I'm up in the Conroe area & haven't been too worried about the approaching storm
(I've got my supplies in order) BUT the size & strength of this storm has me wondering
if I should be boarding up my windows out here some 90miles from Galveston

I've only got 2-3 trees close enough to the house to worry about roof damage, even
those it would be a stretch to hit the house.

I guess flying debree is the biggest concern at 70mph+ winds ??

NO. you don't need to board your windows.
you will be safe.
save the plywood for folks on the coast.

+ 1

Keep an eye out for "hot" electric wires if/when they come down--really nasty shit.

Pools of water could be lectrified, metal stuff touching downed wires will zap ya.

Be extra-careful.

I just had a buddy zap himself farting around with a dropped wire over his XX-wide. Not pretty.

well they're predicting the potential for 100mph+ winds as far north as Conroe now

glad I picked up some 4x8 sheets this morning

Boarding my windos on the south east side of the house.

Take care and stay dry!!!

Ditto that, Tim! I plan on boarding up all I can tomorrow. I think we will ride the storm out here, but that may change. As of 1:00 A<. 175 mph steady, 215 mph gusts. Movement now W-NW.
