  • A Hurricane is Heading Your Way

    After the hurricane hit land and wreaked its havoc on the Gulf Coast, the surviving residents are left to deal with the devastation that remains. Some residents evacuated, some stayed behind. Some were able to remain safely in their homes while others have had to be rescued. Those who sought shelter in the NO Superdome are told they cannot leave. Those who evacuated have been told that they cannot return to their homes in most areas.

    What would you have done? Would have evacuated the area? Sought shelter in a desiganted protected area? Or would you have remained in your home and hoped for the best?

    For me, this is a hard question to answer, unless of course I knew my home was facing a 100% chance of destruction. It would be hard to leave the perceived safety of my home and take my chances elsewhere not knowing what I would return home to find, if and when I was allowed to return home. The thought of being "trapped" inside a shelter and told I cannot leave is almost unbearable as I am somewhat claustrophobic. And to me, the living conditions inside the Dome right now sound much less appealing than those on the outside. Many of those who remained in their homes where there was little damage are already able to begin the clean-up process for themselves.

    With the exception of those living right on the coast who were guaranteed to get blown away, I can't say that I necessarily blame some people for staying in their homes.

        I'd start a poll on the Lounge...see what the majority didn't say, and go that route!

            We used to ride out the smaller ones. Never had any of the big ones come close to us.

              In New Orleans, you get the hell out. In a place that's not likely to turn into a goldfish bowl, I'd hunker down and get a good buzz.

                If I was single and without kids, I would probably ride it out on Bourbon Street just so I could have an interesting story to tell. I might even have been one of the surfers who had to be rescued.

                But considering I have a family, I would have evacuated.

                      Mick Jagger is in better shape than far too many NBA players. It's up in the air whether the same can be said of Keith Richards.

                        In the first place I would never live in an area like that but in the case that I did, I would leave and never come back. I never have understood the chances those people take by living in a hurricane possible area. You can lose everything you own, not to mention the lives of family. Dumb.

                          I'd board up and leave. Of course I'd be taking all valuables and paperwork with me, you never know what you will return to.
