    Here's an interesting site on what a Category 4 or 5 hurricane will do to the Houston / Galveston area..... Hope we don't have member's of the "SMT" Survival Monkey Tribe or their family and friend down there.... my sister's in San Antonio.... already called her.... she's ready for the worst..... [peep]

    My brother is in Houston..and intends on doing nothing.... :rolleyes:

    Bet if they take a hit he'll be wanting that generator and everything else..

    Or a place to stay....

    I have friends there..and some much closer to the Gulf...One is staying and one is leaving....

    I have been thru a CAT 5 hurricane and will never stay again..That was in 1989 and I have left ever since then....It's something you never forget....
