I do wish you and everyone where Rita hits, good luck
I'd never compair storms.. unless they hit the same areas....
They compaired Ivan to Katrina, many people are on both sides of the fence... and over all most believe Ivan was worse... it was just the area hit... Orange Beach to Pensacola was not under sea level, but still managed to get the 25+ storm surge and the 20-30 foot waves.
Katrina's rain finally put enough strain on the levee's that broke them... and then flooded the city... *sad to say everyone was waiting for this*
And now Rita and Texas.... looks like the carrabean is seeing you their special marga'rita'
But seriously... good luck and stay safe... get some extra gas, water, and caned goods....
