The Non-Winter Weather Thread

Recommended Posts

I was listening to Abbott press conference Thursday, he.basically said "GTFO yall."

 

At the same time I know the stats related to people living month-to-month and cant imagine how disruptive this is.... evacuating costs money (especially since they claimed shelter capacity as 50k people),.losing a weeks pay cost money... I hope the death toll is only in the hundreds...

there is also the problem of where to go(and the dangers inherent in mass evacuations), sent the wife and kids off before and they got hit worse 200 miles north.

 

But certain locations need to leave or be ready for disaster....the suck continues to spread.

 

Maui sounds nice right now ,airports closed though :)

 

I'm doing relatively fine and folk are working together

Brought me to a question I never had before. Do people still have to pay rent/ mortgages in situations like these?

Yes in general the bills are still due unless insured

Can this damn storm just end?

 

apparently not for awhile, I'm hoping it doesn't regenerate much as it backs into the gulf.

Few things are more stressful than dealing with even minor flooding.  And few things are more frustrating than bailing out a property or navigating flooded streets and looking up at the sky and seeing the rain just keep pouring.  What's happening in Texas is just unfathomable.

 

I hope the storm ends soon and Texas gets the help it needs to recover.  I hope nobody else has died or will die as a result of it.  And I fear the day this kind of storm hits tidewater VA.  The entire region would be drowned.  It's got me spooked.  I will never try and brave out an evacuation.

I've never seen that much rain in such a short amount of time. People went to sleep dry and woke up with two feet of rain and still pouring, that is unfathomable.

FWIW, this is a good time for everyone to think about preparedness for you and your family. You don't have to go full-on doomsday prepper to give yourself a good chance of surviving something like this. As you said though, in general, it's best to unass the A.O. if you can.

Thank God.  You & yours have gone through so much.  Glad you're not in worse conditions, and I really mean that.
