    Don't know exactly where you live, but if you're on track for Beastie Part Two, get the HELL OUT OF THERE.  Heavens to Mergetroid.

    Agree about the landlord.  He or she is saving 100 bucks on plywood and losing all his or her rent-paying customers.  Not to mention just generally being a jerk.

      I'm in Beaumont, which is in the extreme southeast corner of Texas, yet is the northernmost settlement in Jefferson County, TX. We're well inland and on higher ground. I've asked the locals, and Beaumont has tended to, um, dodge the bullet since the 1920s. Of course, there is a first time for everything.

      There is a mandatory evacuation for the coastal town of Sabine Pass and there may be one of Port Arthur, which is not directly on the Gulf Coast, but rather on Lake Sabine, which is more of a bay than a lake.

      I just got word from my connections that the local gov't muckety-mucks have a meeting later today and will decide whether to evacuate Beaumont or not. If they declare it, we'll be saying "howdy" to Lufkin or Nacogdoches.
