Tropical Storm Bill

billread640360-pngHere in Sug­ar Land we’re under a trop­i­cal storm warn­ing for Bill which made land­fall this morn­ing.  Its been pret­ty unevent­ful for us so far, with a min­i­mal amount of rain and no wind to speak of.  How­ev­er they are fore­cast­ing heavy rain and winds for our area tonight and tomor­row morn­ing as the mois­ture from the Gulf of Mex­i­co gets drawn up to the north by the high pres­sure sys­tem sit­ting over us.

 The lit­tle graph­ic above gives an idea of the track of the storm but for a bet­ter overview go to the local KPRC 2 web­site.

It’s fair­ly typ­i­cal that just as Stephen is hav­ing knee surgery (Wednes­day morn­ing) there should be this humon­gous storm💥.  Roll on Wednes­day evening.

Adventures & Learning

Sunday bike ride in Sugar Land

Its Sun­day and a gor­geous day with 72F and slight cloud cov­er.  We decid­ed to go and see if we could nav­i­gate the traf­fic on High­ways 6 & 59 to make it to the Town Cen­tre and beyond.  Here’s a map of our lit­tle route with­out the traf­fic details.

It says it was about 6.3 miles but felt much longer due to the fre­quent stops to nego­ti­ate traf­fic and cross­walks on the major inter­sec­tions.  We cov­ered urban bik­ing, love­ly lakes, a cou­ple of Star­bucks, the city Mall (who would think you could bike to Dil­lard’s!), and final­ly a tri­umphant jaunt around our neigh­bor­hood lake.

Bril­liant fun.  Below are a few pho­tos to mark the day.
