Good luck and be safe down there. If it’s any consolation the preparations for this are already a week ahead of Katrina on this end, maybe a lesson was learned.

I suppose you guys must have the occasional blizzard and the like. That qualifies.

Good thing you did leave early!
The water does not seem to be aware that there is a stop sign.

It did a California rolling stop.

If I ever live down there, I'm buying a house boat. Seeing all that water in between me and my home would not be something I could handle. Yikes!


Those pics were taken at 3PM. I started marking water level every hour starting at 4 and ending at 7. There was a 4.5" vertical rise in those 3 h with the crest expected by 9. At 7, the entire driveway at 137 was under water and half of my driveway as well. As odd as it sounds we didn't even break a sweat. These water levels are higher than Gustov which went THRU Louisiana. Ike is one big storm and news in the AM from Texas will probably not be pretty.
TD Allison back in 2001(?) brought us more water than this and we had kayaks going down the street. Katrina was a whole different beast. Water levels for her were over the STOP sign in the first pic and at the top of the front porch handrail in the house on the top left of the second pic.

Yeah, Scott; this does seem like deja vu all over again. So again, our prayers are with you and the other fine folks down there.

My in-laws live in Houston (in a part that doesn't typically flood, so that is why they didn't evacuate -- though we begged them to come up to see us in Austin). They said it was a pretty wild night. They lost power a little after midnight, but all is well.

If you want to see decent coverage check out KHOU where they have a live feed. Pretty amazing storm.

Here in Austin it looks like we're not even going to get a drop of rain out of this thing. It's a little breezy, but that's about it.

Yeah, amazing how the forecast has shifted. I've had my sprinklers off for a week expecting the deluge... even this morning, the forecast said "100% chance of heavy thunderstorms." By 9 AM, it was down to a 10% chance.

Tough stuff this hurricane forecasting...

No doubt ... just think, a week ago folks in my south Florida neighborhood were pre-preparing for a direct hit from Ike and now you fellas 1,100 miles away are feeling the effects.

Wishing the best for you folks along the Gulf coast of Texas and especially in the Galveston area, take care.

We haven't seen -45 in a long time. -35 sure and only for a few weeks a year. I 'll take the cold over what they are going through any day and that is saying alot as I love it when it is +30 C or more.

Ken, I do have the ocassional blizzard when we stop in at the local DQ, beyond that for an official blizzard, according to Environment Canada, a winter storm must have winds of 40 km/h (25 mph) or more, have snow or blowing snow, visibility less than 1 km (about 5⁄8 mile), a wind chill of less than −25 °C (−13 °F), and that all of these conditions must last for 4 hours or more before the storm can be properly called a blizzard.

We haven't had an official blizzard around here in a very long time(IIRC), although we have come very close many, many times. I most likely just jinxed us. It is the duration of the winds and lack of visibilty that usually drops the storm from an official blizzard classification.
