Corpus Christi is in the center of Hurricane Ike’s projected trajectory. He’s coming at us like a fastball over home plate. This is a bit scarier than being on the periphery of the strike zone. TAMU-CC started issuing updates yesterday. One scientific expedition is recalled.
If there’s anything good that came out of Katrina it’s better hurricane preparedness in the Gulf of Mexico. Should the storm bear down on us, we’ll shutter up the house, pack up the car, and head for hill country in Austin, TX. My wife can drive while I crunch data and the kids fall asleep in the back. Right. I wonder what happened to Kevin and his family?
