Going north. Shucks, no rain.

No, Houston doesn’t suck all the time. There are usually at least a couple of days a year when it doesn’t suck.

Heat, humidity, traffic (to call these parking lots freeways is ludicrous), property taxes through the roof, no zoning, MUDs, sanctuary city, illegals with no driver’s license and no insurance, spreading slums from section 8 housing with new barrios, no redeeming natural beauty, less public recreation land than just about anywhere I can think of, flat as a board, drought to flood to hurricanes, wildfires, winters not cold enough to kill off the bugs, plumbing in the attic and cold snaps enough to burst pipes and flood your house, more air conditioned square footage than any place on earth I am told.

Yup, Houston is a good place for jobs right now. Few remember the early 80s when people just pitched their keys in the flower bed and left. The oilfield folded like a tent and didn’t come back good for more than 10 years.

Smoke ‘em while you got ‘em.

No matter how much lipstick you put on a pig it is still a pig and still ugly to most.

I have been following tropical weather 40 years, and I have never seen a forcast like this. Accoriding to the 4:00 a.m. graphic, the TS might be moving a total of 100 miles in 6 days. North and west gulf coast Florida Freepers beware. This translates into possible unprecedented historical flooding.

This storm is acting somewhat like TS Allison back in June 2001. It meandered around the Gulf and Texas for several days causing major flooding in many areas.
