Hey no worries. I'm the guy who had two bones sticking out my arm and was making jokes with the Medics on the ambulance. Most of all I got Jesus
. Long standing joke there. Everyone who knows me says I am highly optmistic most they have ever seen and many have said that I am the most relgious person they have ever seen. So I'm fine.

Katie once told me "We could never have kids because if we took them to the beach and one was drowning you would scream ' DONT DRINK THAT WATER IT WILL MAKE YOU SICK!' "

meaning I never panic.

My sister is going insane because my family and I refuse to allow her to smoke cigerrates in the house and she really wants to smoke but cant get outside. so... yeah I'm more worried about my sister driving us all crazy.

Hey Mizar, good luck to you!

Maybe you should call FoxNews and tell them you're staying at home
It would be nice to see a member on air.

To Call FOX News Channel:
1-888-369-4762

You'll be fiiiiiiine!

Just stay indoors, period! Remember that the eyewall may pass over you and cause a false sense of quiet.

Mizar, stay safe and I wish you the best! I will be praying for you and the rest of the people who have to weather out the storm. Hopefully it will not be as bad as they predict. But the meteorologists might just be right, for once, this time. As the projected path of the hurricane has been correct so far.

Mizar you are very brave for posting pictures on ATS, but don't be too foolish, and STAY INDOORS!

You have my way above vote.


Again God Bless and Stay Safe!

Mizar, I wish you well of course but, you guys really should not push your luck with this storm.

If you wait too long, you may not have enough time to make it to safety.

Hurricane Isabelle did tremendous damage up here in Northern VA and those outer band
winds were only clocking between 60 and 80 MPH.

The scariest moment was when I ran outside in the middle of the night to get some cigarettes from my truch and the wind literally sounded evil.
The storm hit before daybreak and we woke up to toppled trees and powerlines eveywhere.

We lost power for 6 days. You may be out for much longer.

It may be best to put most of your perishable food in the freezer before the power goes off.

I hope you have a Coleman camp stove or gas grill, candles, canned goods, bottled beverages, manual can opener, some clothing stored in tightly closed bags, lots of extra water stored in bathtubs for cooking, bathing, flushing etc.

TAKE photos of everything you consider valuable and burn it to CD. or up it to Image Shack for safe keeping.

Best of luck to you and your family.

UM_Gazz that article "The Big One" was amazing to read -- thanks for posting the link. Too bad mods can't get Way Aboves or my last one would be used for that post.

Looking at the people still waiting to get into the Dome in the rain and all -- it is amazing that people are staying as calm as they are.

OK I've decided I'm goign to stay logged onto the ATS chat As long as possible AKA until my power goes out. SO I may not be there to talk but that just is to show you all I'm still OK.

Currently no rain jsut some light wind kinda strange...


I'm in my room listening to "Riders on the Storm" by THe Doors

Yes that Big One story was amazing. If it does hit, I think there will be no cleaning up from this.

Mizar, I don't know what you are up to right now, or if you can even read this. But there is no need in taking any further risks to bring us either pictures or video of this extreme and dangerous storm.

Stay inside as others have advised you here.

Be advised that unless this storm weakens a great deal you'll be faced with an incoming surge of gulf water as high as 20-30 feet. as the eye wall passes your area it could be east of the lake above you and then force even more water from the lake southward toward your area. You could also be faced with hurricane force winds for hours.. some gusts could be greater than 150 mph.

This is nothing to be taking chances with.. You should already have your safe room ready.. But most important at this point is to be ready for extreme and rapid flooding.

May God be with you and yours.

In case you haven't done the math or need help visually here it is... the surge estimates and the wave estimates.


Surge estimate from weather.com


Wave estimates from oceanweather.com

With a surge of 20' to 25' plus waves of up to 40' you are looking at the top of the waves being some 60' above the normal water line. No problem clearing a 15' wall there.

Mizar, you may want to also consider backing up your pc, shutting it down and covering it garbage bags. I'm looking at the streetcam from Fat Harry's and it's fairly quiet at the moment for you, light winds and light rain, the center of Katrina is still 230 miles away from you but the weather will continue to deteriorate in a hurry. Hurricane force winds extend 105 miles out from the center and tropical force winds extend 230 miles from the center...so you'll start feeling the breeze real soon....power should be going out as soon as tropical force winds are sustained over 35-40 mph.

It was a late night for me last night. About 5:00am or so followed by only 3 hours of sleep so I am calling it a night so unless something major happens I won't be posting any updates. Nerdling is taking over for the evening since he never sleeps anyway

Hang in there Mizar! This thing is a monster so stay in doors and don't take any chances. Stay safe and good luck!

Mizar, definitely take care.

I'm not sure why you are staying? I've looked in this long thread to find out why? You make your own choices, but this is not something I would try to weather out. It doesn't make you less of a person to get out of the way of something this big.
