Yep, so Hurricane Ike is rushing towards Texas as I type. I'm not in Texas right now, but the server running this site is. So just as a warning, if the website is down for a day or two, this is why:

Everything seems to be okay, I guess my webhost was prepared.

Living in Texas, I was very interested in the stories of the people who evacuated and those who did not. This morning on either CNN or the Today show, I heard the most amazing story of stupidity.

Three people decided to ride out the hurricane in a tent on a pier. Ike destroyed the entire pier other than the eight foot section they were on. (I guess luck and stupidity go hand in hand.)

The really funny part is at 1:00 AM Saturday morning, when the storm surge hit Galveston, they decided to call 911 and ask to be rescued. I guess they never heard the knocking on there door telling them a mandatory evacuation means no help is coming for those too stupid to leave.

About 13 to 14 hours later, a coastguard helicopter retrieved them.

I have two thoughts -


1. No wonder our taxes are so high. I wish the Coast Guard would have given them a $50,000 invoice.

2. Is it no wonder we deal with such idiots on Ebay, when people actually think it is OK to ride out a 20 foot storm surge on an exposed pier in the middle of the ocean.



Hope you all get a laugh out of this one!!!!

I have seen those waves at Galveston without a hurricane! Those idiots deserve to be
charged for their rescue.
