Here in South Texas, we are under a Red Flag Warning. That means high winds combined with low humidity makes us vulnerable to grass fires.
And 48 hours ago, we were facing hurricane conditions.
The wind is actually welcome. It’s very hot here and the breeze is making it more tolerable. I put the last of my hurricane shutters away this afternoon and hardly broke a sweat. And this dry air is a good thing, too. It’s a big reason Rita is weakening.
