Wednesday and Thursday are Weather Aware days due to the potential for locally heavy rainfall. Beware of flooded road-ways and never drive around barricades or into water more than six inches deep. High rainfall rates may reduce visibility and also increase the risk of hydroplaning. Turn around, don’t drown! Isolated strong thunderstorms may develop late Wednesday afternoon, but widespread severe weather does not appear to be likely at this time.
COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) - Birthday greetings to former President George H.W. Bush, who turns 89 today.
In the recent past, the 41st president has marked his birthday with such stunts as skydiving. But he spent nearly two months in a Houston hospital for treatment of a bronchitis-related cough before being discharged in January.
A Bush spokesman said the former president, who lives most of the year in Houston, will celebrate with his family at their summer home in Kennebunkport, Maine. Bush's wife, Barbara, turned 88 years old on Saturday. Relatives are marking both birthdays.
