Hi Everyone,

Karen called earlier and she asked that I tell you that she is no dummy!     She is sure not going to New Orleans to be rescued from some rooftop!

What she is doing, is buying more plastic containers at Wal-Mart today to keep what little they do have in, (just in case,) and staying put where they are until it looks like they have to leave.  If that happens they will drive north and stay "somewhere" for a night or two until the coast is clear to go back to the hunting camp.

She wondered if you could all just please blow at the same time on Thursday and see if you can shift that damn hurricane away from Crowley.

She sounded really positive, and man do I admire that in her.  She is one strong woman I tell you.  
  
Wish them all luck folks for again, she and a lot of our other dear friends need it.  All the folks in Florida, Texas, good grief!  May you stay safe.

My lord I don't know about you but I can't take this much longer, and worry myself sick.

mysteria, Isabel is my ace in the hole. She can WHISPER with hurricane-force winds! I just have to aim her at the storm, whisper George Bush in her ear and the two will cancel each other out in no time!!

Susan....

suthern, I hope you're on your way out of town.  So far, we are thinking we'll stay.  We are on the west side of town in a part that usually doesn't flood as bad as other parts.  So far...we're staying put, but that may change.  Love to you all for your concerns and prayers.  ......jo

Marge & iliana... I love you, ladies... I truly do. *S*

I will be getting out at some point... I'd probably be okay for a weaker hurricane, but I'm in the flood zone for cat 3 and surge zone for cat 4 and above. But right now, the same man who's recommending that other businesses release all but key personnel is keeping this very non-key person buried in paperwork regarding Katrina evacuees... *sigh*

But I'm on Daddy-duty this weekend and can't trade off, so I'll be leaving for his place Friday after work at the latest... complete with a very unwilling little Mama Kitty... I've gotta go and leaving her is NOT an option. *S*

I hope I can leave earlier... driving in heavy rain/wind isn't my idea of a fun time... neither is being stuck in traffic jams. *S*

And I hope Mama Kitty survives all the upheaval... I know I'm losing her... but the thought of hastening the loss hurts.

My thoughts and prayers are with everyone in the path of Rita. I'd be happy to have someone up here in the hills of New Hampshire.

Be safe and get outta Dodge!

hugs, Marti

what right wing, Mike?
But why wait for a hurricane, flood or tornado to come and visit Oregon? We don't have hurricanes here!
If you head this way, we simply MUST meet for a poetic lunch even if you choose an official B&B to stay in, I'm only an hour to the coast and an hour to Portland.
All this, and still didn't connect this past summer with Larry C, whose Harley somehow didn't make the cruise south of Portland! !!!!!

Suthern, you and your family be really cautious, and I hope you get out earlier.  Poor kitty.

Wishing you all a huge wind change!  Huge!  I can't even imagine the  anxiety of waiting for these to hit, so take care.

They're letting the schools out and closing many major companies.....my husband works for an oil services co. and they have told him to take Thurs. & Friday off because they want to take care of the big computers.  Anyway....that will give us some time to sandbag the parts of the house that will leak water in.  We'll be staying unless there is a mandatory evacuation of our area....so far it is voluntary.  

Suthern....take care of you, Mamma Kitty and your Dad....be safe.   .....jo

Anyone who needs to can come here to Oregon. I have an extra bedroom. I live somewhere between Kacey and Noah in Aloha. A little over an hour to the coast and 20 minutes or so to downtown Portland. No hurricanes here.
