Dolly is heading straight for me.

Where do you have the storm heading?

Das is on a secret assignment right now, organizing an effort to rain on someone's parade.  He usually endorses the NOAA, though.

Seems like I picked the wrong week to go to South Padre Island for a mini-vacation.  Plan B in full effect now!

And yet, all 5 of the local Houston stations will be urging you to fill up your gas tanks and buy bottled water and bleach if you're within the Houston Metro area.

What's the bleach for?  No one knows, but you better have some.

The bleach is for mold growth after water deluge.

Thankfully I only know about this, didn't need to put it into effect.  I live in Cedar Rapids though and the devastation is pretty thorough downtown.

Is that the town that has an island in the middle of the river that the courthouse sits on?  If so, I been they.

If the storm surge comes, you can dump the bleach out of the bottles and use them for flotation.

Indeed it is.  Hubris is what I call it, and Nemesis is what happened in June.  July is starting to be unkind as well.  4.5 inches of rain over the past three days.  The Cedar River is up noticeably though not yet to anything exceptional.   It's thundering as I type this though....

"(512) ybbodeus looks just as creepy in HD as in person."   That is a problem, and we are working on it.
