    Brave it out? It's moronic rather than brave.

    Moronic isn't a verb.

    Ike's wind speeds have strengthened to 110 mph, which is the strongest Cat. 2 possible. Cat. 3 winds are 111-130.

    I just saw a report of 13 people being trapped on the roof of a home near Galveston. It's amazing the problems this storm is causing despite being hours and hours away from landfall.

    Starting to get some TS winds now at the house. Was outside until nightfall watching the clouds. Getting hunkered down now for a long night.
    Nothing to see here. Please disperse.

    deltachi, this may sound silly, but stay away from the windows.

    These storms can be mesmerizing to watch, seriously, but you never know when something can come flying thru. Is your house boarded up?

    We are away from the windows and inside now. No boarding - we will hope for the best. Interesting as we drove around the neighborhood today in that we only noticed a very few people boarding windows up.

    I think because this neighborhood is mostly newer builds (the last 2-3 years) and we are about an hour inland most people don't have the boarding up drill down yet. That may change after this one.

    It looks like Galveston is taking a pounding right now. Official landfall appears to be around three hours away or so.

    Breaking news on CNN that there is a reported levee failure in the New Orleans area.

    According to the Times-Picayune it's a levee near Slidell and repairs are underway.

    They're probably talking about Lafitte. There was a failure of a temporary levee there, but that area should be evacuated.

    Lafitte is on the westbank, is low-lying, and surrounded by water.

    Forecasters now expect Ike to make landfall as a Cat. 3. There's not much of a difference between 110 and 115 mph.
