Re: Hou-Dats, stay safe!!!

Holed up at TranStar again tonight, waiting for the shoes to drop. Its pretty much a storm shelter in itself, and floods shouldnt be a factor, here, because the Katy Freeway pretty much acts as our drainage ditch. There's a good chance I'll be stuck here till tuesday, because I think the roads are going to be F*****d. Im much more worried about all the people hunkered down, because I think some of them are going to end up on their roofs.

-- I cant help but think of you guys who dealt with that storm in '05.

I dont expect this to compare, but it just reminds me of when I was working,
and we were monitoring the event, and wondering where everyone was, and
how they were. Im glad to know

Hou-Dats, where you at?

Send your holy angels to watch over us and guard us. May they spread their holy wings to give us shelter against the storm. - TLW

Feeder bands in the greater Houston area now. Looks like Victoria is going to get it twice. Already heard it had about 24" of rain so far. They are predicting about 41" for them... crazy numbers. So far though, just a crap load of rain by me in The Woodlands.

How y'all holding up? My cousins in New Orleans-West (Katy, TX) say they're starting to wonder if they need to move to the Rockies?

Its looking like a real disaster. Katy is prob. ok...
Really, besides ridiculous rain, Houston's prob, is drainage. sound familiar?

Too much development, too fast...Instead of taking back and improving neighborhoods in New Orleans, Eastern New Orleans, West Metairie and Kenner were developed, effectively removing precious wetlands and spillway necessary to alleviate a community...

We're seeing it in Terrebonne, Lafourche, St. Charles, St. Mary Parishes...

Earlier this year we saw it in the Florida Parishes where officials were told it was coming and Army Corps of Engineers was too slow to address and take action...

My Dad had great advice when settling down in a community and new home one part of which was go there and visit during a heavy thunderstorm - miss that man very much...
