Hearing now that the second hurricane is projected to hit Houston area as a category 2.   Anybody have any thoughts on whether or not it will impact our area enought that we should consider leaving?

I just got out of a meeting with area emergency management and the National Weather Service.

 Until it clears the islands good, it is still up in the air what its track will be. It “could” hit Port Arthur as a Cat 3 and push a huge storm surge. But.... it may not and not just because they change but this one is giving different signals (my words, not NWS). Another conference tonight and one tomorrow morning. The one in the morning is probably really going to tell the tale.

 The problem always is the amount of time it takes to evacuate.

The only reason I consider evacuation is if the electricity goes out. Otherwise, I see no reason for the inconvenience. 

We plan stay and ride it out. Generator is ready if we lose power. If turns into a long outage and we run out of supplies. Then we will move to a more comfortable location where things are more normal. Friends north of houston, or family in Waco. 

Prayers for all to be safe.

Weather Channel currently has Laura hitting Lake Charles. It can still go further east or west though.

Only way I'd leave is if it's a strong cat 4 or 5. I stayed through Rita, Ike and Harvey. Trying to evacuate for one of these storms is a huge pain. The only people who need to consider leaving is if you're in range of the storm surge.

I wish we could get one of these storms during daylight hours. I'd probably sit on the front porch and watch it blow by then.

Play A took a turn for the worse. I completely underestimated this storm. Left late after midnight. No traffic, cool and quiet. Please stay safe my friends. Property can be replaced, homes repaired. Life is precious.

Stay safe my friends. 

Prayers for all of setx and swla.

Did any of y'all stay? I'm praying for anyone who is down there. Sounds worse by the hour. 

I stayed.  When it was 2 maybe to be a 3, seemed like a good idea.  Now that it’s a 4 working on being a 12, maybe not.   Going to be a long night.

Wish it'd hurry up and do what it's gonna do.

I swear The Weather Channel tries to scare everyone to death. It's gonna get a little rough for a few hours tonight, but most everyone should be alright.

Good luck guys, stay as safe as you can.

The Cat 4 eye has entered at Cameron.  Max winds 111mph (last report winds were 150mph).   Even the meteorologists are dumbfounded.   Diameter of eye reduced, as did the winds storms.   Est wind gust in Ltown was 100mph, now 80.  Ltown Rain est now at 1.89”.  Power of Prayer?   Natural phenomena?   Either way, good for all of us, so far.

They just said there are some 140mph winds, but some are higher up.  Also, around Hackberry, there are no weather sites.  Lake Charles is getting some right at 100, and the eye is still about 25 miles away.

Looks like we may have dodged a bullet compared to how things could be going. At least here in Silsbee it still ain't bad.

Still have power as of right now.

Still have power in Evadale.   Hope we can keep it.

    • But here is the thing.there QB is a freshman.but if u dont pressure him he can throw it. Debo #6 is young and didn't handle the blitz well.but if u give him time he isn't bad at all.
    • The Jasper job isn't for everybody. Expectations are the same there as they are at Newton and West Orange even though we don't have skins on the wall like those schools do. There was a lot of turnover for about 15 years in between Walkoviak and Barbay. I don't know entirely what those situations were, so I can't speak on that.  I think we're fortunate to have Barbay, though, because he and his family seem to like living in Jasper. We win at almost the same rate that we did under Walkoviak and I think we'll eventually win a title under him if he stays long enough and adjusts his philosophy enough to rally in games like the one we played against Carthage.  I'm not a coach at all, so take my thoughts with a grain of salt. I just want us to win like everybody else that has ties to the program.   
    • JD wasn't the QB then. He was the jv QB when they played Carthage. Dillon Sterling Cole and chase Rutledge was the QB. JD took over the next year after dillion left for Westfield. 
    • That's a good quote. I think I've miscommunicated my point: I didn't say PNG got any moral victory out of its loss. My point is that when we try to evaluate the strength of a team, the WAY a team loses can be indicative of future wins. For example: Nederland has often started out the season 0-3, only to go on to go undefeated in district. Their losses were still losses, but they don't tell the whole story. Nederland was playing good competition and at a point in its timeline where the X's and O's weren't working right, but used that to put things together down the stretch. See also: Silsbee the last two years. So while football wins are determined based on inches, per Mr. Pacino, I'd argue that PREDICTING future wins is based on a whole lot more.
