For those watching the game from other states, landfall ain't the worst part. The projected, meandering, week long fucking cruise on the coast (yanking water up and dumping it, staying as a tropical storm the whole way) is the worst part. 30+ inches of rain PLUS storm surge PLUS soaked ground and high running rivers and bayous.

They're looking at floods all over the place.

Jesus. I just dropped another bunch of money on groceries -- worst case, I'll let me 21 year old kid come pantry shop when all this is over. :)

(I will say I envy a friend of mine his whole house automated hurricane shutters and NG generator that can power his whole house. I'm pricing both of those for next year)

Might not be for long. Houston just took the first feeder bands this afternoon, and the rainfall maps show ugly amounts of rain in the Houston-Austin-SA triangle over the next week.

Too much depends on where this thing goes. Haven't really see many storms that land and then reverse course.

I honestly never realized how close Austin and San Antonio were to Houston until looking at a map for this storm.  I mean, Austin to Houston is comparable to my place to Chicago. 

And here I was considering Austin as somewhere to move to if I could ever convince the husband to leave this crappy state.

Have the RV's "riding out the storm" from the coast been seen floating in the gulf yet?  why so serious?

I think it's "fuck moving to Austin," more or less.

Have fun kids. I had a nice chuckle listening to NPR interview the CC major and some other podunk 70k pop major talking about how nobody had left and they thought it'd be just fine, "God Willing."

The forecasted rain total in East Texas is 42 trillion gallons. This would form a cube 3⅓ miles on a side, containing 38 cubic miles of water. That's enough water to submerge the state of Massachusetts to a depth of 19 feet, or fill a Twinkie® 195 billion miles long.

I confess I sort of hope the storm intensifies in a bizarrely local way and wipes every structure in Von Ormy from the map while sparing all of its people, and then they're all forced to beg for help from the government.

We are going to get 3 FEET of rain this week.  Ah well, I'll be here in my tower. Hope the power comes on at some point.  Morat - we live in greater heights and I think our power is linked up with Memorial Hermann next door, so if you have a boat and need a place to crash at some point, drop me a PM.

Somewhere there is now someone actually trying to calculate how long a Twinkie that would be. And how much it would weight.

I know, because I had to stop myself.

Weak Cat4, but fuck....130 mph winds will fuck your day.

My new roof (per the updated city code) is 140mph roof, and I think it's time I couple that with hurricane shutters. As in "I want to hit a button and have my doors and windows seal fucking shut like a Vault.

I'm not sure about my garage door. I hear wind can rip those up.

Your garage is fucked. If you don't have a heavy door, the wind will pull that sucker apart, and then the space there leaves nice leverage for the wind to jerk that part of the roof off. Just plan on that thing being gone in a good storm.

I've heard people doing tie-downs and stuff, but I'll add "upgrade garage doors" to my lengthy list.

Least it's only a mild Cat 4 and didn't have time to build up a Cat-4 level storm surge. I'm not sure how much difference it's gonna make to the poor suckers about to eat it, but 130 beats 150.

No shit it's coming apart. The walls are often cinderblock, but the top isn't -- and it'll just funnel the wind. And also, it's got tons of heavy machinery on movable mounts, ready to fall.

He's talking about the storm stalling, but I can't see that happening.

Anyone know when the last eyewall replacement cycle was?

Washington Post had a story two hours ago of a guy who lives in Aransas Pass, just northeast of Corpus Christi, about 200 feet from the water, who is:

a) near-blind and 66
b) caring for his disabled 40-year old son
c) has no car
d) supposed to be on an evacuation list but nobody came for him
e) heading to the supermarket to see if he can get some canned food

Reporters tried to give him a ride and offered to pick up his son, but he refused, gonna to ride it out. I would assume they told authorities.

I don't think that guy's still going to be there tomorrow if someone doesn't come to get them.

The periscope guy is currently eating the dirty side eyewall. Highlights: Steel beams cracking, cinder block walls flexing, 150+ gusts...

edited to add: I think he's in the eye now.
