Im 2 1/2 hours inland (Lufkin) and the traffic here is nutz!

Our company has a huge plant in Freeport. They're scrambling as I type to get everything they can secured. I'm on the east coast, but I'll be keeping a close eye on this one.

Can you blame us? We have no idea how to react to severe weather. No ice, moderate rainfall. Normally Louisiana is our hurricane magnet. That's why we never took their land in the 1800's.

Yeah, I just got off the phone with my dad and he said that it would be more like a regular bad storm than a hurricane.

Storm or no storm, there will be a drunkard on the balcony yelling at the sky.

We're ok here. Lost power for 36hours > that was hell!

Took a few pics to share



Just getting started


Fence is Doomed!!


Not much left


See ya Fence!


Poor truck! (Not mine)


Another view of the dead fence that we park by daily.


After the storm


This tree fell the RIGHT direction...In front of our building!! A dude on a motorcycle actually hit this tree and went FLYING off hit bike. The power was out and the roads were totally dark . He was hurt, but drove the bike away.


Massive tornado hit down 2 football fields away from us. Took this building OUT!



I could drive around and take 1000's of pics like this
