Thank you to everyone

I want to express my heartfelt thanks to everyone for the kind words and offers of hospitality. I'm truly humbled by the outpouring of generosity so many of you have shown. Thank you all very, very much.

I am cautiously becoming a bit more optimistic about how this storm will turn out, based on stuff like this. Nothing will make me happier right now than for Rita to be far less than originally advertised. To everyone who is in Houston or elsewhere in its path, please stay safe.

(I was almost done with a long writeup of our eighteen-hour oddysey from yesterday when a nap-resisting Olivia struck a well-aimed blow at the Escape key and wiped it all out. Sigh. Maybe later.)

As far as I'm concerned, Chuck, your telling the story about the drive that wouldn't end isn't as important as the fact that you and your family are safe.

Hopefully, the rest of the people that live in Houston, Galveston, Corpus Christi, and the rest of the threatened areas remain safe as well.

12 hours to Austin starting Wed at 4 PM, so I truly sympathize. Glad you all got there safely.
