That's what I'm really worried with about this storm. Not to take away from the people who are in the direct path, of course, it's just that they have days to prepare, wheras the tornados are so much more difficult to predict, and could be very wide-spread in this case.

I am near Houston as well, we are not evacuating. The Hurricane is going to hit just west of NOLA, we should get some rain, and possibly some strong winds at best. We dodged the bullet on this one. All of you in Louisiana that are riding the storm out....GOOD LUCK!

Well after seeing how this thing weakened so much by the time it made landfall, I am not the least bit worried. Looking over the radar data, in conjunction with what we have experienced so far, its not producing really bad rainfall. When its all over, everyone will realize that this one was not as bad as expected, providing the levees hold in N.O. At least they didn't take chances this time. Well, I'm going sit on the porch for a bit and enjoy the breeze

The good news is I live far enough north that Gustav will be storms when it gets here. The bad news is were expecting a foot of rainfall over the next few days.

We've had allot of refugees flood into the area which is a good sign. Looks like they learned their lesson from Katrina.

All in all it may not be as bad as was predicted. I'm just glad people were more careful this time around.

Thinking of all of our members and of course Niteboy. I'm relieved that Gustav didn't make landfall as the monster he was forecasted to be, and I'm so glad that so many heeded the word to evacuate.

Good stuff post-Gustav:
Made it thru unscathed!!
Cable internet restored!!! Hooray!!
No power since 09/01/08 at 9am...but we do have a generator, so we're far better off than lots of other people around here.
The only damage to our property was an uprooted Japanese plum tree...I didn't like that tree anyway!!

Bad stuff pre & post Gustav:
Looting (quickly squelched by sheriff's department)...breaking into homes, jewelry stores, Wal Mart. At least one person I know had their generator stolen from their carport (chained up/secured...stolen anyway!!).

Utility workers in oneparticular area of town require armed law enforcement escorts/guards in order to get power restored...seems they were being harassed & threatened by the very people they were trying to help.

Some folks who are damn well able to fend for themselves are just frothing at the mouth to get their hands on "disaster food stamps", MRE's, ice, tarps...anything at all as long as it's "free."
Makes me sick!!
