Haven't heard of any egg owners being in the blow, are any of you down in the wind and rain? I just talked with my nephew who made it through without any damage to house or home. They live in the Harlingen area (southeast of town in the country, not far from the Arroyo Colorado, realy a small river); they are without electric as are another 30 Thousand people in that part of Harlingen. Someone brought them a generator just before it hit land. They have power for the frig and a light. He said he wasn't expecting much from Dolly and did not board up his house. However, it was much more wind and rain than he expected. No damage to window or anything, but he was hoping a tree didn't come down on the house. He had gone through one in the late 70s or early 80s as a young man, and would ride a cat.3 out now he had thought. After Dolly as a just into a cat.2, he said he might just rethink staying for a cat.3 in the future. His sister, who lives in McAllen had been getting rain all day and some wind but nothing severe when I spoke to her early today. There step-brother, who lives in Arroyo City by the coast east of Rio Hondo and nearer where Dolly hit land, had a fence brown down and some damage at his place. I have not heard from other relatives down in the Valley as of now.

We may get a little rain off of her Saturday up and over here in New Mexico and Far West Texas Area. Another reason I have no intention of moving back to the Gulf Coast.
