My day job is at a company that builds oil rigs in the Gulf of Mexico. This most recent storm must have been a lot of fun — at least according to the pictures. Keep in mind that this was “just” a tropical storm. They told all non-essential people to leave downtown the day the storm hit shore. A little wind and rain is all I saw. Looks like it was much worse out in the gulf.
We’re supposed to get another one of these in about a week or so.
