    Unhappy Too Tired for this...

    NOAA 5 day projected path of (soon to be) Hurricane Rita:



    This places the eye of the storm right over our heads. We are a block from the away from the beach. Naturally, hurricanes are difficult to forecast 5 days out so it could do anything. The Gulf waters are blazing hot (hurricane fuel) so I would expect it to strengthen to at least a cat 3 if not 4 or 5.

    The problem where we live (Port Aransas, Texas) is this:

    It could be two days out and blue sky. But there are only two ways off our island. One is by an 18 mile stretch of road and then a bridge – the other is by ferry boat. Usually, by the time you have any warning that the storm is coming (for sure), the surge has already secretly flooded the road, and lifted the ferry boats so high as to not be able to dock. Then you are stuck. I must travel to Houston today and be back Wednesday. When I get back, I will have very little time to grab what I can out of the studio and house and get out of dodge. So, if you guys don’t hear from me – no worries! We are going to leave if it is a Cat 2 or higher. It just may be a while before I can post. Y’all be good!

    ...in fact, there are some people presently staying here in town from New Orleans. If you ever want to witness someone go through "culture shock", now is the time.

    Yes indeed Dan - that must be very difficult for the North Dakotians.
