This is a thread for those of us who are in the path of Hurricane Ike.

If you still can, please post here if you evacuate so we can know you are okay.

If you are not on the cost but in the direct path like me, post so we still know you are Okay if your power goes out.

Please star and flag the heck out of this so we can keep track of out member's well-being if some of you are out of pocket for a while, and possibly arrange to send help to anyone who may need it.

Thanks!

Well I don't think Rita did anything much here but, it did in Hemphill where my dad lives, and we brought the food and supplies to them that we had bought for ourselves!

This one I am thinking will hit pretty good!

Thankx you stay safe too!

The traffic is horrid, glad I don't have to travel anywhere!

I have a few family members in Houston, still not sure what they are gonna do!

What happens when the people run out of gas evacuating?

I suppose they'll have to camp on 35 or 45 until somethin can be arranged?

Ike should be a Cat 1 when it hits here!

...certain death warning for people who avoid evacuation orders!

...up to 700 miles in diameter...20 foot storm surge! WOW!

Dallas area here.


I think they misnamed Ike. There's no possible way this hurricane is a dude. I think it's a woman and PMS is the reason for all the crazy stuff happening with it.

Anyway, I might end up in Palestine this evening to help my dad with some things before the storm hits. I'm worried about him down there cause he's in low lying areas by the trinity.


I'll keep you guys informed!

LOL they should have named it Hurricane May!

Well see if he'll go back to Dallas with you, maybe, the Trinity River is sure to get flooded!!

I just hope no tornadoes come, they scare me, way too many dreams about running from them to take shelter!

*puts on life jacket and helmet*


Take care sugar!

I;ve had those tornado dreams too, but I never even thought about the TR flooding.

Ok, so the word is........I'm not going to Palestine. Dad says everything is cool. He has boats!


The only reason I would go to Palestine now is if he gets stranded while trying to fish the flood waters, or if May is in trouble.
I'll save you my dear.

President Bush was in Oklahoma yesterday. Said he was here "to monitor the progress of the storm." And if he doesn't like the way it's progressing is he going to order it to go somewhere else?

A real leader would be helping and giving words of encouragement to those about to be affected not hiding in a neighboring state.


Hope you guys are ok. If DFW area isn't far enough away, I've got plenty of room up here.

It's Sunday morning Anderson County Texas and I only have to deal with fallen trees that are way to big to move or maybe even cut up with my largest chain saw. We had moved my wife's old dependable truck about 300 yards from the house so she was able to get to work but my car isn't going any where till I can move one huge oak tree. A friend that lives in Rusk ran out of beer and came over to Palestine to buy a couple of cases of Busch and had a pretty good adventure before he got back home. He is without electric power and his brothers house has a pine tree through the roof. Overall it wasn't as bad as a lot of the storms that are common to this area, but it sure did last for a long time. We were very lucky.

Glad to hear things turned out as well as they did. Looks like it's going to be a costly clean up. All in all, I'd say if running out of beer is your main worry after that hurricane then you did allright.

On a conspiratorial note: Aren't there oil refineries in that area? We may see the real damage at the gas pump. Then again, that may have been the point of having a hurricane there. Hurricanes can be redirected, ya know.
