Finally, We May See Our First Hurricane of the Season

     Irene is the 9th named storm of the season, but may become the first to reach hurricane status.  Latest guidance takes Irene right into southern Florida.  Unfortunately there is not much of a chance of this storm heading toward Texas.  Here’s a link to the National Hurricane Center where you can keep up with tropical systems.

     The blistering heat continues in parts of Texas, Oklahoma, and Arkansas.  We have been lucky the past few days with highs only in the 90s.  In fact Mike’s Weather World picked up about .40 inches of rain this morning, keeping it a little cooler.  And that a good thing considering we have a cracked fan blade on our downstairs air conditioning unit.  A little southern engineering with aluminum duck tape has it holding together, but I’m only running it a few minutes at a time.

  1. LOL! I read that as 40″ not .40!!! More than I’ve seen in forever! Send that hurricane and more this way!!! No end in sight for our triple digits and heat advisories.

  2. Sorry to hear about the AC. Victoria could commiserate. (hers is in working order now)

    We got nothing out of the storm you thought might come my way yesterday. I could tell it had rained in Junction City when we drove through there, though. *sigh*
