Yeah, I noticed it this morning on Cnn.com as well.

Good thing I stocked up on 1000 rds of XM193, and I have 500 rounds of Silver Bear 5.45x39 coming soon ().

but definately need to stock up on bottled water and canned food.

this should be a heads up to everyone here in the SE.

Keep in mind tha Katrina had hurricane force winds as far north as I-20.

Alot of people need to assess their preparedness, ASAP.

TRG



true. Houston would be worst hit if we were anywhere in the path of the storm this city floods like crazy.

What other ready-made meals can you buy besides tuna fish and the like? Assuming you have no power for a few weeks to heat anything.

Ramen noodles are just fine if eaten unboiled. They are like crackers.


TRG



was wondering about that, I love those, but wondered if your system can break down dried ones as well as when they're cooked. Not to mention they're about $.50 each.

yeah but look at Trop. Storm Allison, wasn't even a hurricane and flooded a large part of the city! I know cause I almost got trapped that night on the freeway. Can't imagine what a (GFB) category 4 or 5 would do to this city.

Pray and prepare.

Reunion Arena is just about empty now. Only people being kept there are the criminals, sex offenders and others that have something on their background checks. People that now we know something about them, we can't legally release them into the public in Dallas County....but the mayor has pointed out that we have buses available and Collin County is closeby.

Plenty of room for people from the coast.

I have a few cases of canned Ravioli and some canned soups. These can be eaten cold right out of the can if necessary. Canned tuna is also great and is super cheap at Costo or Sam's

Link Posted: 9/19/2005 11:25:14 AM EDT

Statement as of 11:00 am EDT on September 19, 2005



since the last recon fix shortly before 12z...which measured a 997
mb central pressure...very deep convection has wrapped around the
low level center...so Rita is developing substantial inner core
convection for the first time. Dvorak intensity estimates at 12z
were unanimously t3.5/55 kt...which is the advisory intensity.
Recon is scheduled to be back into the system early this afternoon.
Rita is moving toward the west-northwest or 285 degrees at about 10
knots...to the south of the eastern extension of a strong mid-level
ridge centered over Texas. Dynamical models are in very tight
agreement through 36 hours on basically this continued
heading...with perhaps a slight increase in forward speed as the
ridge to the north strengthens and the tropical cyclone deepens.
Most of the models and their consensus have shifted northward...and
the official forecast is adjusted likewise...bringing the track
closer to the Florida Keys than the previous advisory.
Additionally...most of the models have shifted farther north late
in the forecast period over the western Gulf of Mexico...due to a
weakening ridge as a trough approaches from the western United
States in several days. The official forecast is adjusted to the
north or right over the Gulf...but not as far as the model
consensus.
Recon data and surface observations indicate the size of the storm
is increasing...especially to the north of the center. The
forecast wind radii are expanded based on these data...wind radii
Cliper guidance...and global models depicting an expanding system.
It is important to emphasize that Rita could affect a large area
and one should not focus on the exact track.
Atmospheric conditions are continuing to become more conducive for
strengthening...and all forecast guidance suggests Rita should
intensify some more...before and after it reaches the Gulf of
Mexico. The new official intensity forecast is adjusted upward and
is a blend between the SHIPS and GFDL guidance through day 3...and
shows Rita reaching category two status before reaching the Gulf of
Mexico. There is a slight possibility it could strengthen faster
than forecast. All indications are that Rita will become a major
hurricane over the Gulf of Mexico... where a large upper level
anticyclone is forecast by the models to dominate and provide a
weak shear environment.

cynthia woods pavilion in the Woodlands.

promised her I'd go, but I called her at work and said there's a good chance it won't happen now, she even asked if they would still play if it was just a storm! Yeah, I don't want to be sitting on the back lawn getting drenched, only maybe if Tool was playing.

For my job, we get accuweather professional. Their main forecast guy, Joe Bastardi, gets paid to predict this shit, and he hates the the tv boneheads.

Anyway, this mornings report, he says by sat, we will have a cat3-4 hitting between houston and galveston.

He's not saying that for any ratings, the only folks who get to see his reports are paying for it.

BTW, nat gas futures are up over another dollar. oil futures up $4.39 to $67.39.

The market is wasting no time in preparing. Shell has started the evacuations of wells. BP has started as well.

Were you around for Hurricane Alicia in 1983?

It was only a cat 3. Where I lived was without power for 2 weeks.



I was around, but I was 3 years old.

I'm afraid when my wife and I go to the store tonight, all the bottled water and a lot of food will be gone.
