    As of the time of this post, the weather channel forecast has a Saturday morning strikeby "Rita" in the Gulf Coast ranging from damn near Brownsville/South Padre Island Area of Texas and almost as far Northeast as to New Orleans (God Forbid).

    Assume you are a Mayor, a Govenor or President, what do you do now. The clock is ticking.

    Woo

    That is not the strike zone, those are the various computer models that project the path of the eye. If you go to the NOAA site, you will notice that they draw a bubble around those models and put a line stright down the middle and call it the three day projected path. NOAA will also show a 5 day path, and this similar to what the weather channel does too.



    You also have to remember that this projection, is where THEY THINK THE EYE WILL GO, hurricane and tropical storm force winds can extend out over two hundred miles.

    There is less than 5 days, what needs to be happening now?

    Would you be telling the people of Galveston to prepare to evacuate? What about Corpus Christi?

    Do you wait and see how bad it is after it passes the Florida Penninsula, do you pray it goes and sees Castro instead? There goes 1.5 days, a third of the warning time, every hour counts.

    Maybe the track will slow down, buys you more time, but by then the storm grows in strength and size before it hits.

    I would watch the weather channel for another day and get a better idea of where it is going to hit. Then if ti looks like it's going to hit Louiosiana, I'll go to texas on vacation or something.

    Let it go hit NO again, then we won’t need any more evidence for reasons not to waste the tax payer’s money to rebuild it after it wipes out the levees again.

    maybe that strategy will give you an "A" plus in the Nagin school of 'burying your head in the sand', maybe not

    They can have the port. Let the city be the gulf since it already took it over. They don't rebuild the beaches around beach homes anywhere along the coastline. The homeowners lose them because it is know state property. Why should tax payers absorb this expense?
