Edouard's Coming

Whew! We just got home from grocery shopping for Edouard that will hit Galveston about lunch time tomorrow, Tuesday, the 5th of August 2008. A lot of people were shopping for their own stuff at the grocery store we went to. And guess what! Ozarka Spring water was almost out, we were lucky to get a couple of cases because the rest of the water that was in the store were non-spring and my husband don't like it. Otherwise, we would have to sacrifice getting the distilled or purified kind.

The watch issued Sunday night means that hurricane conditions are possible from Tropical Storm Edouard within the next 24 hours from Intracoastal City to Port O'Connor, Texas.

The fifth named storm of the 2008 hurricane season has sustained maximum winds of about 50 miles per hour.

Forecasters say Edouard is likely to hit west of Galveston, which is in the peak of its tourist season, when the city's population of about 60,000 doubles. While the storm-seasoned town was watching the storm, no evacuations were ordered and local officials were merely urging caution.
