As long as it doesn't gain too much in intensity I say bring it on. It has been very dry here in the Houston area and despite my best efforts at watering my front lawn is "crunchy". The area could use a good soaking.

I'm hoping we will see some of that rain in Dallas too. We could use a major cool down as we have been over 100 degrees for about two weeks, and I can't remember the last time we had a solid rainy day.

 rotfl   rotfl  Maybe so! I've spent an entire 2 weeks total in that country and never been rained on once.

Update on Edouard, looks as if it will become a minimal hurricane before it makes landfall sometime Tuesday. Track looks like it will come at Galveston bay from the east which is not so hot for the Kemah Boardwalk, a small amusement center on the west side of the bay, since the water will be piling up from the east. Hopefully since it will be a minor hurricane the surge will not be all that bad. I'm taking down the screen room and putting away all the outdoor furniture this morning. I've test run the generator and all is well so if the power goes out, we're set!

Further update. Edouard has come ashore farther up the coast. Made a jog to the north in the late pm hours last night and has landed up towards Sabine Pass. It's just about 8 am and winds where I live are still pretty mild although the rain has started and is gradually picking up. Local TV has showed some transtar video shots of the the bridges crossing the ship channel and it would be an adventure crossing one of those. Continental has pre-cancelled a number of flights out of IAH today and I would imagine that even those that are still scheduled will be somewhat delayed as the strongest winds pass through the area a little later today. But I can hear my lawn sighing relief already!

Side note, what was up with Stephanie Abrahams in that green nightmare of a top last night? Comon Stephanie, the T-shirt works best IYKWIM.  wink
