Rio Grande flooding

us tropical weather-542858290_v2.grid-6x2What Hurricane Alex did to the Rio Bravo (Mexican version) at Laredo with another storm with more rain on the way today and tomorrow.

Lollygagging Dolly

It’s beginning to look more and more like Dolly will go in near the mouth of the Rio Grande, about where the hurricane center originally had it pegged. So agrees Eric Berger at the Chron. And maybe only barely a minimal, category one, hurricane, she’s been so weak so far at just fifty mph. That would be good news for most on the Texas coast, but bring us less rain than we might otherwise get to cool off our long string of hundred degree days. Heck, I even have the landscapers coming tomorrow to trim one of the back forty’s live oaks where its branches are dragging on the rancho’s roof, to save the shingles, if there were high winds from the storm’s remnants coming inland. Looks like I jumped the gun. But we’ll know more about that tomorrow.

Yippee Eye Oh Kye Ay

I’m an old Cowhand,

From the Rio Grande,

And I learned to ride,

‘Fore I learned to stand,

I’m a ridin’ fool who is up to date, 

I know every trail in the Lone Star State,

‘Cause I ride the range in a Ford V-8,

Yippee Eye Oh Kye Ay.
