Living in Dallas, I can't get too much information except that we are going to get rains on Sunday. Problem is that we are supposed to come down to Houston tomorrow to do a pre-closing walkthrough on our house and I can't figure out whether to come down or not.
Are they talking about evacuating Houston?

Hold off on coming down.

No evacuations for Houston proper, and I don't anticipate any.

So, if you are evacuating, where do you go ? It appears Dallas is on its path after the landfall and probably San antonio is a safer bet.

Most < $125 hotels are sold out in san antonio for 12 and 13.

As far as inland impact goes, SA stands as good a chance of being affected as Dallas at this point.

I live in Cinco, my neighbor just came over and said her family will be evacuated to Baton Rouge by husband's company.

WTH? Who evacuates *to* Louisiana??? They're safer at home in Katy!

During Rita, I lived in Cypress... a one story house with an electric stove, bad roof and an over grown tree in the yard. I worried...

Today I live in Katy, a 2 story house larger than the "sticks" we call trees in the yard, gas stove, not worried.

I work at the local SuperTarget. Abslutely hillarious to work both the cash register and the returns desk. People are buying ungodly amounts of water, flashlights, batteries, we are "slammin" busy days before the storm at the cash register. Day after said storm (mud puddle) the returns desk is slamming busy with people returning batteries, flashlights, and yes water

Today the registers were slammed again. People please just keep your dang batteries! Something tells me I'll be busy at the returns desk Sunday

Nagin on Gustov: "GET YOUR BUTTS OUT"
