Much appreciated. The traffic is already at a standstill on the freeway out of town by my work. Florida is hurricane smart and we aren't nearly as experienced here in Houston. Hopefully we'll come out OK.

I wouldn't exactly say that we are hurricane smart....but after last year getting hit so many times, so close together...we're getting a bit better at it. I don't think we were really prepared with Katrina crossed over...but seeing what it did in New Orleans and how long it took for help...we were definately better prepared for Rita even though it just skirted us.

I just hope that people with the means to evacuate, do. Riding out the storm just is not a good idea. BUT....if you do...one little hint....fill your bathtubs and washing machine with water......you will need it to flush your toilets when you lose water.

I hope you're kidding. I live 40 miles North of Kema and still feel like I'm risking it by staying. If I lived in Kemah I'd be on the road already (sitting in traffic of course).

yeah, I'd say get the heck out now while the gettin' is good. I live on the north side in Spring, and I've got serious contemplations to evacuate. But if I lived in Kemah, it would be a no brainer.

Good luck, and be safe.

You are the in the storm surge for a CAT 1 hurricane. You should definitely leave or take the risk of never posting a message on this board again. Please learn from Katrina and get out NOW!!!!!!!!!!!

Best of luck.

I live in the Galleria area too and am wondering as well. I kind of feel that if you are questioning your safety then you should go especially if you have somewhere to go.

Thanks!

I had Sept. hurricane duty so guess what? I am at the BP refinery in Texas City until only God knows. I will be on duty for the duration throughout this ordeal. 1 operator and 1 supervisor on each unit in the refinery.

Maybe Rita would be our offensive line, hell she's run everybody off--LOL

Hwy 146 from Baytown to Texas City was bumber to bumper. They might still be here when Rita hits as slow as traffic is.

FWIW, we're in Clear Lake and still holding out on our final decision about staying or going, but if I'm in Kemah I'm already gone today, no question about it. But ultimately, its your call.
