Yeah the problem is really the tides, plus a full moon, plus all the rain, plus it combining with the other cold front, etc.
Our poor shore is being destroyed
KInd of reminds me of that book: Perfect Storm.
I know when Ike hit Houston, it was only a category 3 storm -- just missing cat 4 -- but the rain was tremendous. One of my friends never lost power. She was very popular for a week.
I was there for Alicia which was cat 3, but little rain and not as destructive as Ike. Still, I was one of the last to have power restored. A long, long week.
