It shore nuff is lookin like it's gonna be nasty. If it takes the projected course....we gonna be in for some ruff stuff in another coupla days. Have invited friends that live on the coast up if they need a place to stay. But if it comes in at galveston or there abouts it's almost a guaranteed fact that we'll be without power for a few days here. Them cow water barrels is gettin rinsed out real good haulin water, will fill up nicely for me if I need it. We do have a generator we can run the well off of then hook back up to the deep freezer and such. Just hope there's not too much wind up this way.

What I'm wondering since I'm 100 miles dew north of galveston, just how ruff should I expect it to get this far inland? I've lived here for 15 years and so far haven't had to deal with anything like this. And the weather channel is no help they dont seem to wanna say what happens inland.

Click on this and check out what NOAA is showing for a rain forecast. Seems to be pretty reliable.

http://www.hpc.ncep.noaa.gov/qpf/24hrqpfall.html

It shows what will happen for several days down the road. I trust it for blizzardsards and rainfall and it ain't lety me down so far. Only proble3m is, it didn't show me getting much rain this summer, and it was right! :cry:

It's a pretty handy site to keep on your favorites list. :)

Lilly,the thing you want to watch for being that far inland is tornadoes,some of these storms spawn several tornadoes and that is probably our biggest danger................good luck

I was just thinking. If this storm hits Texas and destroys it then we have double the destruction that we had from Katrina. But if it hits New Orleans that is already destroyed then the total destruction would be much less.
I say lets send Jim Cantori to New Orleans.

I wonder if West Texas will get anything out of Rita??? Maybe it will cool down a degree or to.....oh lawd..or maybe we'll get some rain?!?!?! I think it has to hit down near brownsville and then travel up the Rio before it will reach us out here. If it hits galvaston it will just give all you east texas people another 50-60 inches. lol

To add to the 70 or so I got this past winter/spring that dried up a long time ago Tibbs :p
The last small tropical storm we got thru here back in 96 or 97, was a slow moving one, not alotta wind but lots of rain, 25 inches in 4 days. Creeks were outta banks everywhere, couldnt go to town. I'm just hopin we don't git major major winds with this. if it turns and heads straight north and hits galveston the way they are saying, I might be gettin to see the strongest winds inland and the eye. (wonder if it takes down some pine trees I'll git that lil log cabin built outta the "leftovers" that I've wanted for a long time???) lol
I think no matter where it hits on the texas coast haymaker and myself will see some rain. As for west texas gettin it usually they hafta hit down between Corpus and Brownsville to get em to go on to west texas. I've seen it a time or two in my life time. Once while stayin the summer with my grandma we had water standing all over the pastures and in town as well bout a foot deep. Rained for a week. WE HAD TAD POLES everywhere!!!!! That was the first time I'd ever seen a tadpole or a frog for that matter lol.

Well Haymaker if Rita blows you to Canada I will gladly show you Canadian hospitality but you have to promise to drop the R-CALF crap while you are over top Billings preferably on Leos and Bills Heads. :wink:

But I agree with Denny if You just get wound up you could blow Rita right back into the ocean and save all of Texas. :lol2:
