Who here from Texas or Louisiana has been warned/asked/told to get out before she hits. Who else in the Mississippi River flood plain is worried about her? Is everyone either ready to bug out or battened down for a tough one, she is up to a class 3.

If it can hit the part of Texas I'm located at with any force, then it's probably powered by God and running won't do me any good.

If anyone here has been "warned/asked/told to get out before she hits" and they're still on and reading this, they're pretty f'ing stupid. [:)] Mike
