    Appears to be a problem for Texicans sometime next week. Here's the five-day forecast:

    Could be worse. One of the tropical storms in the Pacific is named Fabio.

    Superduper updated update as of 5:30 -- winds up to 60 mph. I suspect the models are trending too far south on this system (they had trouble initializing it last night to the point that they thought it'd be dead within 72 hours, and a lot of them still want to have it go over Hispanola), and as a result I'd be more concerned about the East Coast for a strike.

    At least we're not into the H's like we were this time last year.

    Sucks for you. But the best deli sandwich I ever got came from nearby Bethlehem, just five minutes east on Route 22.

    I'm not sure Texas is necessarily where the problem is going to be. Too far out really to tell. However, we're rapidly moving past the time of year when tropical systems take the Texas route. It's not unheard of. Certainly a possibility.

    Here's the thing. Let's hope this stays a rain event and not a wind event. The only way the Southeast is going to break the current drought it's in is with a tropical system. Most states/area are way below average rain total and a tropical system will be needed to bust the drought.

    You know who's 20 inches below their average for the year for rain? New Orleans. Wouldn't THAT be a mixed blessing.

    been planning to get out of miami for a week starting saturday. thank god. miami might not be here when i get back but at least i won't have to sit through another dose of the hype, hyperbole and mass hysteria that sweeps through the region every time a wave forms out in the atlantic.

    The next few days would be a good time for anyone along the Gulf Coast to go shopping for all of the hurricane essentials. Beat the rush ... you know you'll have to pick this stuff up one day anyway ... and it will be there when you need. Water, batteries, canned goods, etc.

    Stock up now. Don't wait until everyone in town is at the store buying the same items. The shelves might be empty by then. You know what I mean if you've been through it before.
