On the highway today, a national guard convoy passed by heading south, each green army truck pulling a water tank on wheels behind it. They were heading to Houston.
I am thankful that we live this far from there, but if the storm comes ashore there, we'll be holding our breath despite the distance. After all, Rita now consumes half of the Gulf of Mexico.
We've got jugs and bottles for water. We've got cans of food in the pantry and fruit and nuts and bread. And it looks like a crowd of people is heading north to spend some time with us.
And oh, my lucky brother: he chose this weekend to come visit from Chicago.
