Dawn, Friday Morning
As it’s becoming light this morning, you can see the high clouds of Rita way off to the Northeast. If you were isolated from all communication, you wouldn’t know it was a hurricane.
You would know at the beach, however. The waves offshore from Corpus are 13 feet high! I wish I could go to the beach to watch (It’s probably too nuts to surf.), but they probably still have the island blocked off.
They are only predicting a few clouds and the usual breeze here. I might even take some hurricane shutters down as I like looking out my windows.
Do pray for those in the Houston and Port Author areas and for those on the roads. It’s a bad situation out there.
