Since moving to Texas, I have been introduced to the uneasy onset of hurricane season and obsessive remote control clicks to The Weather Channel. When I lived in California, the earthquakes came with little to no warning and we were left with a devastated community in a matter of minutes. The early detection of hurricanes saves lives and cues evacuations, but it also allows a period of anxious waiting and suspense. I moved to Texas during the summer of 2005 and was warmly greeted by two formidable gals: Katrina and Rita. Wow! Since then, I have kept a closer eye on the systems entering the Gulf of Mexico.
