Hurricane Blogging

Hurricane Rita has been downgraded to a Cat 3 storm, and continues its eastward migration. It looks like landfall will occur between Beaumont and the Tx/La border.

In Galveston, the wind and surf are steadily increasing as the storm gets closer to land. Here in Spring, we're predicted to get tropical storm strength winds of approximately 70mph. We'll see how things go, and we'll update as the situation develops.

Here I am at the home of Vulture 6, aka Vulture’s Nest. The sun is now disappearing behind the clouds, and the winds are picking up as Hurricane Rita nears the Gulf Coast. Rita continues to shift ever-so-slightly to the east, and will not directly hit the Houston/Galveston area. The leading edge of the storm isn’t scheduled to hit the coast for another 4-5 hours.

I’ll be here, and will be Hurricane Blogging for as long as I have power and an internet connection.
