Rita is coming to visit.
This could be an interesting week. Rita is predicted to strengthen to a hurricane soon, then come across the Gulf of Mexico . . . towards me! Landfall on the Texas coast is predicted for Friday night or Saturday morning.
I’ve always wanted to experience a hurricane. But if Rita indeed comes all across the warm Gulf without any landfall, she could get quite strong. Category 3 strength I can handle I think. But any stronger . . . ?
Anyway, I'm going to beat the rush and buy some supplies today.
