If something plows through here again, you can bet people will be getting outta town. Dennis scared alot of people who stayed for Ivan when there were reports it could have been a Cat. 4 at landfall. I thought I never would be relieved to see a Cat. 3 make landfall here. At least seeing the aftermath of Opal and Ivan gave me a good idea of what to expect out of a three.

Well that was not nice Daniel. We just dont need it. Shoot.


This is from one of our local mets in Houston. Rollie knows of him.

I need to alert everyone now that it may be another 3-5 days before we have a good idea where the this tropical system will eventually head. There may be a lot of fingernail munching for Southeast Texas for a few days.

"In the history of the world, the true test of a civilization is how well people treat the most vulnerable and most helpless in their society. The sponsors and supporters of this bill believe that abortion is wrong because unborn children are the most vulnerable and most helpless persons in our society. I agree with them." - Mike Rounds, Governor of South Dakota
