"Tropical Storm" - Stanley Jordan, 1988
This is one time of year that I don't miss living in Houston, so close to the Gulf of Mexico.
Tropical Storm Edouard is making its way toward the Texas/Louisiana Gulf Coast. I don't wish harm on anybody, but I hope the storm steers toward Louisiana. I have a lot of friends in the Houston area, and I hope they will all be all right.
You can check the storm's progress on the National Hurricane Center's website.
While the "tropical storm" designation means that Edouard doesn't have winds severe enough to have gained hurricane status, don't underestimate the power of a tropical storm. Those of us in Houston in 2001 will never forget TS Allison, will we?
