Katrina report

While the storm was several hundred miles from Washington Texas, The nearby town of Brenham, approximately 70 miles northwest of Houston, had all its hotels filled with a lot of Louisiana lisence plates in the lot.

My sister in Lafeyette said they had little effect from Katrina, other than her two grandsons getting up early to watch the storm on TV. My brother-in-law spent the past few days scrambling to get his crews off the rigs in the Gulf, and now must scramble to get them back on the access the damages.

My speculation is that the storm went to the east of most of the rigs. The Louisiana Offshore Terminel used to unload imported crude may have been in the path of the storm. Judging by the falling prices of crude, the market has pretty much decided that the damage is minimal.
