Thread: A moment for those poor people in Texas

    Unhappy A moment for those poor people in Texas
    ... watching on TV. Looks bad, bad, bad. Glad I live in tornado country.

    Just take a moment and pray/think about those folks in Ike's path.

    Peace,

    Hopefully things will work out for them. Choosing to live on the coast can be a great experience for the most part until something like this happens. I live in Florida and it is something we just deal with.

    I wish them luck.

    A decade ago I was living in a nice little condo on the beach on Destin, Fl. Paradise if there ever was one...... then the hurricane. Now I'm in a spot where nothing ever happens......... literally. (uhg)

    I live not so far from there. We got a little bit of flooding. They shut down Hwy 98 for a while.

    Good luck. My house still won't have power long after everyone else gets it though. Our powerline got knocked down completely by a tree.

    Ouch sorry to hear..... I have a few friends from Galveston and Houston up here... A couple staying at my house, they are so nervous to go home. Thats one feeling I'd never want to have.

    Looks like we're gonna have a slow day here at the dealership. My sales people are getting discouraged looking at the weather report.

    *Edit* Title.

    Yeah, lets be a little more sensitive on our choice of wording.

    Okay. Sorry about that. Around here, it's not that big of a deal. Smatter of fact, when used that way, it's really showing sympathy. Ah, dialects. You can hear the phrase here in the Midwest with Irish immigrants and on TV in Britain and Australia. Even the movie "Patton" used it almost 40 years ago in 1970.

    It's a big world, people.

    Maybe you should not have moved to somewhere that has hurricanes? Hopefully my gas prices dont go up.

    They went up about 48 cents/gallon here.

    Pah.

    I filled up the vehicles yesterday. :-)

    Via mobile weather.com and my iPhone I was able to track this storm as were being hit. Glad the fatalities were minimum, but hope we get some power soon. Otherwise we have a generator and my iPhone!

    I completely understand, you just have to keep in mind the many other members that wont. No harm.
