Man, still not over LA, MS, and AL being devastated.  Now we have to worry about TX.  Hope this is the last one for a while.  A weather historian was saying yesterday that in 1915, both NO and Galviston were hit by catagory 4 huricanes.  Sounds like a 90 year cycle to me.   8)

Yes it looks to be a big one.  Coming to work all the roads are full with cars.  All the hotels and motels are full.  We sent a big train to Galviston but they said they didn't need it so we  took it to Houston where it was loaded with mostly NO people. 
    As far as the storm it is projected to go right over my house still as a tropical storm.  It is also suppose to stall.  I have to work stright thru with my next day off being October 4.  Unless something else happens then who knows when I will be off.

Take good care TC.  We'll just hope that the thing just dies before it gets up where you are.  Meanwhile, it looks as though Galveston, Houston and Port Arthur, Orange, etc. are going to take a hit.  Be safe and catch a catnap when you can.

It is good to have grass to mow, and a mower to mow it with, after a hurricane.

TC, any word on the bus fire that they are not sharing on the news?  Quite tragic when one realizes that those were the only lives lost.

Oxygen tanks are considered hazardous material for transport, because they can take a relatively minor fire and turn it into a major fire.  When I drove Truck, if I was carrying 3 or more  personal size tanks, Federal law required the truck to be labeled front, rear & sides with HazMat signs.  With that many tanks being used on the bus, the Oxygen level was probably 3-5 times higher than normal inside. 

I thought it was ironic that newscasters were saying that the Oxygen "burned" with an intense flame.

It was a very sad event.  I didn't go down there but was keeping up with it on the radio.  It is still under investigation and it is believed the brakes heated up starting the fire.  The people on board were unable to get out on there own and bystanders and the operator were helping to remove as many as possible until the tanks started going then it was beyond anyone to help get the others off.  A bus isn't meant to be in stop and go traffic.  The brakes are not designed to handle that type of abuse.  It was a sad day and my prayers go out to all involved and the families. 
      I didn't receive any damage at my house and only got about 2 inches of rain or less.  This morning it was a little windy but no rain.

I am glad to hear you are safe and sound.  It looks l like we up here in the midwest are about to feel the after effects of the storm.  Forcast for today and tomorrow?  Yep, rain and possible thunderstorms later tonight.

The investigation has gone from the brakes to the bearings.  It seems the wheel might have been locked up causing the tire to rub.  They had stopped and changed the tire about 75 miles before and the old tire showed signs of wear from not turning.  What ever the cause it was bad.
