stay away, Edouard!

So here's what all eyes in Houston are glued to: the track of Edouard, which is not yet a hurricane but apparently could become one. I spent the day doing all of the things that have to be done and require electricity (mainly washing clothes), gassing up the car, finding all the flashlights, etc. We just moved all the lawn furniture to the side of the house. There are gray clouds moving in a just a weird feeling in the air. We're prepared, though, so no worries. Just another "hurricane memory," as the kids like to call them. The last one was on Super Q's birthday, and we actually went to the park and almost blew away.

Of course, north TX stands ready to receive you if it comes to that! Doesn't look like it, though. You guys are pro storm-weatherers, so I'm sure you'll be fine.

I'll pray that you are not affected too much by the storm. That's pretty scary stuff, but you sound like you are used to it. I guess you have to be living in Texas.

As an aside, does anyone else think it is kind of funny that the storm is "Edouard" rather than just "Edward?" It seems a bit presumptuous, but maybe they are trying to be multicultural?
