Rita (2005), Humberto (2007) and now Edouard all landed at Sabine Pass / High Island (no jokes, please; they’ve all been made already), each along a different path. If you’re thinking of moving to the Texas coast, you might not want to choose High Island.

From where I sit (southwest corner of Loop 610 in Houston), Edouard is a mild-mannered fellow, especially at the moment… it is neither raining nor blowing. If there’s a problem later today and tomorrow, it’s liable to be rainfall, not wind.

Looks like DFW make get some rain on the shifted track, so some good will come of it. This may be the new pattern under current conditions, hitting up in the corner.

It got pulled North yesterday evening after wobbling as it intensified, as during the afternoon it looked like it would come in South of Houston through Sugar Land.
