Swerve to the right

Imelda summary rainfall, NWS Houston


Imelda didn’t come up the Brazos River as predicted, it jumped I-45 and went up the Trinity instead. Basically Cleveland to Beaumont was where the torrent dropped over 25 inches, some places as much as 40 inches. Here, we got less than 3/4 inch for the week, most of that today.


A new thaw, having finally emptied out the fridge of recipes. Pork loin, beef tenderloin, and fajita chicken are the stock. Today is a light day, eating a peanut butter and honey sandwich.


The high has been around 90°F and is forecast to go up to 93°F, not yet an end to summer, but at least an end to August. The western Gulf was cooled, but other areas to the east are still too hot for comfort.


I didn’t do much this week, mostly planning to hunker down, then not needing to hunker down, but doing so anyway. Made a couple of store runs, less than $40 total for both. Can’t think of anything I need now.


Been watching movies, playing games, reading news, the usual time eaters. Over all, getting enough sleep, feeling pretty good. I’m just ready for summer to go away.
