Well, I've just spent the past several (many, actually!) minutes tracking this storm's progress.
There STILL is no well-defined 'eye', which is really strange, but you can betcher sweet bippee that she is going to strengthen significantly now that she is once again out over open waters.
I said to Matthew East just the other day, "It looks like Houston is going to be on the 'dirty' side of this storm", and he agreed.
What's the 'dirty' side? It's the side that usually gets the most rainfall along with potential tornadic activity. We can use the rain, but I was sure hoping that it would not take a hurricane to produce it! Torrential downfalls are almost never beneficial.
Meanwhile, back at my ranch, I'm still waiting for ARS to come and see what's wrong with my AC. Sweet lady at ARS told me this morning that it would be after 12:00. Well, it's now almost 2:00, and they're still not here. More later.
