Hey guys, any info on our company and plans for Rita? Supposed to fly to Mexico Friday afternoon. If things go bad, Rita is scheduled to hit Friday night. Don't feel like getting stuck in Mexico with the family in Houston.
Up pretty far north west, XJT ghetto north, but wondering if people have heard anything, no letters on ccs yet.
Thanks in advance.

A little bird told me we're going to have ARC's standing by. Possibly sending aircraft north if the storm stays on track.

The only leg I've got to worry about is a Saturday morning CLT-IAH to finish up my four day. We'll see how that works out.

I was at the Wal-Mart grocery store tonight, (Far NW Houston) and there was actually a run on the place. Panicked morons had cleaned out the canned goods sections and bottled water. I noticed a direct correlation to size also. The people with their carts full of hurricane supplies were so fat that they would:
  1. Float
  2. Not have to worry about starving for a long time.
A little preparation is laudable, but come on folks. We're roughly 75 miles from the gulf in my neighborhood. There's gonna be damage with wind and rain, but this isn't New Orleans.

What would you use to combat your SJS while cowering in the basement in the event of a large disaster?

Surprise surprise. Funny that you just posted something about SJS on a CHQ thread about 5 minutes ago. Your posts are worthless and one dimensional. Makes sense though coming from someone in management that couldn't make it past the private pilot stage of his flight training.

Gee Doug, let me see. I assume you're talking about a large-scale terrorist attack on US soil. If that's the case, and I survive, (There are no basements in Texas) I plan on being part of the new military/government ruling uber-class that will subjugate your freedom, rights, posessions and resources once martial law is declared and my reserve unit is activated.

All kidding aside, look at my profile Dougie. If you think I have SJS, you're sadly mistaken. More like NMLOTFPSITOOTFRQJIOI syndrome. (No-more-life-on-the-fricken-pager-so-I-took-one-of-the-few-retirement-quality-jobs-in-our-industry)

You take care.

No, you were inferring that I somehow have SJS. (Nice try) Concerning your looters question, come on Dougie, let's be serious. I'll answer that qustion if you'd like, but I think you're more than smart enough to not need a basic lesson on geography, human behavior, and urban/sub-urban infrastructure.

Working for XJT, you must live in one of the wards or maybe a trailer park?

If you get stuck in IAH, we're planning a hurricane party over at my place. Give me a shout if you get stuck here.

As for the people stocking up and preparing for the worst, give me a break... It took me an hour to get out of freakin' Wal-Mart last night. And all I needed was booze. At least there's no run on that....

Having lived in the Conroe, Baytown and Galveston areas for 17 years, the bigest problem with a hurricane inland is the tornados that spawn from the TRW+'s. The downed trees will take out the power lines. When I lived in CXO, I was on the same power grid as the hospital, and my electricity was out for three days. A lot of folks were out for three weeks. This thing will have hurricane force winds 100 miles from the eye, and it will most likely will maintain a level 1 until it reaches the Byran-College Station area. Most people in the rural areas require electricity to run the water pumps on their wells. If you have a generator, more power to you, as long as you have gasoline to run it. You'll need a few weeks worth.

I'm not my grandfather, sweating like a pig during the day, and taking cold showers in the dark sucks. I believe in my creature comforts.

The moral of the story (I love morals) is don't take this too likely.
