    Yes it is beautiful with all the trees but they may end up being a curse through this storm. We have two VERY large trees right up against the house. Hopefully they will stay in place. :biggrin: Where are you heading out to? My hubby just called me from 45 and said it is already like a parking lot.

    We are also staying. I have just been to Sam's club and it was chaos. Looks like most of the gas stations have also run out of gas. Seneca and everyone else in Houston, I hope you all stay safe.
     
  13. The 5PM NOAA forcast track has IKE going up the west side of Galveston Bay, which means (for now) Monica and I will be on the "clean" side of the storm! yay

    There was a stream of people coming all the way into the Dallas metro area last night. I45 North was extremely busy. Although people were managing to get through, some drove 10 - 11 hours or more due to congestion and some gas shortages.

    However, there is no question in my mind this was handled amazingly well. Katrina taught everyone a very hard lesson. Especially the coordination between state, local and federal agencies.

    May God have mercy and protect those that are in harms way, especially the cival servants who stay in the danger zones to protect others.

    Well I think we're on the dirty side of the storm. I will report as soon as we get some winds...if we still have electricity. Galveston already has some flooding and the storm hasn't even hit yet. I heard on the news this morning that those people who have beach homes will indeed lose their homes...that in itself is so sad.
