    Man, I hope for the best, but this one sounds bad.

    Check out the seawall of Galveston. Unbelievable how high the waves are with the eye of the storm still 10 hours out. This cat 2 storm is going to do more damage than a category 4 storm could do.

    I'm watching it close. I have really good friends there. Some of them left. A couple didn't cause they are rescue workers.

    They are scared, too........It's gonna be bad tonight.

    I don't really pray, but I'm thinking one is needed right now.

    You're in dallas, right, six??

  • SixofNine

    Yes, Dallas.

    Wonder how long Houston is going to be w/o water. Can you imagine, a city of 4 mil w/o water?

    Heh heh, this was beautiful: Ike beats Tinaldo

    FULL MOON makes things worse, I hear...

    Scott Stevens, a former NBC meterologist, posted this on his blog yesterday...

    Houston… New Orleans times 10.

    Get out.

    The major hurricane known Ike is about to pulverize a healthy portion of the Texas coastline, along with a nearly full moon, accentuating the storm surge with higher tides.



    Read the rest of that blog post (w/photos and explanations for his opinions) here:

    Let the 2008 Atlantic Hurricane Season Begin
    Jun 27th 2008



    It's always fascinating to check Stevens' site during hurricane season... or anytime for that matter... I like when he puts up the photos with arrows pointing out the "not normal" parts of these storms...


    Over a week ago I saw this hurricane-watcher site mentioned somewhere:

    "Crown Weather Services ( ) is great website for tracking these storms."

    They have IKE right on top of the page. If you keep scrolling down their IKE page, they have all the maps, charts, plus the most current updates from the National Weather Service.

    Google "Seabrook TX". You can see how people could be trapped there; it's surrounded by water. I hope there is some high ground somewhere there.
