Tropical Storm Hermine getting stronger in the Gulf; headed toward Texas, Mexico coasts
Tropical Storm Hermine is getting a little stronger in the Gulf of Mexico as it heads toward the coasts of Texas and Mexico.
Looks like Brownsville is going to get a direct hit from this storm, which will be either be a hurricane, or very close to it, by the time it hits.
While it may be a mess for Brownsville, this is a Godsend for the Houston area, which had the hottest August ever recorded. In fact, August is the hottest single month ever recorded for Houston. Although a cold front broke the heat, the tropical weather from this storm is going to kill the wave permanently. As I type this post, it is raining cats and dogs here in Houston. And after I type this, I am going to go outside and stand in it, and will get soaking wet. I will enjoy the living crap out of it too. I will say a prayer for those in the South Texas area, though, since they are going to get up to a foot of rain. I hope the flooding isn't too bad down there, and the damage turns out to be minimal.
Although the storm is moving north towards Houston-Galveston at the present time, the storm itself won't come anywhere near here, as the cold front that came through is going to steer it northwest.
Will be back in a little bit. I meant it when I said that I was going to stand out in the rain for a while. LOL.
