Houston appears to be one big fender bender.

In Texas, driving skills are water soluble.

very heavy snow now in NOLA over an inch per hout at times

Here in Metairie, Louisiana it’s been snowing since 8:00 AM. It’s beautiful. I wish I was home to enjoy it but I’m at work instead. Snow is a treat for the kids but we’ve never learned to drive in it. Got to be careful going home.

OH NOES!!1!
SNOWS!!!1!

And from the looks of it, the government doesn’t even care! Send heaters! Send snowmobiles! These people will be inside all day and don’t even have decent 60” plasma TVs to watch! Send $2000 debit cards now!
Damn that Bush!

Can someone get me a twelve pack and a new flat screen. Do you think snow will hurt that?

This winter is going to be very cold and very hard on us in Galveston County. 50% of the homes in my little town were destroyed by Hurricane Ike. I am lucky that I still have a roof over my head, but still without plumping or heating. No help from FEMA and still no insurance money. Lot's of people still living in tents. Really not a fun situation. I don't understand why New Orleans Katrina victims got so much help, but those of us in Texas that got wiped out by Ike get very little help.

It is really sad to watch entire neighborhoods slowly disappear as house after house is bulldozed to the ground. There were 5 homes on my street and now only me and one neighbor are left. Where is FEMA? Where are the insurance companies? I've (at sixty) been doing manual labor almost every day since Ike trying to put things back together. Got my little business up and running in crippled mode. But the house needs more work then I can do alone. Where is FEMA? Where are the insurance companies? A cold hard winter is going to be no fun with no heat.

I also remember snow in the 80’s in Houston and some severe freezing weather as well (for that area). If my memory serves me right, it got down as low as 19 degrees.

Oh, my! That’s the kind of scene I’m looking at here in PA! In fact, some of our snow melted yesterday, it’s less snowy here today! Wow! That global warming has really fouled up weather all year round! ;-)

ROTFL! The place is gonna shut down! Thankfully, though, the area is mostly flat, so they won’t have the problem folks have, here in MA, of trying to get up and down hills on glare ice! That’s like being a pinball, getting bounced from one side, or one car, to another.

What is this white stuff, anyway?

In Arizona we call it "crystalized sunshine". :-)

yes and it's Baton Rouge's snowiest day since 1988:)

Sounds about right. That's when the last 'cold cycle' was ending. The warming started then, and went on until about 1999, then it started cooling again. Looks like the cooling will be bad for a bit, though, because of the lack of sunspots. The new cycle has had less than 10, and is almost a year long, and the longer the diminished number continues, the cooler it stays, here on earth.

Hold up. Have you been to New Orleans? Or are you believing the media when you say NOLA got “so much help”? It’s been 3 YEARS since Katrina (not 3 months, like Ike), and well over 50,000 homes are still uninhabitable in New 0rleans.

I promise you, NOLA has not received nearly as much assistance as we have been led to believe.

Two snow days in four years...

If this globull warming keeps on going, the glaciers will be overrunning us any day now.

Oh Louisiana got a ton of money. The problem is that it went to politicians who doled it out to bureaucrats so they could create committees to hire experts to write studies to submit to a panel who created guidelines, requirements, rules, and procedures for people who lost everything to abide by in order to protect the state from being cheated out of money by people by people pretending to have lost everything when in fact they did not. (breath) Then, they hired a bunch of appraisers who low-balled the value of a home so the homeowners would appeal the amount to another panel and the state then had to hire more appraisers, accountants, actuaries, and attorneys to testify that the state's amount was correct only to have said panel agree with the homeowner's appraisal. (breath) THEN, the state created another bureaucracy for the homeowners to submit their paperwork to, only to refuse to give the homeowner a check because the owner had lost some piece of paper along the way and didn't have sufficient information for the bureaucrat to determine the accuracy of the homeowner's file (sadly, the bureaucrat did not have ANY of the homeowner's paperwork in his files because that information is stored in a different department). When the homeowner returns after finding the paper, a new "public servant" has been assigned to his file and is unaware of conversations with the previous bureaucrat because no notes were taken and again denies the homeowner because of a different piece of missing paper. When the homeowner finally gets everything he needs together, the billions of dollars given to the state has amazingly disappeared. Whoda thunk?

Meanwhile, the state was cheated out of hundreds of thousands of dollars by people pretending to have lost everything, but did not.

After watching this happen to several people, I cannot understand why people want the government to run health care. The red tape put up by insurance companies was a pain in the rear, but it was far easier to negotiate than the bureaucracy set up by the state.

That’s just the first step. If you’re lucky enough to get a check from the state, they created another system a lot like the one I described to approve the homeowner’s rebuilding plans. After all, it’s the state’s money; they must make sure it’s spent appropriately and efficiently. (cough)

Because most of the damage here was a man-made event: the failure of the federal levees, for which the Army Corps accepted blame.

I am truly sorry for your situation in Galveston, but the circumstances are very different.
