So off I trot over to NHC @ NOAA to see the path because once the storm tracks into the HAWTER deep waters of the Gulf; they tend to pick up strength. http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/
The next 24 hours will determine how the storm will land either way looks like we fall into the right side of the storm no matter where it will make land fall. Another point, since our internet service provider has its servers housed in Brownsville; we may be off line after Wednesday.
I guess this afternoon hubby and I will be doing FOD walks to ensure no loose tools, toys, branches and such items will become missiles. Saying a little prayer for those who have already lost lives, been affected, and are in the path of this storm.
