Tropical Storm Ernesto Crossing the Caribbean

We knew it couldn't last.  We went two full months into hurricane season without a tropical storm anywhere near Texas or Louisiana, but we may not be able to feel safe for much longer.  There's now a storm "out there" that could very well come our way and cause major problems.

In Texas This Summer, Sunscreen Is Your Friend

Summer is here, and it seems like everyone is hitting the pool or the lake. Who doesn’t love relaxing on a boat with a few close friends, family members, and perhaps drinks with umbrellas in them? It’s all fun and games until somebody gets a nasty, blistering sunburn.

I got one of those several years ago at Lake Travis in Austin. My back was bare while I was on a boat with friends, I didn’t put an ounce of sunscreen on it, and I laid on a raft for about two hours.

Spots like Reno, NV and Albuquerque, NM will have the most spectacular views of the complete eclipse, but the entire path of the eclipse stretches from China to Texas. Plenty of folks will have the opportunity to see the rare show of nature.
