Come on Erin, challenge me on my bike! I bike in the heat, rain, hail, and now look forward to experience the tropical storm weather. Now H. Dean is when I stay home.

Erin should go in somewhere between Corpus and Brownsville - I don't think it will have much effect here besides some cooler weather and rain squalls.

Allison was a once-in-a-lifetime weather event - most TS that hit here are rather forgettable.
Tropical Storm Amelia in 1978 dumped 45" of rain in the Hill Country and Tropical Storm Claudette in 1979 hammered Alvin, TX with 44" of rain in a matter of 2 days.

Having said that, I do not think Erin will be the case as she should move somewhat quickly to the North and West. Also a Corpus Christi landfall seems the most probable at the moment.

Stop thinking Erin (it's a wimp) start thinking Dean. On it's current course, evacuations could start as early as Tuesday.

Let's not forget the worst Tropical Storm: Allison!

Erin seems to be a pansy. I'm just glad my plants are getting watered! LOL!

I'm not going to sweat over Dean until it's in the Gulf. Too many things can change a storm's course or even its strength that far out...but if it gets in the Gulf you can bet I'll be getting ready!

It's strange how a Category 4 hurricane can make landfall near Corpus and nothing happens here besides some high surf (such was the case with Hurricane Bret in 1999, but a disorganized tropical storm goes in there and we have creeks flooding over their banks.

Nature is weird.

I am visiting until school starts again. I am leaving next weekend. I move back to Houston in December for good.

Are you in Clear Lake?

Looks like Clear Lake and everything north and south has been drenched. They've been showing 610@Cullen and 288@610 being mostly underwater on TV, yet I'm about five miles west and there's nothing too serious. I don't want to get on the Loop, but it looks like I could go down Main and get to the store. I'm staying in though because I think we're gonna get another string of rain.

And Dean is not making itself of any less concern, although I hope people keep their brains about them and not start freaking out like with Rita.
