They canceled all the storm warnings for Marco in MS. I just hope that people don't let their guard down for the next one heading our way.

Marco was a dud! Laura is moving westerly, things are not looking good for Houston. They are limiting water and BBQ at the HEB! It's bad when they restrict how much brisket you can buy!

Y'all hunker down! They are predicting Laura to be a Cat 3 when it makes landfall.

Living in the Midwest, I have no idea what it's like to live with a hurricane breathing down your neck so forgive me but rationing brisket is just plain funny.

Stay safe, Pale, and all the rest of you down there.

Only in Texas is brisket considered a hurricane essential!

projected Cat 4 a landfall slightly to the west of Cameron, LA. Meaning Lake Charles and Lafayette in direct path of the heavy east side winds and rain, with projected 14-16 foot storm surge (to put in perspective, Cameron, AL is 3 feet above sea level, so 14 feet means the minimal amount of buildings there are inundated). Good luck, folks...

The Capital One building in Lake Charles did not fare well in the storm. Fortunately, the forecasters had the storm surge wrong, not nearly as much horizontal water as predicted. We are back to humid and hot.

All of us on Galveston Island are breathing a sigh of relief, but our hearts go out to the people in LA, as we are fully aware of what they are facing after Hurricane Ike in 2008.

I have no idea, I'm not from the south, just had a few good friends that I enjoyed hearing them speak.

Language issue!

One of our Southern states, a trooper pulls over a pickup for speeding.
Trooper goes to the driver and asks, “Got any ID?”
Driver responds, “bout what?”
