I may be off line for a while as Huricane Lili is heading straight here! I only live 9 ft above sea level, so tomorrow I may be loading up the important stuff: my mini, my 10/22's, ammo reloading stuff, and this computer. For those of you that pray please do, and for the rest of you wish us luck.:D

I was living outside of Houston when Alisia <sp> hit & we were without electricity for ten days. No well water. The wife & kids I had at the time thought I was nuts, when it began rainning I'd grab a bar of soap & run outside to shower. It didn't take long for them to join me. I wish you the best of luck. Nature sucks sometimes.

Having experienced 6 hurricanes/tropical storms in 5yrs('96-'01) on the N.C. coast evacuation is the only sensible thing to do. Best of luck, you and your family stay safe.

I rode out Alisia too from Galveston county. I was only 20 miles inland. It got fun after the roof started to fly off. Get out and get out now!

Sounds like the wise choice. Mother Nature is more than a match for anything. Descretion is the better part of valor. Good luck!!

PSG1---Had a guy about ten miles down the road who had a house trailer surrounded by a bunch of tall pines. A tornado came thru & twisted off the tops of those pines & never even touched the house trailer. what a mess! A friend had a machine shop & behind it was a trailer park. A tornado blew out the side of his shop & completely demolished the trailers behind him. As I remember a young girl was killed in one of the trailers. I lost seventeen pines just from the wind, no tornado. I'd been thru a lot of typhoons in the Pacific & my biggest problem was keeping my family from loosing it. Let's hope everyone down there gets out alright.

I'm alive! :D Thanks for the prayers & well wishes. It was so late getting things buttoned down, and packed up we couldn't leave, so we just hunkered down. Lili hit a cold spot at the last minute, droping it from 145 mph to 100mph before it hit land. The eye missed us by 50 mi to the east, so wind was only 30-60mph here. Knocked down some trees, power lines, and a few tornados east of us, with minor flooding. We dodged a bullet. Am glad its over :D
