( 8:42 AM ) teahouse
A few of my friends have safely evacuated Houston and gotten out of the path of Hurricane Rita. Among them were people who'd previously evacuated New Orleans, and were now on the road again.
They were stuck on the Interstate for 12 hours. One of them called me from the road, I got onto Mapquest from my office computer and helped them navigate backroads through the state of Texas.
It was a caravan, and I was Command Central.
I'm leaving town myself, heading out for a few days to visit the Sister. I need to get away!
Everyone have a lovely September weekend, and I'll be back next week. #
