Looks like we're hitting the road [Sep. 21st, 2005|07:01 pm]

Rita is up to catagory 5; still don't know where it's going to hit but I just got a broadcast phone message from my city's emergency management team strongly recommending voluntary evacuation.

My sister is worried about my parents, so has come up with a "we're all going or we're all staying" plan to convince my (very stubborn) father to leave. The decision isn't final yet, but unless the storm makes a big turn to the south, we will probably be heading out around noon tomorrow and going to Ft. Worth by way of college station.

We got some large ziplock bags to waterproof some of the more important documents around the house but other than that and moving the computer away from the window into an inside closet and making sure we don't have anything out in the yard that will turn into a projectile, I'm not doing anything special before we go. Stuff is stuff; it can always be replaced.

*HUGS* I've been thinking about you. I'm glad you're going. Better safe than sorry. Hopefully it won't be so bad when it hits land. Take good care of you and your family. Update us when you can so we know you're ok.

I just spent a ton of money on food and supplies and now I'm thinking of leaving, too. You know that Ft. Worth is going to be vulnerable after the Hurricane hits and heads North? Still safer than where you are now, though. Good luck to you and your family. You will be in my thoughts.

Ziplock documents... oooo... good idea... adding that to the To-Do List. Thanks!

I'll be out in the Ft worth area visiting my dad. If I see ya we'll wave and let you get back to dealing with your tribe. :P

Take your time on the drive! Got my folks, brother, and Nash and Angie here in Leander. Blake's got Jay and his crew, plus friends from Corpus-a total of 21 people in his house. Be safe! Love ya'll!
