Could use the rain in Texas, but it looks like Louisiana’s getting it.

Looks like a minimal storm, don’t know how much rain Louisiana has had lately.

Yes, it's really hard to believe.
How much do you want to bet if the Hurricane reaches LA, Obama and his thugs will push Jindal out of the way and try to run things?

Thanks once again NN for taking the time to keep us informed. Hope this one goes the way of Bonnie, but it has been hot. Next week, Aug 18, is the anniversary of Alicia which hit the greater Houston area in 1983. Guess it's “churn time” in the gulf. Stay safe.

Current forecast doesn’t strengthen this system above tropical storm.

This storm is headed the opposite direction from Cancun.

I hope this will bring Houston some rain and relief from the heat....... but it probably won’t.

I remember the forecasters back then telling us it was just a rainmaker and when it became a hurricane we were told it would be minimal, nothing to worry about, just a lot of rain, then it got closer and turned into a cat 3, and stayed stalled on the coast of Galveston for close to 24 hours. Oh yeah, I remember that storm, and in some ways was worse than Ike.Lots of rain and lots of trees down, tons of glass in the street downtown.

That storm taught me to never assume any storm in the gulf, even a weak one close to land, is to discounted. What was it, the morning of the 18th Alicia was a Cat.1, then later that night she made landfall a Cat 3 heading dead on into Houston. One rocky 12 hours.

Is it just me or does every storm prediction these days include New Orleans?

A week ago I was whining about no rain.

Now I’ve about had my fill.

I would sure welcome some rain, but I’m afraid that as we’re on the dry side and landfall is projected just too far east, that we won’t get any from this one.
