I am in Austin (technically Round Rock, but you can't tell where one ends and the other begins) staying with my sister.

Got out of Houston at 8 a.m. and had no traffic issues at all.

The tarp is covering the front window (here's hoping it's still up when I get back). I am a wimp about not having power, though. I hope any power outage we have doesn't last long.

The plan is for me to head to Austin tomorrow morning to stay with my sister and b-i-l this weekend. I'll be heading out pre-dawn to try to find a non-busy route west.

Hopefully I will still have power when I come back to Houston (hopefully Sunday).

It looks like Tropical Depression #5 is heading our way for potential landfall on Tuesday.

It probably won't have too much time to strengthen past a tropical storm. (But then Humberto, last year, went from depression to hurricane in 24 hours.)

Say a quick hello to Tropical Depression Number 9 Tropical Storm Humberto!

A TROPICAL STORM WARNING HAS BEEN ISSUED FROM PORT O'CONNOR TEXAS TO CAMERON LOUISIANA. A TROPICAL STORM WARNING MEANS THAT TROPICAL STORM CONDITIONS ARE EXPECTED WITHIN THE WARNING AREA WITHIN THE NEXT 24 HOURS.

9 could wind up being named either Humberto or Ingrid, depending on how quickly it organizes and how quickly TD #8 organizes.

We're being warned to expect 5 to 10 inches of rain, possibly up to 15 inches.

First, happy birthday [livejournal.com profile] jaala!

It's been a surprisingly unproductive weekend for me. Went to see Children of Men on Saturday. I highly recommend it. It's quite dark and depressing, but ends on a hopeful note. Sunday was a Browncoat shindig for [livejournal.com profile] wyrdfae's birthday (which is Tuesday).

As the weather has turned dreary, and as we're supposed to get a taste of the ice storm which has hit elsewhere in the state, I may hang close to the house today.

Thank goodness for a 3-day weekend.
