See you all on the other side of the storm.  Looks like it will come in between us and Galveston.  We will get a hard part of the storm.  Here's to no set backs on the stadium!

I don't guess any one has driven by yet.  We have another band on the way.  After it passes, I'll try to get out there.  It looks like electrical outages were the worst of it.
