Gustav looks like the first storm that will pose a serious threat to us this season.
Not that you can read too much into the historicals, but an equivalent storm hasn't come close to this part of the Texas coast since 1915 according to the map.
Here's to hoping it won't.
I'll just keep a watch on it for now, since it's well more than a week away from these parts.
At least it doesn't have a gay name like Edouard.
