I wish everyone the best of luck, and hope that all is well with anyone in that vicinity.
Thanks for your post. We were not in Rita's path, but many of our family and friends were. We had 6 people staying with us from Wednesday until Sunday night. We really made it a fun time and it helped ease everyone's worries. Luckily our home can fit everyone comfortably. The trip to our home was very taxing, what would have normally taken 3.5 hours took some up to 16 hours. The drive back was much better averaging about 6 hours. Everyone we know was not severely affected by the hurricane. We are thankful for that, but our thoughts and prayers are with those that were not so lucky.
