Hopefully they'll get the rain they need without the collateral damage. Looks like the storm's going to hang around the area all week though.

Gotta tell ya, I have been in numerous thunderstorms that packed far more punch than this thing. Yes, got a little rain which is a good thing. Came through they say around 1:00 am but I did not hear a thing. Houston is all but immune to bad storms. Yes, we had a Harvey but it did not even come in here and it was a once in a thousand year storm. I am a firm believer that it is due to all the concrete, steel and glass in this horrible place. It is like a shield and when it does rain there is no place for it to soak in so it just floods. No flooding this time. They said early yesterday up to 20 inches of rain. I bet we did not get 2. Thankfully it cooled it off a bit. Hopefully the poor folks in southern Louisiana can get a cool break. They deserve it.

Was wondering. The Hurricane center had Nicholas center just about over Houston at 7 AM CST. But looks like nearly all of the rain is too the east. Radar shows some outer bands as far east as here. Had over three inches of rain here yesterday - but did not look like associated with Nicholas. Glad it is not parking and dumping like Harvey.

There are some branches and leaves everywhere but again, we have had thunderstorms that did this much. We in Houston are accustomed to the "cry wolf" syndrome.

Wondering how Baytown is faring - we used to live there. Almost evacuated once from their when Gilbert moved into the Gulf. Fortunately, his course didn't end up coming anywhere near us.

They got far more rain and wind than did the west side. This upon retiring for the night was supposed to go west of Katy, Texas which is a far west Houston area. I live about 10 miles east of Katy. Had it taken that route we would have been right on the dirty wall side. Instead it dipped and went below downtown and to the east. Again, they are wrong about 99% of the time.

As of 4 AM they reported the center on the TX/LA border - by now maybe Lake Charles. The radar shows all the rain east of there.
The rainfall prediction has the most ("6-10 inches") in a band along I-10 and the coast from the LA/MS border to Destin - including here.
Don't think I'll get any yard work done today!

It is stunning how Houston was supposed to be ground zero and Pensacola once again will be the one to take the brunt of the storm with the rain. You guys were not even on the radar with this one. The Pensacola/Navarre area has a tropical system target on their back.

We didn't get any wind to speak of - but rained all day yesterday - 4-inches. Not raining now but still overcast and may get a few dribs and drabs as day goes on.

Another day of rain in Navarre. Had about 1-1/2 inches yesterday, raining again today (Friday). About 8-inches for the week. Feel sorry for anyone who is here for vacation this past week! The Nicholas remnants just stay sitting over Louisiana!
