    What the he!!!!!!:eek:
    I knew there was a little low pressure spot about 300nm off Tx.
    What I didn't expect was to get home last nite & see a Cat-1
    Hurricane hitting Galveston!
    In a span of just over 50 hrs, this little storm increased to
    hurricane strength. I guess it surprised everyone, because the
    NOAA had no warnings up yesterday morning.
    Looks like it made landfall around Port Arthur. weather never ceases
    to amaze me.
    Perspective; from about Redhawk to Galveston, weak depression to
    Hurricane. blows my mind. Bet the fishing will pick up next week.....:D
    tight lines

    I'll tell you what, if we have to have a hurricane, that's the right kind to have!

    And that was a surprise, I got to work yesterday morning and checked the weather and saw that they were talking about it possibly turning into a minimal hurricane or going inland, and possibly, back out over sea and re-developing. Friends at the state told me they had a 1 1/2-hr conference call for emergency response to the storm yesterday.
