Rain This Weekend/Poll Closes/New Poll/Looking for Kayakers

There are two areas of disturbed weather in the Atlantic--both are weak and have low prospects for developing.

Big shift west in the jet stream is heating things up out west and allowing cooling rains in Texas. Hooray!!! Texas really needs the drought relief! Highs on Saturday out west will be in the 100s except for the coast of California which will have highs in the 70s. Very pleasant over the eastern US with highs in the 60s (Great Lakes) and 70s. Southeast will have highs in the low 90s. Note the severe storm threat in eastern New Mexico, southeast Colorado, and west Texas.

Houston -- some more thunderstorms over our southern areas on Friday...a whopping 1.7 inches fell in the Friendswood area...hey, share some with the rest of us. Well, it looks like there will be even more showers and thunderstorms this weekend with Sunday being the most likely day. Additional cloud cover with keep highs in the low 90s on Saturday and upper 80s on Sunday.

Let's do skyline or horizonte, pronounced or-ree-ZONE-tay. I think the Houston horizonte is very pretty--but where are the kayakers? See AND MORE section for more on that.

For rainy periods like we are expecting this weekend, our award winning DVD, Let's Learn Spanish with Frank & Paco, Volume 1 is just the ticket. Order your copy from You can also order from,,,,,, and For our English as a Second Language (ESL) version, go to

Have you been downtown lately? I can't help but me amused (and tell me if I am missing something)...have you seen those banners hanging on the posts? They show a beautiful Houston skyline but the foreground, there are two people kayaking. Now, I'm people go kayaking on Buffalo Bayou? More importantly, as visitors see downtown Houston for the first time--do you look around to see where these kayakers are? Just wondering...

Our poll on the tax incentive for trading in high gas using vehicles is closed. 20% said they are considering it and 80% said they are not. Thanks to all who participated.

My new poll is about the demands on our schedules. What takes most of your energy. Only one answer is allowed. Thanks in advancing for answering.

Have a great weekend! Enjoy the rain!
