The Calm before the Storm

Thanks for all the good wishes in the comments to previous posts. So far it's quiet here. The tropical storm force winds haven't arrived, nor has the rain. If you've seen anything on TV about the storm, however, you know that Galveston's already getting hammered, and the worst is yet to come. I'm still hunkered, still nervous, still dithering.

Henry and Mary Ann Melton went to Galveston for the storm. Mary Ann is posting photos on her blog. Henry has some, too.

It's 2:33 and the winds are pretty gusty. Growing up in the Texas Panhandle it doesn't seem so bad, at least not right now.

I knew that Bill had a few paperbacks, but he has cats too? That settles it - Bill is now officially one of the good guys.

Dry wishes, Bill. Gee, I'm happy I live in a region that has what must be the most boring climate in the world. And I live on the hthird floor, too.

Btw, I'm watching The Last Picture Show right now. Great flick, this must surely be one of the great Texas movies of all time time, right?

A great Texas movie, indeed. I believe Cybil Shepherd used a body double, though.

We have only three cats. Sometimes it seems like more, however.

Hang tough, pal. Just make out you're in the middle of a Gold Medal original in which the storm is going to invovle some poor innocent (you) in the middle of a caper gone bad!

Our thoughts and prayers are with you and yours (inluding the cats).
