Well I don't know what part of Texas you live in, but we have pretty bad storms here. Just tell the people of Galveston that the storms here are light...
The Woodlands, near Houston. We hear about people from Galveston a lot because it's only an hour away. They are cry babies who whine after getting a cut on their knee.
Wow, that is a disgusting thing to say, I guess you didn't hear about Ike wiping Galveston off the map a few years back. Lucky the Woodlands is far enough north you can live without fear. Good for you.
No. I heard. It wasn't that upsetting. Calling Galveston a beach is insanity. Water should be clear and blue, not brown and black.
You are disturbed.
Iburmaster ... Are you trying to pick a fight? If so, do it on your posts, okay? You said education is the key, then turn and insult others due to location. That's not education. That's trash talking. Please, do it on your wall & respect min
Teyeger, excellent point. The hurricanes of 2004, it was out of control with which way the meteorologist were predicting. Say this, go there. Each of those 4 outer bands had me evacuating. All was well outside of those winds, but why risk it?
KK Trainor ... I agree with the ones that have never ridden one out before. Having never been through an actual hurricane where the eye is involved, all I can say is the bands alone scared me enough, to never want to be in the center of any storm.
Would you believe my friends in NOLA are saying they will be staying in town to 'ride it out' now that Isaac is coming? After everything, the old thinking still prevails! Hope they don't need federal help again; it's their own fault if they stay.
Now this is a man that knows the power of a punch !!!! Those were some vicious hurricanes. And yes to getting out !! If anyone is in doubt, watch some videos on the hurricanes named. Andrew ... WOW! Happy you are here to voice truth. :)
I lived in NOLA for years, moved across the lake just before Katrina so only saw the wind. But had to leave because of other problems afterwards. Rita came to Houston just after, so saw that too, although only the edges of it. Part of life down here.
