I have to say it: this is just surreal to be watching the news with pictures of places in Houston that I know. In case you are wondering, our house in Kingwood is north of downtown Houston, and is at the one o'clock position when you see the Houston map that looks like a spider web. If we were home, we would not be evacuating, but we could still have storm damage.
Our faithful friend Janitha has put lawn furniture away; other than that all that is left to do is to pray, wait and see. It is an interesting storm; if you haven't already, take a look at this article, which will explain how really odd this storm is. I've also read that it is taking the same path as the 1901 Galveston Hurricane that killed 8,000 people.
Tomorrow we will have our few borrowed bits of furniture moved into our downtown apartment. The cats were picked up from the kennel yesterday and have already been moved into the unfurnished apartment. They really missed us...and we kinda missed them too.
So tomorrow we will settle into to one nest, and keep a wary eye electronically on our other nest.
What a life.
Stay tuned for updates.
