Note that this is the ONE hour rainfall totals through southwest Houston.
I mean, I’m not wishing anyone harm or distress, but this has been much ado about nothing in my area. I got tired of the media obsessing over ONE tornado, ONE death, ONE damaged house, ONE damaged truck, ONE wrecked business. Reminded me of Ike, where all the different TV reporters would stand in front of the Balinese Ballroom in Galveston. It was the only debris pile they could get to, and the anchors almost sounded desperate to find mass destruction to put on the air.
God, I wish I could get Houblog back up to link those posts, and you could see the difference in the tension.
Anyway, I’ve got lightning and thunder approaching, and something resembling a bad weather event. And who knows what the next four days will bring? Count my blessings dammit; I’ve always known (since a little incident in my college days) that the media is NOT one of those.
