Batten Down the Hatches

by: Justin Mills | on: 2005-09-21 00:00:00
Well, Sam Houston closed up shop this afternoon in preparation for Hurricane Rita. My job is closing early on Friday and not opening on Saturday, as well. My boss lives in Houston so he'll be busy evacuating. My parents are gonna stay right there in The Woodlands, and I'll just ride everything out here in Huntsville.

If there's any supplies left in town (I've already heard rumors of shortages of water and batteries), I'll be buying batteries, ammunition for my .30-30 and my .38 Special, and some canned food later tonight.

Hoodwink, I'm worried about you down there in old Baytown. Are you getting out?

UPDATE: Look at this series of images (it's an automated slideshow, just wait) of the predicted path of Hurricane Katrina and the actual path of Hurricane Katrina (shown in black). I'm not filled with confidence in the predicted paths for Hurricane Rita that show it striking south of the Houston area.

Y'all be careful! Rita just went up to a 5 this evening.

Are you sure you want to stay in Huntsville? You, your .30-30, and your .38 special are welcome to wait out the hurricane with me in Fort Worth. C'mon up, buddy. It'll be like a sleep over.

Thanks for the offer, but I'm braving it out and working Friday till eight P.M. We're closed on Saturday, of course, but my boss is counting on me to close the store. By the time I'm free, I-45 will be a parking lot.

I-45 is already a parking lot. As I write, our friend JennyH has traveled some 10 miles in an hour and a half. Regardless, the further away from H-town, the better. Plus, it would be good times. Think about it.

I would take his offer if I were you Dubya.
