Well, for us, fortunately, Hurricane Rita was the Comet Kohoutek of hurricanes. It landed early this morning in Lousiana, then skirted into far east Texas. So far we've had some fairly gusty winds, but no rain at all. No flooding, no power outages, and no loss of satellite dish reception (so we saw Atlantis and Battlestar last night, yeah!!).

AT made it in Thursday night around 11, after about 12 hours on the road. Alone the way he saw that Navasota had totally blocked off all exits from Highway 6 into town, to keep the riff-raff from even thinking about stopping. "Welcome to Navasota, don't let the door hit your butt on the way out."

Friday I was off from work, and I staked down the sailboat and canoe, gathered up the lawn furniture, planters, etc. around the corner of the patio, and even managed to pull my motorcycle into the garage behind Martha's Prius. Just barely. I guess if we hadn't done all that work, we'd have been hit hard. So we're very lucky and recognize that.

So today I grilled hamburgers for lunch, since it was windy and cloudy and the burgers would cook before I would. I suspect the remainder of the weekend will be spent industriously laying around, reading (or writing in Martha's case), watching DVDs, and playing on the internet. I should probably go into work tomorrow and move the servers back down to the basement before Monday.
