    lol Ciara

    Its affecting my friends and family. I have a friend that was hit in the yucatan area, thankfully not much damage and I have many people I know in brownsville. Hopefully the levees will hold. Oddly petroleum went down today! I figured it would go up with the scares of the oil production down there and with them being evacuated.

    Oil prices went down because the rigs are built to easily withstand storms the strength of Dolly, which looks to be a Category 1 at landfall, although they often weaken just before landfall.

    I really think it will be closer to a strong tropical storm than a hurricane, but actually better than a tropical storm. Tropical storms tend to stall and "train" rain, which causes more flooding than a hurricane which is propelled more quickly inland, and doesn't drop as much as rain. (Curiously enough.)

    I also think it will hit south of Brownsville, but I have to go check now.

    I hope we get some rain down here from it, but sure hope it doesn't become dangerous and loses some of her strength.

    I'm praying for those affected by Dolly. Here in my area, we always expect tornadoes, spawned by the hurricanes that hit S. Texas. Hubby and I are headed to Galveston early tomorrow morning to dedicate a park bench in honor of Riley Ann Sawyers / Baby Grace. Tomorrow is the 1 year anniversary of her tragic murder. Pray for those traveling from out of town for the ceremony, along with all those in Dolly's path. I sure hope she weakens, and just provides the much needed rain here in S. Texas.

    Here's one of the Houston Chronicle regular blogs, SciGuy:

    Basically, rain is heavy, tolerable so far, if Dolly slows and rains increase, there could be more issues with flooding.

    Sure will keep you all in mind. Hard to believe it's the one year anniversary for Riley Ann Sawyers.
