Every since Rita's been starting to grow, I was thinking to myself: Texas. Wasn't there something about Texas? Alright - cows, the President, oil, Madison...
Now it finally dawned upon me - the Cafe is hosted in Texas!
I just checked, and we live in Dallas, right beside Fort Worth. So Mad, if you see the WebHamster floating by, would you please rescue him?
Seriously though, the datacenter is supposed to withstand an F5 grade tornado, so I hope it can deal with Rita as well. And after all, it is *not* in Houston...
Glad to see I made the list.
You forgot our trucks and guns though. Lol.
So you mean I can really give us a visit?
That actually would be kind of cool to check it out. Interesting......
Yes, I'll save Hammy if I see him. I like the little guy.
Ok guys, some updates of what they are saying on local television.
Galveston is a ghost town. Seems totally deserted except for a few news crews and the National Guard.
People have been running out of gas on their way out of Houston. Average speed out of Houston is roughly 10 miles per hour since it's so clogged up. All highways are northbound only, all exits are closed. Gas stations are all out of gas. However, Bush has authorized gas trucks to start near Galveston and refuel the drivers who are stuck on the side of the road with no gas.
A couple of stations have reported that anyone who willingly stays behind that has children, will be hit with fines and jailtime for "child endangerment".
That's really all the big stuff I have heard about today. Some of my relatives have already made it here, others are already north of Houston and will be here sometime Friday, so looks like my family will be safe.
Hope everyone else who's got family down here has the same news.
Oh, and they are saying that by the time Rita gets to my neck of the woods, it could still be a class 1 hurricane. Doesn't sound too good, but at the same time I'm not really all that worried. Wind and rain from a class 1 really isn't too bad when we're pretty used to seeing a tornado here and there. We'll just have to wait and see though.
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....
