    Wholly chit! I was just kiddin'...

When I said "if a tropical storm or a hurricane don't change the plans" earlier in regard to the Salty Dog rally. Well... sorta kiddin'. Still, I didn't expect to go to the weather and find one brewing right NOW!

This is exactly the same scenario that brought Hurricane Alicia to High Island, Galveston/Houston in 1983.

We woke up one morning with a "possible" tropical storm brewing in the gulf off the Florida Panhandle. That evening it was Tropical Storm Alicia. The next day it was Hurricane Alicia and "they" were hollerin' to high heaven it was coming ashore at Camron, Louisiana and was gonna swamp Lake Charles where I was doing a project fo Conoco at the time. We spent all day battenin' down the hatches and preparing to take immediate cover and the next morning it had bypassed Louisiana all together and went in to Galveston/Houston. Flooded my home in Houston with three and a half feet of water and six inches of mud. Could have done without the mud.

I drove over to Houston to check on my home three days after Hurricane Alicia. I remember the first signs of a hurricane had hit was a broken highway sign on I-10 and a dead cow beside the road some 50 miles east of Houston. From that point on things just got worse and I will never forget the blackened sky over Houston from all the burning of debris.

   Checked Hurricane Center Forcast from Tbone  6/23/2012 5:46:59 PM
 50mph winds, North bound at 6mph. Most likely Fl. panhandle, SE Ga., then into Atlantic onward to "Spinny-land".

   Funny you should say that... from Gridleak  6/23/2012 6:17:01 PM

The Lazy Boy (my trollin' motor powered bass fishin' pedal boat) is currently, though not tied off, standing up on end out in the yard leaned against a branch that is about nine feet off the ground in a tree. I stood it on end there last week to drain the hull. I didn't notice the branch and the trollin' motor got hung up on it. Since it was holding it so well I just left it standing there until I could get back to it. So... alls I gotta do is throw a rope over it and it'll be good to go through a hurricane?

   I'ma watching'. from Spinny  6/23/2012 6:37:08 PM
 This time of year they zig-zag all over the place.


   I gotta say from Crowbar  6/23/2012 9:23:08 PM
  It wouldn't hurt my feelings if about Friday, it decided to take a nice north westerly turn. Computer models are all over the place. No two show a similar track.

   Hope y'all get the rain you from Spinny  6/23/2012 9:42:32 PM
 so badly need.


And maybe it'll push up into Colorado, too.


   Yep from Crowbar  6/23/2012 10:26:49 PM
 That would be IDEAL for sure. New Mexico has been burning badly too.


   Models have changed slightly from Crowbar  6/24/2012 11:02:40 AM
 With 2 predicting near identical landfalls at....wait for it.....High Island, or very damned near. One hitting central Mississippi coast and the other 2, upper Florida.


   Apparently it is now officially... from Gridleak  6/24/2012 12:08:44 PM

Tropical Storm Debby.


I'm guessing Florida is catching a lot of rain as well as parts of Georgia, and Mississippi.
