Hurricane Joke

Postby redtail28 » Fri Sep 12, 2008 11:12 am

During the last hurricane my wife and I where watching
our local weather man, He said to get ready that
we could expect 5 to 6 inches today.She jumps up and starts
shaving her legs. :lol:

And as the weather got worse he then said to expect
8 to 10 inches tonight. She then screams out from the bedroom

Cool, no jokes, but I shared them with a few dozen guys.

I'm currently embedded with FEMA USAR (Urban Search and Rescue), task force Bravo, which are a bunch of really cool guys. These are not the full time FEMA guys that everyone hates, they are local fire departments, search crews, EMS guys, rescue guys from all over the country that get activated for major disasters.

I got to Houston the day before the storm. Tucked 1000 emergency vehicles inside a huge hangarlike building, the water rescue guys stayed in the hangar during the storm. The door-to-door guys stayed in the holiday inn next door to Reliant Statium, which if you check the news, you can see that the roof was ripped off by Ike. I got to watch it first hand from the 10th floor. Sweet. That wind was blowing. The entire hotel was literally swaying. We managed to not lose any windows, but did lose almost all the tiles on the roof.

USAR work is crazy. We actually planned to put ourselves directly in the path so that we knew we could get to people right after the storm. A hurricane is a lot more fun to experience when your prepared for rescue work, and you don't actually need to worry about any of your personal stuff getting damaged.

Tonight I'm here in the Port Arthur area. We basically make maps for the rescue guys to follow. Maps with grid lines, gps points, etc really help when the street signs have been blown away, or under water. Lots of water. More wide reaching than anyone expected.

I'll post pics when I get back. Stupid me, brought the camera, but forgot the damn specialized cable that I need to hook it to the computer, and I don't have any other xD card reader.

Drink one for me! Not allowed on these missions.
