    I'm in East Texas, waiting to see how hard we get hit here
     

  4. Houston will be mostly unscathed, looks like. I live pretty close to the coast (within the Houston area, anyhow) and my college (UH-Clear Lake) emailed all students and said we're not expected to get more than one inch of rain here.



    Stay safe, everyone.

    If the opportunity presents itself, and it's not a threat to your personal safety, try and get a picture of the eye. I remember when I lived in Florida I went outside when the eye passed over us, and it was totally bizarre.

    Pretty fancy neighborhood.

    Of course, our fave bassist in the 'hood needs Bubinga
    tops on the sheathing.

    Given how often you use it, boutique sheathing is going
    to be the next fashion statement

    "WOAH DUDE, you are using that crappy 4ply plywood from
    Home Crapot? NO WAY!'

    Clueless neighbor and Gtard wannabee 'Yeah, that's all they
    had!"

    Spiffy Spenser , "Uh, yeah, I ordered mine 3 years ago, had
    them custom fitted to each window out of 13 ply baltic birch
    with a top veneer of Bubinga, with chromed hardware,
    completely sealed and sound insulated. They are built in, just
    push a button and they deploy; push another and they detract
    and stow themselves.

    gui****: 'Whats 13 ply bubinga bitch?

    Normal protocol is normally to elevate the basses to the highest point possible. As well as that, put them in cases, preferably hard cases, and wrap them multiple with trash bags and anything to help keep the water out

    It totally depends on how the hurricane's structure progresses, but it is possible to have a period of total calm for a few minutes before being slammed by the hurricane wall.

    Those pics bring back memories when my area got slammed by 3 in about 8 weeks in 04. I hope the umbrella and the lanterns and other loose items in those pics were picked up before you were done. If they weren't they are gone for sure once the storm hits.

    Bring in all your potted plants - they will become missiles for your house and your neighbors. Stay safe.

    That remembers me, hurricane George. I lived through it and saw many fliying roof in my neigborhood in Puerto Rico. If you stay home, be safe and be very carefull.
    Hope for the best, but prepare for the worst. If you think you have enough ice and batteries, buy more. Something I learned by living through George, was that you see the wind blowing from one direction,(storm front) the wind stop completely and you think it's over (eye) and in few minutes later the wind blows from the other way. (back of the storm). Be carefull, be very carefull.
