Hurricane Rita

We lucked out--Hurricane Rita blew around us. Here is the worst part of our storm:

We had nothing--a bit of wind and no rain at all (which we really could have used...). I feel really badly for those on the Louisiana/Texas border who did have a much more difficult time. But I think that, regardless of the horrendous traffic problems, the evacuation was smart and timely given what would have happened had the storm blow our way. The shelters were emptying out on Sunday and people are heading home. Gas is fairly difficult to come by, so some people are stuck.

Since we were trying to make our daughter feel less frightened, we were promising a storm party. No storm--what do you do? You make your own rain!
