Maybe it will drive the Katrinians back to Chocolate City?

I was hoping for Models working for a company named Intensity waiting their turn to operate a new piece of heavy machinery from Caterpillar.

If it plays out right, we'll have a hurricane party and a few days off work.

Houston has poor drainage as it is about 2' above sea level from one end to another.

Nice, hardworking people.  But a 3" rain and underpasses flood.

I had my hair cut by a chick who was a Kartrina refugee a couple weeks ago. IIRC, she went from NOLA to Houston, to Dallas, to OKC, to LA, to Oakland, to Sacramento, to San Antonio, to Houston.  I asked her why she didn't just go back to NOLA and she said, "Fuck no. Dey killin' people."

I haven't watched gulf water temps in a while, but those numbers look pretty cool to my memory.  The Ike/Katrina years were several (maybe even 10?) degrees warmer, I think.  We noticed that the Galveston Bay water temps seemed to stay cool for a long time this year into summer.

Bring it on, I love a good storm.  Located in North Houston.

In previous hurricane threads someone has posted a link to all kinds of radars, maps, and forecasts for the Gulf of Mexico.
I apparently didn't save the link, anyone know what i'm referring to and have the link?

I'm sure it is not P.C. to say it...

but Katrina messed up TWO cities at once.

New Orleans got the Storm, and poor Houston got the Debris....

Hurricanes are good for the generator market.

Im sitting on 20- 22kw units that I am hoping to get some calls on soon.

Gah.  I'm in Brazoria county



Zone C right below Beltway 8.

If it's a Cat 2 it's going to fuck up Houston.

Hell Ike in 2008 was a Cat 1 and it did all sorts of damage around here.  My house didn't have power for 2 weeks.
