Tuesday morning / 29 August 2017

Weather has improved with the eastward departure of tropical cyclone Harvey…

Please note that authorities still are discouraging any travel eastward to the Houston/southeast Texas area.

It is still going to take me a day or so to get caught up on my work in the wake of Harvey. Until I get a little more caught up, I am referring you to the latest National Weather Service / Austin-San Antonio forecast for the Austin metro area (here is the link).
