  • Hurricane Season Is Upon Us (already)

    I swear I heard on the news this morning that anyone in the hurricane regions are to be ready to live on their own for at least 3 days following a hurricane disaster as help may take that long to reach them.

    Anyone hear about this also?

        I heard today is day one of hurricane season for 2006.
        I suspect they're only going to get worse with global warming...

            Hard to believe that hurricane season is upon us again. So many people in the gulf coast region haven't even recovered from last years storms.

                There's a great column about hurricane season in the New Orleans Times Picayune written by my favorite columnist there, Chris Rose. Here's the link if anyone is interested:

                http://www.nola.com/rose/t-p/index.ssf?/base/living-0/1148969417194770.xml&coll=1

                He had a column a few weeks ago that was his commencement address to one of the Catholic girls' high schools entitled "Children of The Storm". Wow, was a good one. I have it if anyone wants to read it.

                I know my family in New Orleans is no where near recovered. Most are living in FEMA trailers or living on the 2nd floor while working on the first. Still, even 9 months later. And they are in better shape than lots of others. They just found another dead body the other day 5 blocks from the my childhood home. It's so very sad and as the sign said that we saw the other day......."Not as seen on TV".

                  I hope everyone makes it through this season ok. It seems like it was just over, and now it's starting again.
                  I'm out of bed, and dressed what more do you want?

                    Kat,
                    Im sure there are many bodies not yet recovered in all that mess. They found someone 's body here 9 months after the hurricane/flood. Sad that nobody missed that person or reported them missing. Turns out he was just an older man with no family.

                      Never thot that a hurricane would bother us here near Richmond since we're so far inland, but a few years ago Hurricane Isabella made us look like a war zone here! I will always get nervous now when one gets anywhere close!

                            Living in Houtson, I am very aware of the Hurricane season. I bought my flood insurance over 30 days ago. I now have 35 gallons of water on hand, and I am fine on food. I have a couple of camping stoves, and a gas grill. Oh yes, and I have already purchased by batteries. You just never know when they will hit.

                              I think it is smart to stock up on everything, I remember the probs getting gas for our generater one time ...lesson well learned ...stock up on gasoline! it always took 2-3 days for our local fire station to get ice and water to hand out and I will never forget how nice they were ...they set it up as a drive thru and even loaded into our trunks, we got extra ice once......still dont miss those times! hope it is a calm season and nothing like last year.
