Howdy Chad!

I am actually working longer hours during the Christmas break since this is the one time of year everyone leaves me alone!

But while all my associates are at the annual show coming up in late January, I will be taking it easy in the Grand Canyon!

All the best & Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!

Outstanding. Nothing, so far, beats family. Some more of mine arrived last night.

Orange?! You can't go any further east than that! :D

I'm in Nacogdoches :) My wife and I are thinking of retiring down in that area... a triangle starting in Orange, down to Galveston and up to Livingston, but on a large body of water away from traffic :)

How was the flooding when the hurricane came through ?

Yes, Orange is about as East as you can get! City limit is on the TX/LA border and we have LA swamps to the East and even South.

Flooding was very bad. I'm now in Corpus Christi, just moved in the nick of time. Our "stuff" was moved to storage about 3 days before Harvey hit here and received no damage. A week later Harvey wandered up the coast. The house we moved out of in Orange flooded, as did most homes around there. Our house there was well elevated for the area, shouldn't have flooded in 500 years. Rain sat on the immediate area for nearly a day, heavy enough that they ran out of colors on the radar. It was an incredible amount of water, I've never seen anything like it. The interstate highway was flooded for a week or two. Unbelievable.

In the last 10 years the area was hit by Rita (a stronger hurricane than Katrina), hurricane Ike flooded large numbers of houses in the county with salt water, then Harvey did it again with fresh water. My wife and I are personally "experienced" in handling personal disaster having had a house burn 15 years ago. It give you new perspective... all that stuff you can't live without, as it turns out you can.

Technically I lived in Pinehurst, a tiny town surrounded by Orange. I was on council there so pretty familiar with the town. We liked it there but were influenced to move here (three of our grandkids are here!). Loving it here in Corpus, but natural disasters can happen anywhere. Harvey shredded Rockport (about 30 minutes from here) and most of the Gulf Coast between here and Orange.

I'm glad you got out of Orange in time! Corpus is great too; I've got quite a few friends in Corpus. We would love to be on the coast, but as you said, the coast gets pounded from time to time. We may end up north of Houston ... maybe Lake Livingston or Conroe. Close to the beach, but far enough away to have a hurricane leading edge buffer.

My brother has a house in Rockport; ripped the roof off and dumped quite a few inches of rain into the house. The contractor just finished replacing the roof. Now they can start the gut-job renovation.

Our grandkids are in Colorado and Arizona... Maybe we'll end up retiring in Colorado :)
