I have room for a single gal too, but she's got to be quiet and avoid detection by my wife.

My wife and I have a room available for a military wife whose husband is deployed in the service of our country.

Kids are preferred and pets are ok as we have and love both.

Tranquil waterfall with koi in back yard. Private room with your own bathroom.

We will try to make you feel at home and we consider it a priveledge to help a military family.

If interested FReepmail me, dont be shy. Maybe yall can invite us to the coast sometime later, but its certainly no requirement. ;)

Well, if she's not quiet, you can send her on over my way. No wife to worry about here, although the dog and the cat and my twelve year old daughter might be concerned.

I'm pretty far north in St. Louis, but if anyone needs to go that far, I have room for two. It's a pretty tiny house but it has the necessities. I have two cats that might not take kindly to another, but I have family here that can help with that. A dog is no problem.

I've got room for a single gal here in Denver, CO. You'd get your very own bed and bathroom. I've got two cats, so animals are AOK with me, but maybe not with them. We can discuss.

Freepmail me if interested!

We're just north of Austin, only a mile off of I-35, and we can take your non-aggressive dog/s. We have one very submissive spayed female retriever.

Can't take cats due to the toxoplasmosis risk (pregnancy).

We may or may not have room for people-- waiting to hear from my neighbors - they have lots of family in Houston and might need the space we have.

Two spare bedrooms in northern Rhode Island. I know it's far, but it has to be better than some damn shelter.

(...how is a freeper going to do his/her freepin from a shelter? The horror...)

We are 1 hour north of Dallas and have room for 4-5 dogs (we have 2 spare empty pens in the back yard) and a spare bedroom for a couple or small family. We could even take a kitty or 2 and put them in a spare room. Freepmail if you want more info. TMG

I can't offer any lodging, because I live in the impact zone.

However, I wanted to remind pet owners who can't find any pet-friendly places to go that the Humane Society in the area which you're fleeing to can probably accomodate your pets while you are in the motel, shelter, or whatever.

I may have to drop my own pets off at a shelter north of here, since I am having a hard time finding pet friendly accomodations left.

I know my cats won't enjoy spending the weekend in a shelter, but I'm not going to choose between leaving them to drown, or staying to drown with 'em.

I live in North Austin in a one-BR apartment but it does have a queen sofa sleeper that can be used. No pets or smokers please. You'll need to get along with my parrot but she is usually well-behaved when company visits.

Not much on food/extras and can't be sure we won't lose electricity but flooding is fairly unlikely and it's a three-story brick building so I feel it will hold up unless a tornado hits it.

FReepmail me for phone number and directions. (I am a single male if that matters)

We have two sleeper sofas in a small home in North Austin, but not too much privacy. We have 3 cats as well. If that meets your needs, just FReepmail me.

I remember suffering through 2 weeks of August heat and humidity without air conditioning after a hurricane on the Gulf Coast in the early 80s.

Howlin asked me to post this here from this morning's sign-in, but many campers have decided to move out and go further north since the upgrade to a Cat 5, but I'll be here.

Hello all,

I'm in Willis on I-45 which is about 50 miles north of Houston. I am staying here at my newly opened RV park taking in evacuees and keeping our club house open for our monthly campers. Anyone leaving Houston in an RV, we are only 1/2 mi. off interstate and our website is www.omegafarmsrv.com and we still have spaces available.

Be safe everyone and I am hoping and praying that Rita diminishes and goes in at the least populated area of the coastline.
