People sheltering at ground level at Galveston Bay when Hurricane Ike hits face "certain death"

People sheltering at ground level at Galveston Bay when Hurricane Ike hits face "certain death," the weather service warns.

There is no disputing that fact.

Here are some photos of Holly Beach, Louisiana before Hurricane Rita wiped it off the map in 2005. These photos I got from the internet.

Here are some photos I personally took flying out to my job offshore days after Hurricane Rita leveled Holly Beach in 2005. Pretty grim. The photos don't convey how devastating it looks seeing it with your own eyes.

Fortunately there was no one in Holly Beach when the 20'+ wall of storm surge slammed into it like a bulldozer on steroids. Only a fool and an idiot thinks they can survive something like that. Stupid is as stupid does. Anybody that scoffs at evacuating gets what they get.


"Credibility in immigration policy can be summed up in one sentence: Those who should get in, get in; those who should be kept out, are kept out; and those who should not be here will be required to leave."

"...for the system to be credible, people actually have to be deported at the end of the process."

US Congresswoman Barbara Jordan (D-TX)

Testimony to the House Immigration Subcommittee, February 24, 1995

Take a large, almost round, rotating sphere about 8000 miles in diameter, surround it with a murky, viscous atmosphere of gases mixed with water vapor, tilt its axis so it wobbles back and forth with respect to a source of heat and light, freeze it at both ends and roast it in the middle, cover most of its surface with liquid that constantly feeds vapor into the atmosphere as the sphere tosses billions of gallons up and down to the rhythmic pulling of a captive satellite and the sun. Then try to predict the conditions of that atmosphere over a small area within a 5 mile radius for a period of one to five days in advance!

Who would build a house, let alone buy one on a pancake flat strip of land in front of the sea in an area of high risk of flooding...

I have no time here, but there will be some people [again] who won't follow the mandatory evacs, and despite emphatic warnings will try and ride it out will be stuck waiting to get rescued by some other people risking their own lives to save their idiot non-evac butts. Evac provisions were made well in advance by the State.

I'm just praying for those who ignore the warnings and those who are devestated along the way.


Life's just a crazy ride on a run away train

You can't go back for what you've missed

So make it count, hold on tight find a way to make it right

You only get one trip

So make it good, make it last 'cause it all flies by so fast

You only get one trip
