If TD13 keeps drifting west, I can't really claim to be ignoring it if it is going to miss me by that much... Wait, TS Laura. If TS Laura keeps moving west...

Current projection says 5-10% chance of TS force winds in 5 days. I'll wait until Saturday night before I get really nonchalant about it.

Yeah, Higgy, bring in the patio furniture and the grill. It might not be a wild ride, but it won't be boring.

My 85 year old mom lives in Houston, making plans to get her up to Dallas. Of course she’s stubborn. Her and my sisters all in Houston went over a week without power during Ike

No tropical storms but I just left San Jose moving some of my stuff back from my work apartment. Since business is slow right now, no need for an expensive apartment.

Anyway, we had a freak lightning storm earlier this week. If anyone knows California in the summer, it's a tinderbox ready for a fire. California could probably use a tropical storm or two about now...

Ugh... We'd be happy to share! We're at that point of being sick & tired of the constant rainfall. It seems like it's rained some every day for more than 6 weeks.

Just checked the USGS website, and it shows the nearby rain monitoring station has recorded 17" since July 1.

And year to date? A whopping 65". We've already reached our average annual rainfall... :((

We could use the rain here, haven't had to mow the lawn in 2 weeks, I'd just prefer to not be in the form of a hurricane or tropical storm.

If you really want to mow a lawn..... I'd even arrange for lunch and beverages...or a box of 9mm.

We may get a little soggy with Laura, but she's not coming to town.
