is this another Allison?

Those of us who lived through Tropical Storm Allison remember this scenario vividly: rain that remained stationary, dropping countless inches of water on the city. Roads and highways flooding, and complete neighborhoods cut off from the rest of the city.

On the news, officials keep saying “wait it out” and “be careful.” And, of course, “if you haven’t left already, stay home.”

I think I’m going to do that.

In the meantime, check to see if your summer school has closed for the day. And visit one of the local news channels to check traffic.
