Running From Rita - Part 7

Took these pictures in our backyard an hour or so ago. The one showing all the blue sky is facing east to southeast. The other is facing northwest. I took these pictures standing up at the top of the slide on our swingset.

It sure looks like a beautiful, innocent late Houston summer day. Very sunny, very hot. Nothing unusual that I could see. Looking at these pictures and having been alive here on this day before the day before the day of Rita's anticipated landfall, I can see how people got surprised in the centuries and decades before. Twenty-four to thirty-six hours from now a hurricane might be here. But I sure can't tell from looking around outside.

Kind of interesting.

It may not matter after the storm,
but if your roof is not destroyed, you may want to get the shingles around your vent pipe looked at.
They appear to be buckled, and if you don't get that taken care of you will have water getting in there....

Been there done that.

Thanks, swashBuckler eagleEye. We don't have a freeze/thaw cycle down here in Texas. Nothing to worry about.
