The latest update by those who track hurricanes has moved the projected path of Hurricane Rita even further to the east.  This means my house is no longer in the predicted path of the eye of the storm.  We are now expecting roughly 80 mph winds which is much better than the 120+ mph winds previously predicted.  It is beginning to look like the biggest problem we might face is a prolonged power outage.  Centerpoint Energy is already reporting localized power outages across the entire Houston area and the winds onshore are less than 30 mph.  We’re keeping our fingers crossed and fully aware that in a hurricane what is good news to us means bad news for others.
