    A new storm has formed in the Atlantic and her name is Rita. Model runs are all over the place with this one as per the 5PM NHC advisory. Even though none of the model runs are directly over the area, atleast two of the model runs steer it between New Orleans to the Alabama coast. Two other model runs (and from what I hear are the most dependable) steer it towards Texas. Let's hope the only thing this brings to SOWAL is more sand for the beaches.

    DOH! I didn't realize that I posted the link instead of the image. Thanks a lot Joe, I did not know that you too graduated from UGA! We must share stories.

    And the models have updated since that posting. Two of them still take it over LA which is horrible, but so far it looks even better for the Panhandle.

    The photo should be updated with the one on that site because I copied the image location rather than the photo itself. :D

    Unfortunately this one could be a doozy for who ever gets it. Just hope our high pressure doesn't go anywhere until Rita is gone. I know we could use the rain but not that bad!

    Marga "rita" looks like she is headed straight across to Mexico. Don't wish her upon anyone but the panhandle doesn't need any more storms. TWC said that the high pressure system over the mid/lower southeast should push her across the GOM to Tx or Mexico on or before Friday. Hope she doesn't turn into the panhandle or worse into La. Gulfcoast as a whole doesn't need anymore from Pensacola west to NOLA. :bang:

    I guess the good news is that if Rita hits the same area as Katrina, at least they have not rebuilt, and New Orleans won't have the same evacuation problems. You think the Mayor could get it right this time if it came their way?

    Only 8 more to go for the English alphabet, then they go right into the Greek alphabet. Unfortunately, the storms don't stop just because we ran out of letters in the USA.

    Actually, there are only four left! :eek: Stan, Tammy, Vince, Wilma. None of them sounds that scary, but then again neither does/did "Katrina."

    I didn't even look. We may get there really fast then. :sosad: I thought for sure they could think of some evil sounding name with the funky letters... like Xenon or Xander or Yuckie. Thanks for the correction!:D

    To our friend Rita...please forgive us in advance when we curse your name! Could Galveston/Houston be next? Wish me luck in getting my 80 yo daddy out of Houston, if so.

    Call me crazy, but at the beginning of the season, I said I didn't like the idea of Hurricane Rita. I know a crazy Rita who is like a Cat 5. I don't like this storm.

    Had a girl friend in grade named Zonia, nice friend, sure she would not want a hurricane named after her.
