefoot.

    Went to school in Little Rock myself. [​IMG]

    Joseph, Arkansas School for the Deaf

    My Athletic Director was Houston Nutt. Passed away not long ago. His son is head football coach of UA Razorbacks. They call him Houston as well, but family and friends call him Dale. Nice guy.

    Take cover Joseph,

    Latest tracks look like the eye is moving through more of Arkansas than it is of Texas, you are in from some major rain storms.

    We can do without the storm damage, but we desperately need the rain

    From what I heard, that dry spell that Houston and apparently you, had, may be what spares Houston. They said the dry air currents are what helped turn Rita.

    Here is what the local weather report says:

    http://katv.com/weather/

    It looks like besides some heavy rain and possible flooding, we are gonna be ok in Central Arkansas. In Southern Arkansas, However, where Ken lives, it could get kind of hairy. Also keep in mind that we are surrounded by mountains and are certainly on much higher ground where I live that typically, by the time a storm gets to where we are, it is usually not that strong. Finally, I would also point out that Rita has been downgraded again to a 3 today. By the time it gets to us, the most it will probably be is a tropical storm. I think we are probably fairly safe here. But, thanks for the concern and info. Rest assured we will keep a close eye on it and take the necessary steps to protect my family.

    I heard today that up to 24 inches of rain may come from this system in the Texas area.
