    Lol! I know what you meant if that helps? At least it wasn't bangwagon. XD Yeah we need to decide something with a quickness so I know... because if I stay here tonight, I'm pretty much stuck all weekend.

    No school for my son tomorrow so he'll be in the office with me in the morning and at Grandma's in the afternoon.

    I like watching storms but I was planning to go out Saturday night to watch the Tech-SMU game somewhere, I hope the satellite connection doesn't go down or that it's not so flooded I can't go anywhere, cause I don't have cable at home anymore.

    Dooods, if you are in the way of Ike or one of the many hurricanes that seem to be hitting US shores, please turn off your laptops and get the hell outta Dodge

    Thank you.

    Hope everyone makes it out dry and safe. And you will -- because you are no longer near the danger zones.

    I'm going to leave this thread now before I start getting all antsy.

    And Hexis!!! You changed your name back from Sexist!!

    You wuss!

    We made it.

    Hurricane Ike nearly overwhelmed the private levee systems in Plaquemines Parish. The hope is to federalize everything.

    Everything important or irreplaceable was already in my car. I didn't unpack the pictures, mementos, jewelry, and other hard to replace items after Gustav, knowing Ike was on the way.

    I thought I'd unpack on Friday. I don't work or go to school on Friday. Ike was hitting Houston. Maybe there would be rain or wind, but I could handle that.

    That morning, my aunt called to warn us the levees might not hold and we had to seek higher ground. I packed up what the cats would need and got some clothes together for Mom and I.

    I was still feeling pretty casual about the whole affair until my cousin spotted me outside while he was driving his tractor up to higher ground and told me danger was imminent. The levees behind us were like waterfalls. If too much erosion occurred, the water would flood us all.

    Mom, the cats, and I were ready to go almost immediately. I even had enough time to gather up the ingredients for crawfish etouffee so Mom could fix it for our fellow evacuees at my aunt's house.

    It was touch and go all day yesterday. I know firsthand that the volunteers at Braithwaite Park had given up yesterday at 8:30 am. Just then, the "Army guys" showed up and encouraged the men on hand to stay there and keep trying to save the community. They did. About 200 homes were saved, including three families I know. They worked for nearly twelve hours, until 8:00 pm.

    My home is further south that Braithwaite Park. We were in worse straits. My cousin, Michael, was one of the volunteers who stood in two feet deep rushing water and didn't give up.

    The attached pictures are from Scarsdale, which is just above my home. They saved us by not giving up even when all seemed impossible.

    Im glad to hear you all made it out okay! We were in the NW side of Houston, and there was a lot of fences damaged, trees fallen, and shingles and tin roofing gone but for the most part we were not hit with flooding or anything horrible like that. I'm still worried for a few I haven't heard from though...

    I haven't heard from my cousin in Houston, either, but I'm sure he's fine. I hope your family comes through unscathed, too.

    Scary times, Radio. I'm so sorry! O.o Please take care of yourselves.

    We rode out Hurricane Fran with 100 mph winds for hours. I know the awfulness of it. But you guys have the flooding dangers.
