Celebrating Women...for the Real World
Saturday, September 24, 2005 Ready Are Not....Here They Come

We had to go out today and check on some homes for some friends of ours and Big G's mom's house to make sure they were OK. As you can see in the picture above it was a "ghost town". We drove on the feeder road on HW 290 because there was a line of about 10 police cars with lights flashing going onto HW 290.

His mom was at her home and she had power so we stayed and visited until our son called and told us we had power again. It is already starting; can you believe the traffic coming into Houston? This is going to get bad folks because I took these pitures around 3:00 PM traveling out-bound on HW 290. They are telling everyone not to come back just yet because we have no gas and EVERYTHING is closed.

I am glad that we prepared for Rita and even more glad that it is over for us and that we had no damage. Even though I am proud of what we did to prepare, I will do some things differently next time. First thing is LESS JUNK FOOD. If it had been a real emergency, most of what I had would have been gone and we probably would have been in trouble by Monday evening.
