    When natural disasters strike any American city the response chain is bottom up. Meaning the local authorities should be the first to respond. New Orleans had a plan, but for some reason the mayor and governor of Louisiana sat on their butts expecting the federal government (which is always slow) to bail them out. You should be more concerned about the response from your local and state government before you worry about the federal government.

    I’m almost always concerned/disappointed about the government’s (national or local) responses – or lack thereof – to anything! So I’m going with mostly worrying about the weather and potential destruction factor and just trying to cover my butt.

    Jason my friend — there was a time when I didn’t feel the need to worry about the federal government. Now, I feel there’s little choice but to be involved and remain concerned.

    However – you certainly bring up a good point. Perhaps I’m being naive to think that things will be different for Houston — especially after the debacle of New Orleans?

    Well my friend, you can relax, Houston is not New Orleans. Unlike their city government, ours will enact the emergency plan they have in place if and when the time comes (I have faith in Bill White despite the fact I didn’t vote for him). Plus the mentality here is different than in New Orleans. There are more people who are self reliant than dependent on the government here.
