Hello Dolly

Well, with one eye on the sky and the other on the television, we’re waiting to greet Hurricane Dolly tomorrow.

According to all reports, the storm will be coming ashore about 200 mile south near Brownsville and South Padre Island.  (We were just there a week ago.)


We went to the beach at Corpus Christi today only to find that they had closed the National Seashore.  Probably a wise decision.  We were able to get on the beach closer to Corpus at the Nueces County Beach.  The waves have turned a little choppy and the wind is picking up around here.  Looking south toward the storm it is possible to see the monster moving in.


The wind rotates counterclockwise around the storm and the winds here have changed from northeast to east during the day today.  Looking east it is still possible to see the rain bands forming.


According to the reports, our location in Rockport should not experience winds gusting to greater than 55 MPH.  With that in mind, we’ve decided to stay put.  If Murphy’s Law comes into play and conditions change for the worse we’re prepared to hop in the truck and get out of here.

Thursday we will report the wisdom of our decision.
