Hurricane Ike

Posted by: Dave In: Texas |Weather

UPDATE – Saturday, Sept 12th – We’re all fine here, just without power and water.  It’s like camping, except not nearly as much fun.

We are staying in Houston to ride out Hurricane Ike.  We have plenty of food, water, batteries, etc to keep us going.  I’ll try to take some photos or video of the events and post them at some point.

The latest models have Ike at a Category 3 hurricane at landfall hitting near the coast of Galveston, TX (just down the road).  Hopefully everyone has evacuated Galveston because the storm surge will most certainly flood portions of the island.

We will probably lose power at some point here in Houston, so my updates to this blog may be sporadic over the next few days.  Not that they’ve been regular up to this point, really.

Catch ya’ll later.

– Dave

P.S. – Oh, enjoy a little Scorpions & The Berlin Philharmonic playing “Rock you like a hurricane.”  Yeah, I’m probably not taking this as seriously as I should.

  • Dave: I think someone should make some dance music from those "WHOAHs."
  • epiphenita: Oh, Dave. That was tonic to my soul. Perfect. I vote for an exorcism.
  • Dave: Hmm, looks sober to me.
  • Scott: I'm thinking that the guy with the hat might have had a drink or two before this picture was taken. Just a hunch...
  • Scott: There's a roleplaying scenario just waiting to be written based on these pictures. :-)


Stepping over the steaming pile of reality. This is one man's journey into the absurd.
