They said it had slowed too and slowing makes it increase. I've had the weather channel on all day. I don't know why, but I'm utterly fascinated by hurricanes and storm chasers.

The eye of the hurricane is about to hit So Padre Island. We started getting rain a couple of hours ago here in Mission (75 miles west from So Padre Island) but nothing major yet. I get fascinated with these things but I would hate for it to get stronger and dangerous for us. Thanks to those praying for us down here in the south tip of Texas.

They say she climbed to a cat. 2, with winds to 115mph. But the worst of it is over from the eye.
And they are already showing damage reports, but the rain will keep coming from the outer bands for about another 48! hours. You know that means some flooding, and power outages. .....Then.....The SKEETERS! ....I dread them as much as all the rest, almost.

I know Silver. DH and I won't be able to exercise outside for a while. As long as we're not flooded is what matters anyway.
