Baby, Please Don't Go
Don't pack the suitcases and SUVs just yet, Houstonians.
The Harris County's Office of Homeland Security & Emergency Management wants you to know they are not calling for evacuations at this time, no matter what those pussies in Freeport and the West End of Galveston are doing.
"If Hurricane Ike becomes a major threat to Harris County, officials will inform our residents and a decision for immediate evacuations would be ordered," the statement from the office says.
So hunker down, dudes.
