Re: SEVERE WEATHER ALERT --- ISAAC HEADS UP

good to see we're paying attention.... Also good that you guys know the drill, and you know where to get real information, not hype.

I about half ashamed of the way Houston Media is dealing with this, already invoking the K-word, and all the hype that people who dont really know about New Orleans say. Please understand that most people on the air in Houston are not FROM Texas, much less the Gulf Coast.

Right!! If we all waited for the media and the government to tell us anything, we wouldn't make it..LOL

This is nowhere near a Katrina type storm. We will be fine. Appreciate the well wishes..I will be back to talk about our boys in black and gold in hopefully 3 days when the power comes back on..lol

@Papz..take care of your family bro!! Enjoy your mini vacay..lol If I had the means, I would be doing the same thing just so I could get a break..lol

Graci.

If it were just the wife and I, we'd probably stay and get drunk. This storm should be nothing honestly. However, better safe than sorry... plus I've been wanting to get out of town. Got to work til noon... then I'm off into the sunset!

Yeah, this sucks.

People already going crazy on the West Bank last night & this morning. Gas, bread, etc. has been gone for hours. I've already told the boss I ain't working Tuesday night / Wednesday morning (I work the graveyard shift).

I've got no intention of sitting in NOLA waiting on this thing, even if it turns out to be a big wuss. If that's the case ... well, I've got some extra water, beer & beenie weenies if y'all want some! Me, wifey & doggie will be hunkered in Gonzales.

The problem is unfortunetly its not going to be a wuss. If the GFS verifies, we are talking up to 36 hrs of hurricane force winds. It is predicting that once he comes ashore he is going to damn near stop! Then slowly drift NW. It's showing him not leaving SELA until Thursday!! The rain fall prediction is approaching 20".

Even though this is going to be a relatively weak hurricane, it is going to be a strengthing hurricane on landfall. This is going to make it much worse. During Katrina, new orleans experienced gust 90 to 100 mph. Big difference between gusts and sustained winds. Especially for the time frame we are looking at. It's going to be a ruff ride!
