mellicious: pink manicure (umbrellas)

Exactly one TV truck on the Seawall this morning. Which suggests to me that the Houston media haven't gone on full alert about this yet. But....

Our forecast takes the center of the storm about 50 miles south of the Louisiana coast today, then inland into the upper Texas coast near Galveston mid morning on Tuesday. Squalls are beginning to affect the southeast Louisiana coast this morning, and will spread westward along the Louisiana coast during the day, reaching the upper Texas coast tonight.

That sounds, um, kind of ominous. We haven't decided whether to do the wait-and-see thing or whether to preemptively get the hell out (at least as far as Houston). Stay tuned.

I think I started reading your blog throgh Trexphile/Sheri's blog. I nearby in Jamaica Beach and am packed and ready to go to my Mom's in Baytown for the duration. Now I just have to convince the cat to get in her carrier so we can leave.

Here's hoping for the best!

Yeah, see, I live behind the Seawall so our decision is a bit different. We are still here, and are probably staying put unless things start looking really ominous in the morning. Then we might decide to do some last-minute fleeing. But I don't really think that's going to happen. It's well after midnight and the wind hasn't even picked up yet. It's really a bit odd.
