Thanks dude. We got our generator, water, air conditioning unit, ect.

Hopefully it will die down a bit by the time it gets here. I wouldn't mind a 3.

I would advise leaving Houston for a few days just to be safe, but *shrugs*

Good luck dude.

*resists talking about a certain thing you said that you now wish you probably shouldn't have said. Karma's a bitch. :p*

I <3 California for this reason.

Good luck to IG and SD, at least be glad you're not stuck in a below-sea level city wedged between a river and a lake...

Yeah, you guys don't have to worry about any natural disasters there......

Seriously though, well wishes to everyone along the gulf coast.

Hey, there hasn't been a major earthquake here as long as I can remember. Therefore, there are no earthquakes.

There are no earthquakes.






There are no earthquakes!

Yeah... but its ohio... :(

This is some serious day after tomorrow ****
The president would ike to make clear that there is no proven connection between the fact that "Mother Nature has some serious PMS going on" and the foolish ideas of those scientists about global warming. :p

Keep safe dudes.

We have alot of work today, we gotta bring in vulnerable things and possible projectiles from outside. We gotta board up the back window and move furniture in the way of other windows. We gotta charge up lanterns and cameras and whatnot. And i'm gonna end up moving my computer somwhere safe, it's in front of a window right now. I'll be sure to make a post before I do that because after that I won't be on for awhile.

Good luck all.

I hope it dosn't do too much damage, but it sounds like Galveston is going to get hit hard.

I live halfway between Houston and New Orleans (I-10 runs right through here). Man we really got lucky.

Good Luck and be safe!

I left houston to get to mexico, so I got a surprise vacation out of this :D


But me and my family are praying..........that nothing happens to our 50 inch plasma TV.


EDIT: Seriously, praying for IG and everyone else that's still there.

Samuel and IG: Stay alive.

What about Rp?
He lives near Houston, afaik.
Anyway, I just hope that all the swampers who live near Houston lives to tell the tale to their children and grand children.

Good Luck, may you and your posessions not suffer damage.

Mother Nature's Mad.

And I blame it all on The Day after Tomorrow. I mean, it snowed in UAE, rained 952 cm in Mumbai (my city), Tsunami, Hurricane Katrina and now Rita!

Whatever happens, always stay away from floods and believe me, I have experience. Evacuate as soon as possible, or build an underground, water-proof bunker. I guess it would be too late now, CNN is showing uberfast winds and stuff...

I have two students from Louisiana in a few of my classes. Some jackass asked the kid if he left because he his house got destroyed and the new kid goes, "Oh no, its just underwater."

Seriously though, keep safe.

Samuel Dravis
09-23-2005, 06:39 PM
It seems I might not be seeing as much of Rita as I expected, but I hear Louisiana is not faring well with all the rain they're getting now. Apparently the levees in NO have already broken. :(

I went and helped some evacuees from Houston today, they were quite tired from driving 13+ hours just to get to Austin (normally it takes maybe 4)...

Mike Windu
09-23-2005, 08:09 PM
Well good luck to RP as well. I forgot he lived in Houston or somewhere around there.

Man this sucks, Good luck guys. I think it dropped to a 4 before hitting, so thats a small plus.

Man that sucks so bad for New Orleans. :( And apparently for you as well, Dravis; no tarp and rope trick now, eh? :D

All my best to everyone in Rita's path. I'm glad to see that people are more prepared than they were for Katrina. I hope everyone involved comes out of this all right.:)

Just talked to IG and supposedly it missed him.

However I will leave the rest of the conversation out... :p

09-23-2005, 11:08 PM
Update: Well, it looks like it turned at the last second eastward, we're on the very edge of it. It hasn't been very strong today. Supposedly it's supposed to get worse in the coming hours. Thanks for all the well wishes guys.


EDIT: Mike: I'll unblock you when you wise up and stop calling me an idiot.

shukrallah
09-23-2005, 11:18 PM
Well, thats good news IG... hope it doesn't get much stronger than it already is. If anything, it should be weakening...

Mike Windu

Perhaps you shouldn't ask for hurricanes then.

Anyway, glad to hear you're doing good IG.

Well, it looks like it didn't miss us completely after all. We still got some pretty strong winds (though I see no damage), and a little bit of rain. I actually wish we'd have gotten a bit more rain because it is muchly needed in Houston.

I am glad of where it hit, in a less populated area, yet we still got some effects so our preperations weren't all worthless. :p

Well, I still got to go to Mexico so HURRAY FOR NON-DAMAGING HURRACAINES THAT LOOK LIKE THEY'RE GONNA WIPE OUT THE CITY

Thanks for concern, heh. However, I live in Dallas. We're supposed to get some of it...but in it's weakened state.

Well, Rita has weakened considerably. How are you doing, IG?

Good, sorta tired, gotta move everything back to where it was so we can get on with our lives. Which is gonna take awhile.

Joetheeskimo
09-25-2005, 09:46 PM
So you had to evacuate, then?

IG-64
09-25-2005, 11:20 PM
So you had to evacuate, then?

No, nothing like that, we just had to bring everything inside from our backyard, which includes a trampoline that has to be assembled, and a tree in an incredibly heavy pot that we had to roll on pipes egyptian-style around our house into our garage. Among other things.

Good to here IG.

We had to go to St. George on friday, and then when we got back our phone line was dead, at school right now, but my mom is going to the cox building today to get highspeed.

**** YEAH! FINALLY!
