This is a frightening storm. Would you believe that on a mom's facebook page that I belong to, someone who LIVES in Corpus Christi is actually contemplating having things ready, but still monitoring the situation? What the heck. Get out of there! Sometimes, I just don't understand people.

As a side note, our son, who plays soccer down there is out of the path, since he is at the southern most point (the tip!), which is to the west of the storm. They are only expecting winds of about 125 MPH there. I'm thinking his car may be in jeopardy of getting damaged by flying debris. He's also currently out of state w/ the team, playing in Utah. They left this morning ... connecting through Houston. Getting back INTO Texas may be a different story, though.

Its crazy how fast it has strengthened. Only thing I had to do was get fuel this morning. I live a bit north and west of San Antonio so I shouldnt be seeing much action. With the way it keeps changing though I am keeping my ears and eyes open because it seems to change in intensity and direction hourly.

Didnt notice a run on goods here either so I dont think anyone in this neck of the woods is too worried about it.

They have contraflowed the traffic out of corpus. So all lanes on 37 are moving north outta town. Im surprised Corpus hasnt been put on the mandatory evac list to be honest.

Don't know about the masses, but some Houstonians are taking it seriously. Good friends and fellow crazies (Preppers) are here! They are using it as a dress rehearsal for a big one! Don't get me wrong as I am a believer in practice, but they seem to be having just a little too much fun for evacuees! I get sleeping in the shelter even though the guest bedrooms are available, but is endlessly running up and down the lake on jet skies actual evacuation practice??? Swamp

Swamp, If it gets too deep you're always welcome up here in Missouri. We live on a hill.

My son just moved to Houston a month ago! He has stocked up on water and some food that doesn't need to be heated.

He's in an apartment, third floor, and car is on second floor of the garage. It sounds like the rain will be the main issue for them, not so much wind.

I've given him all the advice I can think of. Not sure how much he'll take. He probably thought the suggestion to get piddle pads for the dog (so they don't have to take her out if it's flooded) was a little over the top, but better to be safe than sorry, I think!

I have friends who live in the Woodlands, north of Houston, and am worried about them, because they've had some flooding in their neighborhood in the past.

If he lives in the Houston metro area proper he needs to get out.

I lived through a lot of hurricanes down there and a couple were about like this
one, its no joke when they say get out early.

We lived up by the Woodlands too and near the San Jacinto river, going to be a lot
of those new subdivisions destroyed up in that area if they get that much rain.
The developers don't care and the people moving into the very low areas likely
don't realize they should check the flood maps. They may get by for years without
anything major then one of these hits.

I hope everyone is safe, sounds like this is going to be a really bad one. Hope any
and all folks there stay safe, I know many aren't prepared and that's sad.

Wow, I missed that. Where did you hear it?

Driven, are you sure you are from Kalifornia? You make a lot of sense.

I have been watching a traffic mapping tool for
the past 24 hours, and one of the amazing things
I have seen is lines at gas stations that are long
enough to show up on the tool as stopped traffic.

They are starting to go away now, at the stations
that are out of gas...

had to wait in a half hour long line to get gas this morning.. usually there is no wait at all
so lots of the coastal folks have come north..

my wife works in the medical field and they are all(medical staff, directors and admin) on call through out the weekend (at least)for sure and many many patients from coastal areas have been moved to hospitals further inland.. so she is very busy and may have to remain at work over the weekend.

other than all that .. we are good to go.. biggest concern i guess for us would be if sustained winds do roof damage and we have to deal with the insurance people .. hopefully not
