Live (sort of) blogging Humberto

It seems Humberto is the big weather story across the country this evening and the Weather Channel is making it sound as if this quick-forming tropical storm will wipe us here on the extreme Upper Texas Coast off the map. That is kind of hysterical actually because usually the Weather Channel acts as we here on the Gulf Texas and Louisiana border don’t exist. I mean, we live here in a metropolitan area even though it is a small metropolitan area.

None the less, (yes I spelled it that way — artistic license or rather driving without an artistic license)the major portion of Humberto seems to be heading right towards us here in the Beaumont-Port Arthur-Orange-Hardin County-Greater Kountze Metropolitan area.

Since I finally signed up for mobile broadband (albeit slow as Christmas)and since I don’t really have to go to work at my part-time job depending on the weather, I thought I would live blog Humberto.

Our most dependable weather forecasters at KFDM Channel 6, with Greg Bostwick watching things this evening, seem to think Humberto will make landfall in the early hours of the morning. There is even a remote chance it could make hurricane before it arrives but that’s pretty remote. Now, I am not going to stay up all night unless I can help it. But I might send out a dispatch or two for the two or three of you out there who regularly read EFD. Okay, I’m exaggerating, the one-or-two. Whatever.

By the way, I like the music the Weather Channel has playing during “Weather on the Eights, Pink Floyd maybe?
