Well, gang, it's 4:00 a.m. and I think that this is as bad as it's going to get. We lost power about 4 times and it was out for only about 30 seconds each time. Of course, living in the River Oaks area helps that a lot. There will be no flooding here. Lucky us!
The newscasters are trying really hard to keep their viewers intersted but there really isn't anything out there that's newsworthy about this storm. It's just very very windy out there and a little wet.
So, that's it. Houston evacuated a million or so people and it turns out that it wasn't really necessary. I'm not saying that they shouldn't have, they absolutely did the right thing; it's just that it seems that after all that, Rita should have made a stronger appearance.
