When the dispatchers start receiving "come and get me calls" before the eye of the hurricane eye has made landfall, that tells me these people are not the sharpest tacks in the box. People make choices in life and some are not too smart, but making the call that early is plain stupid and means you have no consideration for anyone but yourself.

You don't have one named Beau there by chance do you? My nephew has a machine tool business in Houma and shot me a text of them smoking some ribs where they were staying in Katy.

There are always going to be the knuckleheads that want to ride it out. Katrina fixed that problem, so now you have 40 phone calls for help vs 4000.

Nope. No Beau.

There was no mandatory evacuation and not everyone has the means to just jump up and leave with less than 24 hours' notice.

Use to be U.S. Coast Guard Hurricane Committee when I worked.

Most of their planning was based on wind speed of the tropical disturbance/hurricane. They used wind speed to determine when to shutdown the Houston /Galveston ship movements and shutdown the Inter Coastal Canal barge traffic. I told them where our docks were located, we would be under water before the hurricane got close to us.

When a hurricane forms in the Atlantic and with the tracking probabilities today you have a lot of time to plan and evacuate. When a hurricane forms in the Gulf, it is going ashore in 3 days. That is not enough time to evacuate Galveston County and Harris County.

National Hurricane Center flat out nailed this forecast 5-6 days in advance as far as intensity goes. They were dang close with the forecast track as well. Hats off to them. Not their fault if people (citizens and local politicians) don't take them seriously when they're putting out forecasts with dire language (something they don't do regularly).

Guys there are a LOT of folks that are quite prepared/self sufficient/ready to ride out any major storm....and they do, but you never hear about them. The news is always on the dummies that are not actually prepared or in a situation where they are even closely capable..... and then cry for help. They make everyone look bad. Lots of folks ride out major hurricanes with zero need for help. I know many of them. They live in well built/overbuilt homes and have all of their chit together/not in flood danger. Everyone's situation is different. If you are not 100% prepared/capable in every aspect or scared, then you need to evacuate. If you are, then pop a top and enjoy the show.

Yep you spot on Skinner....I too know several that never leave and are just fine. It’s old hat to them. Those are also the same people that don’t seek out anything from anybody. And also they want to be left alone. Some reporter shove a microphone in front of their face and said reporter may be needing some grill work....
That’s just how they roll.
Some fine outstanding people.

I remember the folks that decided to ride out Hurricane Camille in the late 60’s. It was a bad decision. And Gulfport was more land than Grand isle, which is sand at the end of the road. I can’t imagine anyone with half a brain deciding to ride out a Cat 4.75 hurricane there. They could have called 911 before the hurricane got there.

That said, the wife and I decided to ride out a big one (forget which one) that ran right up I-45 when we lived on the north side of Houston. 75 miles of dirt between where we were and the Galveston beach, and we were still scared bad.

I've rode out quite a few storms on land.

I volunteered to ride out a Cat 1 Hurricane on a deep water facility (floater) . All evacuated except for skeleton crew to keep her afloat if got worse and we had to shut in and skin out.

Hit was solid from the East, bobbing around in the Gulf pretty fun. I enjoyed the hell out of it. Some hands puked their guts up clap Only thing that aggravated me was I was trying to post on the THF and Farmers Only.com but my chair kept rolling and bouncing back and forth in my little space, made it difficult and I may have misspelled.

Also aggravating...all staff was evacuated so if hungry, have to fend for yourself. Cool, gonna take care of my people. I worked and cooked on tug boats out of HS, their kitchen set up is different. Their cooking apparatuses are built to handle that. Most big offshore floaters are not. So, just bending over to grab a pot/pan becomes an issue when you lose your balance. Pop your head a couple of times and you'll learn. Trying to make a sauce, good luck.

Should have just served sandwiches but trying to cook in those conditions was fun as hell......until you had to clean up the mess, but whatever.

We just loaded up two pallets of bottled water for one of the guys that works here and lives in Houma. When he can drive back in there, he’s taking one to a police department that asked him for it and one is for himself. He figures the pallet of water is good for a couple speeding tickets.

Houma and other towns got hit really hard. As usual the news is focused on a major city like New Orleans which fared pretty well this time. They are reaching for storm damage coverage.

Most of the heliports that I frequent are in Houma and Galliano. Pretty sure they are wiped out/in need of help.

Cajun people are strong hard working folks, like many of us here. They are our brothers & sisters. They will get things going again but they could also use some help, if you can.

Alicia is the storm that ran up I-45. I drove through it from D/FW to Houston. Hit the eye around Buffalo-Centerville area on I45. It was a Friday. I believe it was ‘83.


I'll pray for your goat.

In 1970 Hurricane Celia hit my home town of Aransas Pass. It was recorded as a Cat 3 storm, but that storm rating was crap. Celia was a bad biotch. Was most definitely a Cat 4 or more likely a Cat 5. I have a bunch of pictures, a Cat 3 storm doesn't pick up your shrimp boat and throw it over the levee and destroy your house too in Texas.

My Dad was a LEO at that time and volunteered to be on patrol. A 55 gallon drum went through the windshield of his patrol car and then some other debris knocked out the driver's side glass. Wind/rain pouring in. Dad said "Son, when all the glass was knocked out of my car and the rain was hitting me in the face, I figured it was time to turn back. He also said Son, I will never patrol another hurricane again, but there were some people that needed help and that was my job".

For coastal dwellers it seems like there's enough hurricanes for it always to be not if you'll get hit but when...
