To anyone here in the Gulf Coast Texas region.....stay safe, have a plan. To anyone here who has family and friends in this mess, stay strong and trust in them. It's getting real out here folks and it's supposed to be like this for a couple of days.

Nature really sucks sometimes. This is so sad. All those photos of animals:cry:. I hope all the Texas dromers are staying as positive as possible and getting help they need.

We are, I know here in Houston even with the deaths and the loss we mostly only think of each other. Almost if not all my friends here are trying whatever they can to help out. Brother took in a man with his two dogs, complete stranger because he got stranded.

I'm trying to convince my school principal on several things. Outside a major personal issue, I'm trying to see if we can raise money to help the victims.

Some of you may be aware of the organization Hoops for Hearts. Assuming I don't get my ass sued possibly, (:lol:) I'm trying to do something similar to it. We had a student in my grade who passed away five years ago from heart conditions; money made for the event dedicated to him went to the family and other victims. Due to this, I want to see if we can do something akin to it once more.

Regardless, I give my condolences for all those impacted right now by the hurricane itself.

So sorry about what is happening in your home, I can only imagine what it must be like for everyone.

My cousin up in Austin is actually coming down to help as a counselor, schools are gonna need a lot of help around here. I heard a bunch of Texas principals banded up to help out here. All of that aside people forget the trauma and stress people are going to have afterwards as a result of this, I know at the Psychiatric hospital I work out we're bracing for the massive influx we'll have here due to all of this.

Yeah, I think a lot of people are going to need mental help after all of this. It's good to see people helping out though.

All the eastern-ish Texans (and other areas impacted) here okay, I hope?


Hoping Irma doesn't take off in that direction. (Not that I want my coast over here to get it either. :teek:)

Someone needs to take Irma and shoot her in the back, no one needs that ex-jealous GF right now. :trolleye:

lol Personally I keep wanting to somehow reference TMNT's Irma in relation to it. :trazz: At best, it's untrustworthy like Nick's version.

Yeah, I made a TMNT reference to my mom the other day. I said, "Well, looks like April ticked her off and now she's gone full hurricane."

Beetlejuice reference would be cool though I can't think of anything off the top of my head.

Could go out there and make a Michael Keaton reference.....

My heart goes to all victims of Hurricane Harvey. Texas will take years to have full recovery.

I hope Hurricane Irma will not come. She is a small hurricane like that infamous Andrew. People told me horrific stories about him.

That's the only positive thing a disaster like this could bring: Many people helping each other. Before Harvey these people were unknowns, now they will be friends for life.

Yes, and it's nice to see people helping each other out. I liked hearing about the man who opened two of his furniture stores to people.

I'm really hoping a miracle happens and Irma takes her butt somewhere else....my prayers and hopes for everyone in Florida, the Caribbeans, Puerto Rico and everywhere this one seems to want to take a path. One major storm was enough.....

I don't understand all this blowback I'm seeing on, "Look at these crazy Texans going down the street and through the water holding their guns! Redneck douches!"

Are you ****ing kidding me? There are alligators everywhere now. You would be insane not to for that reason alone, let alone all of the other reasons.

Where exactly do you keep hearing that? I know I've heard of "Texan stereotypes" but being IN Texas I don't normally hear them typically.

People on Facebook sharing articles showing pictures of Texans carrying guns in the water, commenting on how stupid it is.

Weird, the only people I'm seeing get made fun of for being armed during the flooding are the White Supremacists who've deputized themselves as supposed peace-keepers.

And I'm pretty sure my version of FB is far more anti-gun than yours is.

They do know we had looters right? These guys mostly hit businesses but they were out there....and like you said Andrew the gator thing is a REAL thing everytime it floods here. Not only from the bayous either. For all the good that came out from our fellow Texans helping one another (and Louisiana, Cajun Navy rocks)....we did have some unsavory characters.
I also didn't hear too much about White Supremacists trying to be "peace keepers" right now...maybe in rural parts of Texas that were affected that might have been the case but here in Houston not so much (Houston is actually very very blue despite the rest of the state being predominately red)

Well... there is sort of a portion of gun enthusiasts who haven't exactly helped stigmas that are on some gun owners, far before all this... But at the same time, why even worry what people are saying. People who live elsewhere don't really have a real grasp on the challenges of a particular location/region, esp when things like this happen. The 'blowback' is because they don't live there and don't understand. And that can go both ways.


Too bad would be looters don't join the good side and instead just want to help people clear all the stuff out of their homes that they'll be getting rid of, and then ask home owners if they can have certain pieces they think might be partly salvageable... :tconfuse: They could probably get all the stuff they want and be a 'hero' for helping.

He definitely should get one for what he's done for the people of Houston.
