here we go again.....
This will be an interesting time...
will the powers that be call for an evac......or wait and get people killed?
( Could be that "people" need to take responsibilty for them-selves. )
How many have the money to evac again so soon?
My plans are the same, stay ( up to a point, i'm not that dumb)

my uncle steve just flew in to Ellington Field today with his Disaster Management Team. gonna find out more if i can get him to call back. havent heard anything from Blackwater yet so i'm preparing again, refilling water, gas, checking preps and expendables. I have a crappy digital camera and a disposable. if we get something i'll document my side of it.

I have 17 gallons of water, 22 if I fill up the milk jugs I have. probably another 15-20 if I fill the tub. Got 2 Brita pitchers with extra filters. I havent started on the food, but I have enough for at least a month and a half if I stretch things out. as far as a Katrina type situation, I think I'll be okay- and FEMA is'nt sitting on their own red tape this time.

Luck to all of you in the path.
As for me.... still no electricity from Gustav but at least the water is going down.
Stay safe.
get ready for round two fella.

No word from my uncle yet, I think they have him put up at the holiday inn off NASA Rd 1, I may try to see him tomorrow if I can. I'm not sure what kind of equipment they have, but he ran his own ambulance company while being a senior fireman for the city of Groton Connecticut AND pulling nights dispatching AND occasionally consulting for the NTSB, before putting most of that up to start his own Paramedic school and the occasional stint for FEMA. I swear this man is a MACHINE. If anyone can run an emergency situation, he can.

He did link me to a website y'all might be interested in:

The state usually updates the sitrep daily as the hurricane gets closer. Here's a link to a downloadable PDF report.

They're already moving the computer models back up the coast. This is starting to look like a "Rita" tract. The Southern jet stream is building into New Mexico, and moving East. I think its going to turn the storm more to the North than projected. On the Satellite loop, it's tracking North of the official tract already. Mid gulf coast people need to watch this close this afternoon and tonight.

Looks like the storm track has moved towards Galveston. From what I heard, on wednesday, the impact point has moved 50 miles east.
