My personal musings about anything that gets on my radar screen--heavily dominated by politics.


After Rita makes landfall, its forward motion will slow, and the weakening hurricane may stall across northeastern Texas or northwestern Louisiana by Sunday causing catastrophic flooding for several days across East Texas, Louisiana, and possibly Mississippi and Arkansas. . .

Storm surge of as high as 20-25 feet is possible along the coast near and to the right of landfall. In addition, 8-16 inches of rain can accompany the storm into eastern Texas and western Louisiana, with perhaps even higher amounts should the storm stall inland as mentioned above. These higher rainfall amounts would occur over the weekend into early next week.

Everybody say a little prayer tonight--this could get very. VERY. Bad.
