Six hours ago I was thinking that the Galveston/Houston area would be spared and that Rita would hit the TX/LA border as a Cat 4. She's not cooperating in that regard. Looks on IR like she's well on her was to 165+ again... and back on track for Galveston. Yes, the water is not as hot closer to the coast, so the storm should weaken, but the surge is already being generated.
