    I hope you will come through this without harm or loss.

      Our attempt to flee to safer grounds this morning resulted in a wasted half tank of gas that only got us 1 mile down the Interstate. A normal 4 hour drive to Dallas was reported as taking some evacuees +24 hours. With very little gasoline in the city we realized that we'd soon be destitute and still in the Hurricane's path if we continued on our exodus so we decided to stay behind and try our luck at home.

        That's what I was thinking earlier today, all those people stuck on the highway are going to be "Sitting Ducks" for Rita. I wish all of you good luck. Being a spiritual man, I will pray for your safety.
