    Some people lived in their cars for a couple of days or more after the Ike fiasco. Rita was similar. We stayed in place. No power for three days so no AC or CPAP. Did have food and water. Just lost a lot of sleep.

    Gasoline is going to be at a premium once people get out again. All the Texas coast refineries are closed, stations are out of gas and employees can't get to work anyway. We're trying our best to conserve what we have.

    The Cajun Navy Responds To Houston

    In a Facebook post from Monday morning, August 28, the Cajun Navy said:

    "If ANYONE is willing and able to start mobilizing towards Texas with equipment- surface drive, flat bottoms, air boats etc to start heading towards Pasadena Texas, the central command center is staged at Academy sports and outdoors at 4627 E Sam Houston Parkway S Pasadena TX 77505.”

    If anyone is stranded and in need of rescue, or knows of someone, they can post information in the comments section on the group’s Facebook page or Twitter account. All life-threatening emergencies should still be reported to 911.

    He had the right idea. Cats 'n dogs have it a little better than humans as far as food. Lotsa dry-food selections.

    I'd shop for water, peanut-butter, alcohol (for sleep-assistance too), jerky, vitamins, and coffee/tea dipping-pouches... don't waste space-and-time going with anything else.

    They've already started jacking up the price around here, even though we have our own refineries on the river.

    It's heartening to hear about pet-rescuing armadas from across the country, sending supplies down... and shipping animals back in the vehicles, for foster/adoptive care.

    As for horses and cattle, a huge majority are momentarily safe... but detached from familiar homesteads.
