  Music for Riding a Storm Out?
bout to sit down to 48rs in the house, located in west houston.

unfortunately i keep thinking of REO Speedwagon "Ridinng the Storm Out", but God they suck.

Maybe some Doors, good mood music. Once it passes, I'll probaby put on some mid 60 beatles. Anything I should consider?

(got ray charles on for now, probably go to something else now that a purty day is starting to get ugly)

Raquel maybe you should get your butt down to your parents' place or your friend's house and dig in instead of bumping your gums here. Your hot air would be quite at home down there.

west side of houston is just fine. i unplugged everything last night as it was rolling in, but we never lost power (!), and i don't think i got even 1" of rain. wind gusts can be heard, but slept like a baby. as did my brother (10mi east) and parents (20mi north). took a look around this AM outside; not even 1 tree branch down on my block.

these houstonians should be ashamed of themselves: first they rush to evacuate unnecessarily, and now the news is showing cars backing up on INBOUND traffic (i.e. returning home), when the mayor is on every local TV / Radio station begging people to stay away a few days so as to give EMT room / resources to work unobstructed (there's still winds up to 75mph in select areas of town, with obvious attendant risk to motorists). but no, houstonians got to rush back now that their own personal asses are not in danger, to hell w/ those poor folks on the LA/TX border who need the real help.

raquel, you really should get a grip. not all people share the same risk in a hurricane. for those with a marginal risk, such as myself, i and my fellow low-risk citizens are a menace to those who are at risk. i'm not making light of a hurricane; i am trying to clarify that there is a stratification of risk that people face with natural disasters, and for most in houston, ESPECIALLY those on the NW / W side, it was marginal. coastal residents anywhere in LA/TX suffer a much greater risk than i, and rightly should evacuate, and not be interrupted or obstructed by pansy-assed sheeple that evacuate unnecessarily. once you grasp that point, you'll understand my position, and why my wife & i had every intention to ride the storm out, and make the best of it (steaks on the grille tonight, windows unboarded tomorrow).

(fwiw, we had planned to evacuate at 3am Fri if the storm turned towards us, but with the day's data under analysis, it became a 3 sigma event)

live led zeppelin (how the west was won) up soon. great live set. once my wife gets up (she barely slept, but that's routine) i may put on Sgt Peppers & see how she takes "lovely rita" & SRV "texas flood"----almost a palpable sense of relief on the block / local TV at this point. the bitch rita finally came in, but really, she sputtered out quite a bit and did everyone in her path a great favor by losing a LOT of steam over the gulf coastal area and turning east (though i have a hard time in taking comfort in her turn, as my benefit is someone else's loss).

this could've been a lot worse; what i fear most now is not for rita fallout, but for rita to deflect attention from those poor people in NO who lost everything, and still have nothing---not even time on the evening news any longer.

totally w/ you on the pet issue. my wife & i have 2 cats, and it was never a consideration---we share the same fate, no matter what. does it color our actions? sure! we lectured a neighbor before she (unnecessarily) evacuated that she better have water available for her dog and she was welcome to some of our bottled H2O if needed for the pup.

any person who'd leave a pet in a disaster is an animal themselves.

Hey Rhyno, glad to see the worst avoided you.

In celebration, how about Peter Gabriel's "Here Comes The Flood"?

My critters are family members. When I took them into my family, I also took on the obligation for their well-being. Period.

thinking about this topic again...

local record store (the vinal edge) sent an email & rec'd 'hunky dory' by david bowie

i'm going for live dead, one from the vault.

anything else? sure hope i keep power, else its onto the guitar by candlelight (sure wish i had an acoustic right now).

(pray for those on the coast who stayed. they're goners)

Galveston Flood by Tom Rush seems to be the obvious choice. Hopefully these lyrics don't come true. Good luck to all in the path.

Yeah, well "Riders On the Storm" would seem to be the answer.

Try "Fear Of a Blank Planet" by Porcupine Tree maybe. The hurricane may not seem so bad in comparison.

By the way, I really do like that album....but the subject matter is very dark and depressing in nature.

I lost $45,000 in gear to Katrina---ever see a pair of JM Lab Alto Utopias with toxic water above the Beryllium tweeter? MC 501s with 5 ft. of water covering them?

Glad to hear you had no damage. I had about $30,000 in damage from Hurricane Gustav a few weeks ago. i guess there goes the new MC 2301s I've been eyeing. Allstate only covers so much.

You've had more than your share of misfortune. My heart goes out to you. Those are terrible losses, both financially and emotionally.

I would listen to Dear Prudence from the White Album. If that was the last song that I ever heard then I would die happy. If I got scared then I would listen to Silent Night.

Cajunpepe if you are ever passing through the New Orleans area get in touch and give a listen to what replaced my Katrina lossed system.

We are riding out the storms with some great classic rock and roll.

Well, I, too live west of Houston in Katy. I did receive some damage (all electronics are OK) but nothing that I can't deal with. I did not board up - I could feel the storm wanting to suck out my windows. I lost power 9:30 Friday night and was not able to follow the storm. At that time it had not made its northerly turn and we were expecting the worse. I kept in touch with friends in Dallas hourly on the track of the storm. This storm could not have taken a worse to harm Houston - right up the ship channel. A Cat 2 (high)/3 (low) with a Cat 4 surge. I was without power for only 21 hrs.

Rhyno - would just love to audition you sytem sometime. A fellow co-worker of mine just sold one of Bob Crump's designed preamps. A very nice piece of equipment but out of my range of affordability. Glad you are OK.
