Thats the way it looks now but when it gets to the warm waters of the gulf it will strenghten to at least cat 1 hurricane. Key West is already getting people out and the storm could become stronger as it pass over the keys.

I predict another cat 4 or 5 storm by thursday hitting the gulf

I'll feel it here, but just the rain/wind bands, it'll miss where I'm at by about 125-150 miles fortunately. Offsett will probably get it pretty good. When the hell is this damn hurricane season gonna end? It's been brutal this year...

What happens if (I hope not) Rita hits texas and wipes out Galveston? What troops will respond to that? More Active Duty guys I suspect. Here is the bad news, its only going to get worse.

Therefore, for the remainder of the season, we expect an additional 11-14 tropical storms, with 7-9 becoming hurricanes, and 3-5 of these becoming major hurricanes. The expected ACE range during August-November is 110%-200% of the median.

then lets hope Texas is a bit more thankful than....



Don't now if this is true or not, but he left his entire name, phone no., etc on the bottom of the e-mail. If it's true, this one outraged person and justifiably so.





Subject: Houston generosity.

This is from a guy here in Houston that went to volunteer his time to
help the hurricane victims. It is pretty sad and disappointing to think
people could be so ungrateful.

SO I VOLUNTEERED..........

I thought I might inform the few friends I have on my recent traumatic
experience. I am going to tell it straight, blunt, raw, and I don't give
a damn. Long read, I know but please do read!!!

I went to volunteer on Saturday at the George R. Brown convention for two
reasons.

A: I wanted to help people to get a warm fuzzy.
B: Curiosity.

I've been watching the news lately and have seen scenes that have made me
want to vomit. And no it wasn't dead bodies, the city under water, or the
sludge everywhere. It was PEOPLE"S BEHAVIOR. The people on T.V. (99%
being Black) where DEMANDING help. They were not asking nicely but
demanding as if society owed these people something. Well the honest
truth is WE DON'T. Help should be asked for in a kind manner and then
appreciated. This is not what the press (FOX in particular) was showing,
what I was seeing was a group of people who are yelling, demanding,
looting, killing, raping, and SHOOTING back at the demanded help!!!!! So
I'm thinking this can't possibly be true can it???? So I decide to submit
to the DEMAND for help out of SHOCK. I couldn't believe this to be true
of the majority of the people who are the weakest of society. So I went
to volunteer and help folks out and see the truth. So I will tell the
following story and you decide:

I arrived at the astrodome only to find out that there are too many
volunteers and that volunteers where needed at the George R. Brown
Convention Center. As I was walking up to the Convention Center I noticed
a line of cars that wrapped around blocks filled with donations. These
where ordinary Houstonians coming with truckloads and trunks full of
water, diapers, clothes, blankets, food, all types of good stuff. And
lots of it was NEW. I felt that warm fuzzy while helping unload these
vehicles of these wonderful human beings. I then went inside the building
and noticed approximately 100,000 sq. ft. of clothes, shoes, jackets,
toys and all types of goodies all organized and ready for the people in
need. I signed up, received a name badge and was on my merry way excited
to be useful.

I toured the place to get familiar with my surrounding; the entire place
is probably around 2 million sq. ft. I noticed rows as far as the eye can
see of mattresses, not cots, BLOW UP MATTRESSES!!! All of which had nice
pillows and plenty of blankets. 2 to 3 bottles of water lay on every bed.
These full size to queen size beds by the way where comfortable, I laid
in one to see for myself. I went to look at the medical area. I couldn't
believe what my eyes were seeing!!! A makeshift hospital created in 24
hours!!! It was unbelievable, they even had a pharmacy. I also noticed
that they created showers, which would also have hot water. I went
upstairs to the third floor to find a HUGE cafeteria created in under 24
hours! Rows of tables, chairs and food everywhere ? enough to feed an
army! I'm not talking about crap food either. They had jason's deli food,
apples, oranges, coke, diet coke, lemonade, orange juice, cookies, all
types of chips and sandwiches. All the beverages by the way was put on
ice and chilled!!!! In a matter of about 24 hours or less an entire
mini-city was erected by volunteers for the poor evacuees. This was not
your rundown crap shelter, it was BUM HEAVEN.

So that was the layout: great food, comfy beds, clean showers, free
medical help, by the way there was a library, and a theatre room I forgot
to mention
Well here is what happened on my journey ?

I started by handing out COLD water bottles to evacuees as they got off
the bus. Many would take them and only 20% or less said thank you Lots
of them would shake their heads and ask for sodas! So this went on for
about 20-30 minutes until I was sick of being an unappreciated servant. I
figured certainly these folks would appreciate some food!!! So I went
upstairs to serve these beloved evacuees some GOOD food that I wish I
could have at the moment!

***The following statements are graphic, truthful, and discuss UNRATIONAL
behavior***

Evacuees come slowly to receive this mountain of food that is worth
serving to a king! I tell them that we have 2 types of great deli
sandwiches to choose from ? ham and turkey. Many look at the food in
disgust and DEMAND burgers, pizza, and even McDonalds!!!! Jason's deli is
better than McDonalds!!!! Only 1 out of ten people who took something
would say "thank you" the rest took items as if it was their God give
right to be served without a shred of appreciation!!! They would ask for
Beer and liquor. They complained that we didn't have good enough food.
They refused food and laughed at us. They treated us volunteers as if we
where SLAVES. No not all of them of course?but 70% did!!!!!! 20% where
appreciative, 10% took the food without any comment and the other 70% had
some disgusting comment to say. Some had the nerve to laugh at us And
when I snapped back at them for being mean, they would curse at me!!!
Needless to say I was in utter shock. They would eat their food and leave
their mess on the table? some would pick up their stuff many would leave
it for the volunteers to pick up. I left that real quick to go down and
help set up some more beds. I saw many young ladies carrying mattresses
and I helped for a while. Then I realized something?their where hundreds
of able bodied young men who could help!! I asked a group of young
evacuees in their teens and early twenties to help. I got cursed at for
asking them to help!!! One said "We just lost our ****ing homes and you
want us to work!!" The next said "Ya Cracker, you got a home we don't" I
looked at them in disbelief. Here are women walking by carrying THEIR
****ING BEDS and they can't lift a finger and help themselves!!

WHY THE **** SHOULD I HELP PEOPLE WHO DON'T WANT TO HELP THEMESELVES!!!!

I waved them off and turned away and was laughed at and more "white boy
jokes" where made at me. I felt no need to waste my breath on a bunch of
pitiful losers. I went to a nearby restroom where I noticed a man
shaving. I used the restroom, washed my hands and saw this man throw his
razor towards the trash can...he missed? he walked out leaving his
disgusting razor on the floor for some other "cracker" to pick up Even
the little kids where demanding. I saw only ONE white family and only TWO
Hispanic families. The rest where blacks?sorry 20% to 30% decent blacks?
and 70% LOSERS!!!!!

I would call them ******S, but the actual definition of a ****** is one
who is ignorant, these people were not ignorant??they where ARROGANT
*******S. The majority of which are thugs and lifetime lazy ass welfare
recipients. We are inviting the lowest of the low to Houston. And like
idiots we are serving the people who will soon steal our cars, rape,
murder, and destroy our city while stealing from our pockets on a daily
basis through the welfare checks they take. We will fund our own
destruction.

By "US" I don't mean a specific race, I mean the people who work hard,
work smart, have values and morals. Only people who want to help
themselves should be helped, the others should be allowed to destroy
themselves. I do not want to work hard, give the government close to half
the money I earn so they can in turn give it to a bunch of losers.

I don't believe in being poor for life. My family immigrated here, we
came here poor, and now thank God, and due to HARD WORK we are doing
fine. If immigrants, who come here, don't know the language can work and
become successful... WHY THE **** CAN'T THE MAJORITY OF THE HOMEGROWN DO
IT!!! If we continue to reward these losers then we will soon destroy our
great country. I just witnessed selfish, arrogant, unappreciative
behavior by the very people who need help the most. Now these same people
who cursed me, refused my cities generosity, who refuse to help
themselves are DEMANDING handouts on their own terms!!!!!!! They prance
around as if they are owed something, and when they do receive a handout,
they say it's not good enough! Well you know what??these types of people
can go to hell for all I care!
