We're up to a category 2 so far

Category 2 panic that is.

I'm not talking about the folks along the Gulf Coast either.  No, thanks to the last debacle (Katrina) the Emergency Management people in Texas have gone completely bat shit crazy.   The list of "people in charge of something" who are running around like chickens with their heads cut off is growing every hour.

My own department (hours away from any coast, and further from NOLA) has called in overtime, sent them home, called them back, staffed extra ambulances and then sent them home.  We are now setting up to assist with busing evacuees through our town from the NOLA area.  No buses in sight, but setting up none the less.

I hope the folks that are actually in the path of the storm are doing more than we are.

This might be another long ride.
