Bugging Out

It looks as if we will be bugging out ahead of Rita. We live 60 or 70 miles inland, and I don't expect flooding, but I worry that winds will knock the power out and we'll be stuck for a while with no power and no A/C and maybe no sewers, which would be dire.

I have had trouble getting Niles -- who has the only car -- to take this emergency seriously. He seems to think we're the only ones in the Houston area who might be thinking of leaving, so we can wait until the last minute.

We have new neighbors downstairs. They're from Mississippi. Guess why they came here.
