Default I Like Ike -- NOT

LInk to Wunderground's collection of tracking graphics

Ike is looking to cause trouble for our Texas members or cause more trouble for NOLA.



The individual computer models don't exactly agree on where Ike is headed but they've got Houston bracketed.



This one is a big animation showing how "accurate" the models are

This one is even bigger, not as useful, but impressive.

All y'all stay safe -- please.

My colleague's sister has been evacuated from Turks and Caicos- apparently the whole island was evacuated (those who could afford flights that is- a lot of people had no choice but to stay).

She runs a small scuba business just off the ocean, and is expecting the worst when she returns.

Well, it should hit Rockport, Texas which is further down the coast from us. However, we're supposed to be on the dirty side and if it hits at a 3, we're in for some nasty weather, but that's about it.

Is it just me or does everyone take hurricane's way more seriously ever since Katrina? I dont rememeber anything like this for hurricanes like Hugo or Andrew back in the 90's.

Can't tell you what Houston did in the 90's. I do know that when Allison dumped 3 foot of rain on us in three days the city kinda WISHED it had evacuated, they were rescuing people from rooftops via boat and helicopter, hell, a newscrew ended up helping one guy. Our lesson is from Allison, not Katrina.

Not to sound callous or anything but the new tracking that takes Ike away from drought ridden central Texas is sad to me. We need the rain, and so far this summer it has only come with hurricanes.

This one was tracking straight for Austin up until yesterday or so. Now it seems we will only get the outside edge of the SW quadrant.

Yeah, but we need it, too. Our pine tree is dying of all things.

There wasn't as much internet access to storm tracking in the 90's that there is now. What was available was all geek-speak meteorologist jargon.

There was this kind of information available for the 2005 Hurricane season and Katrina and lots of doom and gloom for earlier storms.

Katrina just happened to be the big strom that fulfilled all the Doom and Gloom sayers dire predictions so she gets credit for the increased willingness to evacuate.

Seriously.

I want rain! Lots of rain! Oh and Ivhon, there will be rain, eventually. However it's usually after things have cooled down and we get a cold wet winter (ish) rain.

That does my lawn no good. Nor does it make me happy seeing grass growing in the middle of Lake Travis.

LOL... Zae, like I said, it depends on what you mean by "hit". We are far enough inland that about all we will be dealing with is the wind. They are predicting that it may move out of here fast enough to not even give us all that much in the way of rain.

Luckily it appears that there is less than a 10% chance it will move up to a Cat 4, and from the way the barometric pressure internally in the storm is raising and the fact that there is a dry air mass at the front of the storm cutting off its infusion of humid air, it may not even get up to Cat 3, although they are predicting a weak/low Cat 3 about 4 hours before landfall, and likely slipping back to a Cat 2 storm. We are expecting winds around 75 mph, with gusts likely up to 90-100 mph. Luckily our windows are required to be rated at up to 110 mph usually, so hopefully unless something decides to come crash into our windows, we should survive.

The key will be how quickly we lose power and Internet/TV, and when they get it restored.

Edit: And the party will likely be all day tomorrow, until my grandmother shows up at my house for sheltering...
