The calm...

Yeah, before the storm.  I went for a walk this morning.  It was 73º in the house when I left.  73º outside.  The humidity in the house was 46%.  The humidity outside was about 1,000%.  Yes, I am exaggerating - it was higher than that.  (In reality, the outside humidity was 100%.  I don't know how it can be 100% humidity and not be foggy or raining?)  Not a lick of breeze.  Couldn't get moving fast enough to create my own "apparent wind."  (sailing reference)

The weather weasels are predicting a change to roll in around noon; thunderstorms, with wind gusting to 40 mph.  No boat, so no hatches to batten down.  We did, however, move loose stuff off our deck; brought in the cushions for the chairs; strapped the chairs to the table.

This morning, Joan made cinnamon rolls.  Chili planned for this afternoon.  Yep, we're ready.  ;-)


This weekend was supposed to be the South Texas Balloon Festival - over 20 hot air balloons.  Not good weather for this first time event in Mercedes (in the Rio Grande Valley).
