Bingo.

Come on, people, we've all seen this song and dance before. The storm will move through, residents will break out the chainsaws to cut up the downed tree limbs, the waters will drain, and everything will be back to normal within a day.

This is not worse than Alicia. The center of the city will be fine.

I think that is highly irresponsible. Nonetheless, durting Alicia we didn't have powr for darn near a week, among many other issues. This storm also is packing a more spread out punch so inland areas may experience weather at least as bad, and maybe worse than Alicia.

ESPN radio is reporting that the game will be here Mon night if it can't be played Sunday.

I remember Alicia vividly. We just finished the last of the repairs from Rita damage this summer. I guess that is a good thing as we might have to do it again.

On the plus side, I'll be at the game if I have to swim there.

Everybody is just regurgitating the report that came out in the paper this morning.

If there is a freaking 16+ storm surge that hits Galveston bay straight on, I just have a hard time seeing how the Texans could have a game even by Monday.

I'm just some guy on an internet message board, not an emergency management official. They're doing their jobs, but it's my opinion that most of you are overreacting. We're discussing the likelihood of the Texans-Ravens game being played, and I think you guys are in media frenzy mode.

+1. This is a pretty serious storm that very well may get even more dangerous as it approaches. Any thought of playing this game on Sunday in Houston should be scrapped.

Okay, I have seen posts and a report on CBS sportsline.com that their is a chance the game MIGHT be moved to Atlanta. If this in fact is the case (i think we'll know by 4PM) how would someone like me, living in Georgia, aquire tickets. I'll throw on my Ryans jersey and scream my ass of for the team...

Oh hell no... if it is held in Atlanta and not here in SA.... I just dont know what id would do.. scream after loosing Texans radio here in SA and an organization that really doesnt care about the largest non-houston market in Texas. I would be really upset. Like a punch in the gut

Over in Westbury (not far from the Dome at all), we were without for closer to a day and a half.

I lived about five miles from the Dome in '83. We lost power for maybe half a day.

Has anyone considered just HOW IRONIC it would be if they couldn't get power restored to RELIANT stadium by Monday?

:hmmm: that's interesting. Did not know that!!

Anyway, the point is that downtown Houston to downtown Galveston is only about 50 miles. Also the last time I checked, Galveston Bay is connected to the Houston Ship Channel which goes most of that 50 miles to inside the 610 Loop which then is connected to Buffalo Bayou which meets White Oak Bayou near the Main Street Bridge in downtown... Point being, we are essentially on the coast, we are not 200 miles inland like say Austin...

When did water start flowing uphill? It's ridiculous to say Houston is essentially on the coast. The risk of flooding is determined more by rainfall than storm surge. As long as Ike doesn't stall like Allison did, they'll get the game in on Monday.

This storm surge could be close to Katrina's IMHO. If nothing changes this is a VERY dangerous storm because of its huge wind field of max winds. Definitly more dangerous than Gustav. But that'S just my opinion.

INLAND FLOODING POTENTIAL

I've had a lot of questions today about the potential for inland flooding, especially if the surge pushes water up the bayous rather than allowing them to drain.

Here's the response I received from the Harris County Flood District, which maintains the area's bayous:

If we experience storm surge, the bayous that would first be affected are those adjacent to Galveston Bay: the Galveston Bay watershed, Clear Creek, San Jacinto River and Cedar Bayou. Depending on how great the surge is, other channels that could be affected are: Houston Ship Channel, Armand Bayou, Goose Creek, Vince and Little Vince bayous and lower Buffalo Bayou.

Just so you know, a common myth about storm surge that we hear a lot is that a storm surge will handicap our bayou system's ability to drain. Actually, the majority of the bayous in Harris County will continue to function effectively during a storm surge. Most of our creeks and bayous are upland and drain by gravity.

Because of their natural slope toward Galveston Bay, a storm surge caused by a hurricane will not impede this process, as water will always flow downhill. Of the roughly 2,500 miles of channel in Harris County, only a small portion located near the bay will experience a limited ability to drain during a storm surge.

Furthermore, there is a gap in time from when a surge occurs and when rainfall in our area eventually drains into the bay. The storm surge occurs before and during a hurricane's landfall. By the time our area's rainfall drains through creeks and bayous to the bay, the storm surge will have receded.

Given the expectation that most areas will receive 2 to 4 inches of rainfall, and that isolated totals should only reach 10 inches, I do not anticipate significant inland flooding problems at this time.

The problems should be along the coast, and they're potentially very bad.

ASTROS SERIES WITH CUBS TO BE POSTPONED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



"ST. LOUIS -- The Cubs' weekend games in Houston against the Astros are expected to be postponed, and the Cubs will head back to Chicago after Thursday's game against St. Louis to avoid Hurricane Ike, which is churning in the Gulf of Mexico and heading in the direction of Texas.

The Cubs and Astros are scheduled to open a three-game series Friday at Minute Maid Park. There was talk about having the Cubs and Astros play a day game Friday instead of a night game, but all plans are on hold.

The Cubs expected to make an official announcement prior to Thursday's game against the Cardinals. The Astros will make an announcement soon, an MLB official said."

It's been my experience. As a former south Florida resident, I've been through my share of storms. Down there everybody knew the routine, and everything was pretty much back to normal a day or two later. The Houston experiences have been similar, but with about 1,000% more freaking out, and more flooding.

It doesn't take that long for the power companies to make repairs and restore power downtown(hell, reliant has extra incentive to get it back quick). A tree is not going to fall on Reliant's roof. The levees aren't going to fail. Why can't we play Sunday?

I hope its monday... my son's birthday. He is a good luck charm for the Texans. When i first brought him home, he was crying during the Texans game at KC and I picked him up and walked into the room and at that point Marcus Coleman picked off a pass an ran 102 yards for a TD. If its on his b-day it may be good luck for the Texans.

Head coach Gary Kubiak

(on any changes for the game on Sunday) “No, not that I know of. We are just approaching it like we are going to play. I think we are like anybody else, concerned about this thing and how it’s going to be. But we haven’t been told otherwise so we are preparing as if we are going to play.”

Hear ya and understand. I bought 6 tickets to the Astros scheduled for Friday and Saturday months ago, and then I have 6 season tickets to the Texans.

It looks like $600 is gone, down the drain. But, considering what people are going through in Houston living through this hurricane, it really is inconsequential.

Wishing the best for everyone in Houston and surrounding areas.

I will use Roger goddell's words

We’re looking at alternatives if the storm is severe enough that it would prevent us from playing, whether that’s damage to the stadium, or fans not being able to get to the stadium, or whether, frankly, there’s just higher priorities in that community than playing a football game. We understand our place in the community, and we understand the first priority is public safety. We would not do anything to stress emergency workers and law enforcement workers from doing their job.”

Probably the best thing to do is play these games later after Ike has passed and the damaged is assessed. I am talking about the Astros and the Texans.

People (including players) putting there lives at risk for a game just seems pointless when the games could be played at a later date.

Besides, more fans will be there if played at a later date anyway.

I bet they will reschedule.

Further, you are assuming once this storm blows through, everything will be just fine to hold and play a game. In addition, you are assuming there will be enough fans to attend to make it worth while.

There's storms. And then there's STORMS.

We don't know which one this is going to be. When they start talking storm surges like Carla (http://www.wunderground.com/blog/JeffMasters/show.html), that is outside my frame of reference as someone who lived on the coast and in Houston for many years.

If Houston gets a direct hit with significant winds, we could be without power for days into weeks.

This is a large freaking storm. Bigger than Katrina. If people get in trouble,it's going to be a while before the storm clears the area to go help peoples.

If the NFL were smart they would set up a test in this type of situation where a game is moved to primetime on Sunday or Monday - live stream it on the network's site that lost the broadcast. They can easily move their sponosrs over there and they would have no problem.

Give it free, of course, but request a questionairre to be filled out about the experience. Win win for everyone.

So I'm getting conflicting info here. Some are saying it is going to be on ESPN2 and Direct TV. But then I read in the Chronicle that it will not be shown on neither of the two.

Be careful out there.

Hope they're paying you doubletime
:money:

Thanks. I am going to try to be carefull but they are talking about a 20ft storm surge and we already have some streets that are flooding out with the storm still a good ways away. It could get hairy around here before tomorrow afternoon.

I don't want to rain on anyone's parade, but with the intensity and the path of the anticipated storm, what makes you feel secure that there will be electricity, land line telephone or cell phone sevice to receive the game? That question hit me as a very realistic concern..........more realistic by the hour.:headhurts::mcnugget:

I live in san Antonio. I emailed Houston Texan Radio 610 yesterday and asked if it would be live streamed on the net and today their reply is, "Sorry, but we are only allowed to stream 4 games this year and this weekend's game is not one of them." So live stream radio is also ruled out. If I remember right Houston is still in Texas right......? lol

You must be a rookie in more than one way to write that last statement. I'm a 1st responder...............the impact of this storm here in Houston will not begin to be felt until after midnight. I would hope that you have no one that depends on you acting in a responsible manner. They may not fare too well.

I was going to email my tickets and glad I did not as I do not see how they play on Monday given the early looks of Ike's impact. However, a football game may be a welcome distraction for Houstonians.

Lost power for about an hour. Absolutely no wind, rain, anything when it went out.

Back on for now.

According to a rep from CenterPoint Energy, the medical center and downtown are still with power because those areas are serviced by underground power lines. The areas serviced through overhead lines are almost all without power.

Reliant Stadium should have power, so I doubt the power issue would prevent the game from kicking off. Other concerns, perhaps, but not the electricity.

Just now reading McClains blog and he mentioned the possibility of the game being played in Atlanta. If thats true, its a crock if you ask me, clear advantage to the Ravens not having to play in front of a hostile crowd. The should just make it a bye week for both teams and figure out something from there. The Texans shouldn't lose a home game because of mother nature.

I'll bet that doesn't happen. Just a hunch, nothing more. It shouldn't happen either for the reasons you mentioned. It's not like the end of the season with little wiggle room.

It's a bummer not only because that we will not play but we will not have a home game until Oct. 5th against the Colts.

Just got power back on here in cypress and wanted to check in and see how the folks on the board were doing! There sure was alot of BS and Bravado being spewed on this board prior to the storm and was wondering how those who doubted what a ***** mother nature is have faired?

We didn't get anything. I thought since the storm was so wide we would get some high winds and rain but nothing.



You know Tina took a lot of shit from Ike and so did Houston(people and sports teams) and surrounding cities. Well you know what Tina did she recovered, made a comeback and hit the top of the charts. I'm hoping we can do the same for our communities and our sports teams.

Go Houston and Go Texans!

I'm sorry if this comes of as being insensitive, but grow a sack. Most of us have lived on the coast for all our lives. What happened with Katrina sucked but we have faced so many hurricane warnings and threats that it is just a part of end-of-summer. Yes Katrina was bad and Ike looks bad as well but we can't act like the sky is falling on every single storm that may come within 200 miles of us. If you don't like it MOVE AWAY FROM THE COAST

Now with some hind-sight I want to let you know that this post pissed me off when I read it a week ago. I was too worried about how to take care of my family as I knew that a hurricane was bearing down on us to respond to it. I'm still without power at my house in NW Houston and I'm a bit aggravated that it's been a week pretty much to the hour that I have been knocked out of power.

Your comment was incredibly insensitive and I hope you feel like a douche for posting what you did. If you want us all to move away from the coast then guess what, there will be NO HOUSTON. No Houston means NO HOUSTON TEXANS!!! I can only hope a natural disaster doesn't strike you and your family up in Austin forcing you to live a week or so in the summer without power. But if it does, grow a sack. Try to show some compassion to the city of the NFL team you claim to support.
