Hurricane IKE; What's the plan for Texas?

Hurricaine Ike

I have spent several days now preparing for this big boy!  Just today,  I worked taking care of the loose ends at work then, I  fought through the grocery store to find water and non-perishable foods to take along with me to wherever I could find to go. 

It seems all of the hotels are booked all the way up into Austin, TX.  as of vacancy in texas hotels


 I am the most prepared person on the planet for a hurricane, or at least in the top ten.    I was pretty alarmed considering what happened to my family during hurricane Katrina three years ago in New Orleans and South Mississippi.  Well like all unpredictable things; after the food, the gas, a generator, a portable A.C. several hundred dollars later this storm is  turning and now heading toward Galveston or Houston.Tracking hurricaine Ike

I am relieved because although I know here in Corpus we'll still get high winds,  lots of rain but it will be great not to get this storm head-on. (Sorry to my Texas neighbors, I'm not wishing harm to any of you.) 

Maybe I over prepared,  what are other south Texas residence doing to prepare?  FYI,  I have enough to go around for anyone who didn't prepare enough. 

Wishing the best possible outcome for all of us here along the coast!

They say there's no such thing as being Over Prepared!  I like that website by the way.  I've never seen that before.  Thank you and stay on we know it can always move.  Miami was ground zero a week ago!

Tiffany, I tried to talk my husband into going away, heading north or west until Ike is gone.  He wouldn't agree to it.  If it heads into CC, we will get "weather" but if it heads up toward Houston that would be better for us, but not for Galveston/Houston.

Garren...I know, I saw the videos of Miami!  There was a lot of flooding there; I was actually surprised since it was the outer bands of rain.  Amazing!  Well,  I know you all in Florida have certainly had your share of bad storms.  Was it there in Miami that the two people got swept out by the waves at night fall and never found until the next morning? They had to tread water all night but were alive.  I saw that somewhere this morning on the news, they were talking about the rip tides in Florida right now.

Shirley...yeah if it heads to C.C. you will be getting at least cat. 1 weather.  I was planning to maybe go to McAllen or somewhere down toward the Valley but then again, it could have just as easily headed toward Brownsville area.  For now I guess I will be staying put for now.
