I think there is no way Hannah can not make US landfall. I think florida alligators are going to be tasting salt water pretty soon.

Well I am a little stressed about Gustav, I have a very nice Saltwater Reef tank that will be totally destroyed if it hits. I realize there are more important things, but I have lost so many to so many storms. And it takes years to get one really going good. Plus 3 years ago hurricane Rita rendered my family and I homeless. On a positive note, I only have one tree left that can fall on my house and if it falls I will get that Kitchen remodel I have been wanting to do. Anyone that has not lived through a natural disaster just can't quiet understand what it is like. I know for sure I never did. I would watch the news and see all the damage and destruction and think man that really sucks for them....then I would change the channel and not really think about it again. Over a month without power will give you plenty of time to think about it. Cleaning up your house with a front end loader will too.

All the best luck to anyone in Gustav and Hannah's path.

Good luck to all of you however we need hurricanes here, the drought in western north carolina and upstate south carolina is horrible, faye brought some good rains. I hope these storms wont have any bad effects, it is inevitable to have them though. I grew up in eastern NC we had our fair share of storms and always managed to come through unscathed. I hope this season you all make it through alright.

That was only in 24 hours, the storm was at that stage not even a class 1 hurricane and it passed about 200 kms south of Santo Domingo. The total for the storm must be around 300 mm (milimeters), which is by the way closest to a foot than 40 feet .

Woke up this morning and find out we are under a mandatory evacuation again...damn these storms. I think it is time to move. This time it looks like we may see some action. Looks really bad for the guys in Galveston and Houston.

I have a friend that lives on Galveston Island across the street from the beach- not looking good for him.

It's going to be bad...pretty much a worst case scenario for Galveston/Harris Counties. Even though wind speeds are only a Cat 2 (a strong Cat 2 - only 1 mph under Cat 3 status at the moment) the storm surge into the bay and Clear Lake for some reason is more on par with a Cat 4 storm. FEMA estimates over 100,000 homes will be flooded and $7 Billion dollars in damage. Our last Cat 3 (Alicia in 1983 - I lived in Clear Lake during that one) caused $2 Billion in damage.

Well I am running on Generator power and hacked into the Internet, but I am a live. Looks pretty bad down here, some estimates put all power on another 5 weeks out. It has already been a week. Having no power sucks. I had to drive 120 miles yesterday to get fuel. But we are still alive and doing great. Haven't eaten this good in years, everyone is cooking everywhere because their freezers are all down. Be thankful you have power. I was lucky not to get that bad storm surge, but some areas close by really got hammered with it. My d90 was safe and sound in a big warehouse, never even got rained on. Hope all others affected by the storm where as lucky as I was.

Glad to hear you are okay. I've got family in New Orleans and they were displaced for a few months when Katrina hit. Hope things will get back to normal down there soon.

Having a generator definately makes things a little better. I remember Hurricane Gloria that went though Long Island many years ago. Nothing like Ike, but our town had no power for weeks. Luckily, our boat (in our backyard and undamaged) had a generator that we used to keep the fridge, tv, ac and lights going till we got our power back. Our neighbors became closer because of what happened. Strange how it takes something like a hurricane to do that.

Take care of yourself

Photos from Clear Lake we took on Wednesday.

Photos start at Nassau Bay (across from JCS) and work east along NASA Parkway through Taylor Lake Village, El Lago, Seabrook and then south on HWY 146 into Kemah.
