Dreaming Demon

Hmmmmm...

It's sunny and bright outside, but it's getting a little windy.

Normally I wouldn't notice. But the hurricane has me a little edgy.

I woke up this morning with monster headache. Took medicine. Got G to school. Spent a some time getting info for a friend of ndozo's. Then the headache meds kicked in and I fell asleep. Now I'm drowsey, and it's windy and I have way too much stuff to do.

Yuck.

Miles and Miles of Texas

The evacuation of the Texas Coast is an abysmal failure.



An sff.net
regular wrote in the sff.net.discuss.emergency news group that he left his home in the mandatory evacuation area Wednesday night at 5:45 pm. At 8am he had made it to Houston. They were low on gas.  The gas stations had no gas, and traffic was at a standstill. So he drove to his office in Houston and will hunker down there for the duration. He has his family and his pets with him. His sister, who left later wound up turning around and going back to her house.

Louisiana beats Texas in the area of evacuation and Contra-Flow. Score one for Governor Blanco.

Oh yeah, and the levees are being breeched in New Orleans.

Talking 'bout the Weather

Wow! The storm path model graphics that I have been inserting are not static images. They are updating themselves like the VolcanoCam does. I guess I should have expected that, but I didn't.

So I won't be inserting them as often.

The sky here is blue and bright with an excess of high-in-the-sky cirrus clouds and some small puffy cumulus clouds. It's quite hot, 96 degrees according to KXAN, and the wind is puffing away with gusts up to 21 mph.

I'll try to post a sky picture after I get G at school.
