Helpful for Houston, crummy for Corpus
Hurricane Alex began throwing strong east winds at us yesterday, knocking over my potted plants and generally turning over the atmosphere. We spent over an hour outside walking and jogging and enjoying ourselves in the uncharacteristic coolness.
Today we start our rain deluges (and we need rain) - the eye may be coming ashore three hundred miles south of us, but this is a BIG hurricane, and we are on the "dirty" side of it. In the photo, Houston is the first big notch in the coast to the west of the Louisiana border.
