I have had no less than three phone calls today from friends (women) that are in full blown panic mode concerning Rita. They are on the verge of tears and are unsure of what to do, where to go, and how to get there. The Katrina coverage and the onslaught of terror that the local media is whipping up is driving some folks insane.

Have them come over to your place where its safe, and try for a foursome.

I'd suggest pointing them in a northernly direction, then have them institute a Full Bore Linear Panic.


It worked for Pat McManus.

After looking at the debacle in the superdome, wouldn't you be worrying, seriously tell those friggin wimmens to pay attention to the news and stop watching the Lifetime channel, start now, you can be sure if Rita was Cat2 or above I would be far from here....

Tell them to turn off the TV and just check web updates without the hype. I quit watching the news years ago.

BTW are any of them liberals? Al the libs in my family freak out when they watch the news. They are easy to manipulate.

it's not, it's only a few feet above. can't remember the exact number.

it floods pretty bad, even in rough thunderstorms. The last major flood was from a 2 day tropical storm in 2001. I set in front of my apartments/dorms that were luckily elevated, the highway was in front of us, the security guard and I watched cars float by on the freeway. Scariest shit I've witnessed.

and that was a friggin tropical storm.

yeah, with the "diversity" of houston, expect even worse than NO if law and order breaks down.

They must bring hot wings, pizza and beer.
See thru underwear and white T-shirts, no other clothing will be needed
You already have the guns ann ammo, so all you need is large plastic sheets and vegtable oil

Doesn't have to be. They built in on a swamp and rambled around a bunch of bayous, and topped it off with no zoning.
Low elevation + non-existant urban planning + metric buttload of people + 6 metric buttloads of pavement + 125,000 of NOLA's newest export + rainfall = turd floater.

Houston didn't do so well during TS Allison a few years ago. Hopefully Rita will move through quickly.

YET, giggity giggity gig. All-right.

I'm glad I don't have to worry about this crap.

I'm sure I could fit them safely in my bed. We may have to sleep naked though... You know, don't want clothes taking up precious space...
