So far, it looks like we will miss the dirty side of the storm here in Brenham.
I was in Dayton all day yesterday helping with hurricane preparations.
It took me less than 2 hrs to get there, but over 6 hours to get home,
due to the traffic from the mass evacuation from the coastal areas.
Good thing, since it looks like the center of the storm will pass quite close to there..
I have my wife, kids, and grandkids here.. We are all well stocked, and safe.
The ham radio has been quiet so far, but I expect that to change as the
reports of rescues come in , and the weather reports are relayed thru
the amateur radio networks..
I can be found on 145. 390 MHz. locally.
I may fire up the HF and monitor the 40/80 meter bands.
There used to be a very good 2M repeater in Dayton several years ago.
Would be handy to have now.. I suppose the NW repeater is in range.
