Just checked the 11 AM projection of Rita's path. Of course, really can't tell much until it gets into the Gulf, but it now looks headed to Galveston Bay. The Gulf is still so bloody warm that it will likely be another major storm by the time it gets to wherever it's going.

Yes, Kitty, 18 named tropical storms is about 150 percent of a typical bad year. And NOAA says maybe at least two storms after Rita. TV weather guys are beginning to explain that after we reach Zeke [or whatever the Z name is] NOAA will start naming them after the Greek alphabet--Alpha, Beta, etc.
