We're watching Ike. Watching him like a hawk. Accuweather has him coming ashore on the Texas coast, but those of us who remember Rita, in 2005 remember her as taking a jog to the right and coming ashore in East Texas.
A storm that's a hundred miles wide and comes ashore in east Texas is going to have a heck of an impact on Louisiana. Yeah, that puts us in the northeast quadrant of the storm. Not a good place to be.
At any rate, here's the current guesstimate by Accuweather.
I don't want to wish a hurricane on anybody. For all you folks in southern Texas, get ready. I hope it doesn't come here, and I hope that y'all are going to be okay.
