    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.

    So that's what, 2 kegs?

    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.

    -- People sheltering at ground level at Galveston Bay when Hurricane Ike hits face "certain death," the weather service warns.

    came in e-mail a few minutes ago from CNN.

    Get out folks!
