    Best of luck boys. It's an inadequate thing to say, but it's heartfelt. I pray everyone makes it through this monster.

    Unfortunately, conditions in the Gulf tend to feed those bastards more than anything. I hope more people heed the warnings this time.

    Skim, also heard that if this big fat thing back washes to the east, that possible 15-20 foot waves may hit as far as New Orleans.

    the gulf is really getting hammered this season and we have till mid-November yet ! ugh :cry:

    I'm in College Station, TX, about 100-ish miles northwest of Houston. The eye was supposed to pass right over the College Station area but I think it's moved a bit. I am a little worried, the situation here is basically what happens when it snows in Florida- no one knows that to do at all. We're predicted to get 80-mph winds, maybe a tornado, and a couple inches of rain. I'll be stickin it out in my dorm drinkin beer with my roommate. Can anyone out there give some tips? Wish A&M luck in the weekend!

    you have a bomb proof basement, but actually I don't like the idea of being buried alive as a possibility. Why don't you pack the rig with some buddies and head northwest as now it appears that Louisiana may get the hammer down again, it has moved north to the surprise of the weather forecasters.....

    keep watching but in your case, keep packing and head out.........
