hurricane hermine, rainwater tanks full, bros birthday

dang that hurricane/tropic storm came right close to us
we are inland several hundred miles
would hate to see what it would be like to be in a level 3 or 4 storm
as it hits the coast line
no doubt would not stay to sit through a storm like that

we have got more that 5 inches-my 5 inche gauge filled up early last night
the rain and wind just comes in waves
nearby has gotten 15 inches of rain overnight
expect have got here well over 10 inches
and am still getting more rain

some schools are closed down
only one report of missing motorist who drove around a barrier
the car and driver have not been found

at daylight will check my rainwater tanks
no doubt they are completely full
tanks by my house was overflowing last night
that is so hard to take loosing water from the tanks
(have the rain water collection virus)
but we have enough to last for a long time now

our electricity was off last night for several hours
when on rainwater collection system you cant get any water
without electricity
lucky my nephew he brought 2 gallons of water with him
when he came from out of state
have a 12 volt battery that i keep charged with a solar panel
on my old well house
just plugged in a light to the battery for light
thank goodness the electricity finally came on

today is one of my brothers birthday
want to wish him a happy birthday

his story-he barely got out of high school(think they passed him
just to get him out the school)
he started college but did not make it through the first semester
he entered the military which was the best thing that happened to him
while there he attended school and got his first bachelors degree

after retiring from military at 39 he attended college
he got another bachelors degree, a masters degree, then got
his phd

he now teaches at a college
parents dont give up on your kids they still may be productive

was not being productive out of high school
was working on a road crew building bridges
he convinced me to move out of state to live with him
had done what he had done ie did not finish my first semester of college
he convinced me attend college which i did part time while i worked
later went to school full time

thanks bro for saving me
