Everyone's Gone To the Moon

Wind has just come up strongly. Still hot and humid, cloudy as well. Wind presages a strong thunderstorm, nothing more. Or so it seems. Still, the front door faces north, so we sheeted it in plastic, duct tape, and concrete bricks.

We dare water to get in there, now. It will probably take us up on it in the next 24 hours.

Walked the neighborhood earlier, down to the Fire Station a block away. An eerie feeling of being in an "end of the world" movie. Business closed, few cars on what is usually a very busy road; and no one apparently at home in the fire house.

Probably all inside watching the hurricane on TV. The new Houston past-time.
