To My Sales Brothers and Sisters, and their Families and Friends, on the East Coast . . .

Here in Houston on the Gulf Coast, we get hurricanes every season except the last few.  We helped with the New Orleans aftermath of Katrina in 2005, assisting the survivors and absorbing here tens of thousands of citizens who were displaced from there--and then just three weeks later, we performed the largest (3million +) evacuation in US history ahead of Hurricane Rita, which actually fizzled and turned north with little damage.  The evacuation was poor, actually, and led to not only supreme changes for Houston in evacuation prep and paths, but also led to a model for the rest of the country.

For us in Houston, the most recent bad hurricane was Ike in 2008.  It hit Galveston square on and traveled north right up the Gulf Freeway (I-45) through Houston and into Conroe and The Woodlands.  Second most costly hurricane in US history.

Take care of yourselves, then, and I see from the news that many of you have apparently prepared well.  If it hits your area like Katrina or Ike did on the Gulf, however, then you will be surprised at the steps you must take to be safe.  Plan ahead, and don't stay near the water.  If you want to know why, Google "Hurricane Ike Galveston Bolivar Peninsula" while you still have Internet connection.  It's way too easy to underestimate such a storm, especially near the water.

And stay safe!
