I had to stay behind for Ike on the Texas coast. Except for the winds too high to stand in, the rain that came down so hard you couldn't see and it hurt like rocks, lack of power(no a/c), nowhere to get food(already stocked some) it wasn't all that bad. Of couse I stayed in a building that had with stood all the huricanes since 1965.

I had free roam because of my job, everyone else was urged to leave, it's now mandatory, and you wouldn't find me trying to get to the beach. There wasn't one anyway. The tidal surge moved the shoreline inland several hundred yards until it receeded. The damage was unbelievable. It took years to repair and some still hasn't been repaired.
