Yo Eddie, bring us some rain already!


I had to pass along this cool photo taken by PogoPossum and posted to the Houston Chronicle's Chron.Commons site. This is a building in Uptown Park near the Galleria reflecting the western sky as Tropical Storm Edouard approached Houston from the east this morning. The effect reminds me of a bad Eighties music video.

We're supposed to get some decent rain out of Edouard here in Austin tonight, but I've only counted about four drops on my windshield so far. I'm going to be mighty preturbed if I mowed the lawn in triple-digit heat yesterday for nothing.

For some reason, this reminds me of the Abracadabra video by Steve Miller. That building wants to reach out and grab ya. All it needs is a cracked-out looking woman twirling around some babushkas with doves flying around and you'd have yourself a REAL music video.

I'm thinking the person to bring this off is whoever designed clothes for Grace Slick during the "Knee Deep in the Hoopla" era.
