    Coming in just west of us, Will stay in house all boarded up, Yard cleaned up, sand bags ready, trash cans ready for collecting water, plenty of bottled water and food, We are for most part high up but 15 inchs rain in short period of time no one is safe. And high tide will be in when the storm passes, We have been dry so maybe the ground will soak up alot of it,

    Unhappy Well I guess I'm next

    The wife just called me at work. She said that she got a call (recording) from The Emergency Management Agcy. Mandatory evacuation for Victoria county. It looks like the eye will hit some 30-40 miles from here. Cheryl and I will probably take a ride over to Progesso, Mexico. No motel rooms available in Texas. Well maybe in Dallas. I hope my house and shop makes it. O well the insurance is paid up. Hurricanes do happen on the coast. Sort of spooky though. If anyone knows of any motels avaible in Texas please let me know. Guess I wont be around for a while. Roy

    It looks like it is turning more to the North than expected. So will be hitting the Coast more NE.

    May still be going into it if you go towards Dallas.

    You want to go West, but don't know about SW to Neuvo Progresso.

    McAllen is booked full?

    Smart Governor in Texas...

    One of at least one of the major interstates the Governor closed all inbound traffic and opened up all 8 lanes for outbound.

    I would say this makes sense but bet you the Governor is working extra overtime to be sure the minimize the cluster F that happened in N.O.

    its a very big mess right now

    I left my house on the bayarea side of houston around 1pm wen. and it took me 5 hours to drive from there to my inlaws house in spring. (50 miles). We are safe from the surge, but will get a ass beating from the winds.

    I couldnt find a hotel any further inland except for oklahoma city. And to get there, you are looking at a 24 hour drive. Houston to dallas is now 16-18 hours. There is no gas anyware or food. Katrina scared the hell outa everyone here.

    Some of my close friends left at the same Time I did from the same part of town and they are still on the interstates trying to get to family in other cities (Austin & dallas) 24 hours so far for them on the freeway.

    We are hunkering down and got the generator with about 150 gallons of gas. Run some window units and refrigerator. Hope everything goes ok.

    everyone on the gulf coast are nervous wrecks. I am trying to hold everything together.

    Actually all interstates were open heading out of New Orleans the Saturday before Katrina.

    Even though they have no clue where its really going, were going to be 150 miles east of it as predicted right now, wind and rain already kicking up here, this is great we get the beatdown again.

    I believe this storm will turn more into Louisiana, the levee system in New Orleans will be destroyed and there will be no more New Orleans after this one.
