It looks like good news--well, sorta good news--for Texas--the latest I'm seeing suggests Rita will be landing on the Gret Stet side of the border. Radar shows the eye is about 60 miles south of Cameron Parish, and my own read of the track is that the storm's traveling more north than west. If this continues, the storm surge could travel up the Calcasieu Parish Shipping Channel...that's NOT good news for Lake Charles.
Local news is starting to look at this and predict a Cameron landfall...ouch.
One slightly good bit of news is that air pressure's rising around NOLA, i.e., the worst has passed there.
Over here, more rain, and steady winds.
Back later, assuming I have power.
