For all of you concerned as to our plans for Eduoard, we are planning to stay here for now. It is supposed to be here starting tonight and then all day tomorrow. Rain and winds up to 60 mph are forecasted. But really not that bad I don't think. By Thursday we are supposed to be dry and sunny.
Looking outside now at the crystal blue sky, and the stagnant air that is oh so humid, you can see why in 1900 Galvestonians had no clue that something big was on the way. It truly is a beautiful albeit humid day.
So pray that our power stays on, and that this thing doesn't strengthen and all should be well.
On the menu tonight:
Sirloin steak, mashed potatoes, corn on the cob, and some variety of the summer fruit stashed in the fridge. Then banana chocolate chip muffins for dessert.
(Should the power go out, I wouldn't want the steak to go to waste, and the rotting bananas need to be turned into something delectable today.)
