    How come there didn`t seem to be any hurricanes at first, and then they all just started popping out of nowhere?

    Or is that me not paying attention to them?

    Everything`s bigger in Texas, so they say.

    Hang in there cowboy.

    Arizona told you not to hang around Louisiana, they`re nothing but trouble.

    Texas finally has a use for all those Y2K bunkers!!!

    JW, what`s the big fuss all about.

    I know it`s landing on a major urban area and it doesn`t happen often....but it`s only category 2, so it won`t be "that" bad will it? And by "that" bad I mean " Is Houston or Galveston built below sea level?

    I have never been in a hurricane, surprisingly....although I did get blown away by low prices at Wal Mart once.

    How come hurricanes aimed at Texas get posts dedicated to them, but none for Louisiana or Florida? I guess we`re just used to them by now.

    Hurricanes are fun but had so much damage to my place in Uptown in New Orleans when Katrina came I feel bad for these people.. Although watching the news Galveston is almost completely underwater already and people are still there sight seeing??

    There was actually a video of this reporter on the beach and a guy in a bear suit dancing around him!!

    Woops sorry not underwater yet..they have a 17 foot sea wall built in the 1930s yet the storm surge is going to be around 20 feet with waves still on top of that ...something like 40% of the population stayed! Did they learn nothing from Katrina?

    Well, may you all go unharmed for the most bit and if there is damage, may it only be some loose shinvgles or somthing that can be fixed easily.

    But some unfortuneytly, may feel all of it`s wrath.

    If you need to explain it, its not popular


    "and my area has a curfew. Lame, huh?""

    My area goes out and steals stuff from places where there arent lights...

    its starting now for us. just went outside and its doing a good job of shaking all the dead pine needles out...yard looks like crap. I know what I`ll be doing on sunday :(.

    lets just hope my windows hold up, nobody on my neighborhood boarded up except for the guy across the street, but he just sunk $15k+ in restorations.

    The choice of Kyle" and "Ike" for their names was made purely for their resemblance to the word "Kyke". And they`re both Jewish.

    I`m in S.E. Texas, we finally got power back Friday, but suffered just minimal damage. Lots of folks in our town lost much more. One family lost thier home and belongings due to fire from a downed power line. I am blessed
