Well, we're staying to ride out Rita. As of 10 a.m. this morning it's tracked to hit somewhere between Galveston and Lake Charles, which means we'll definitely see tropical storm winds and rain. According to what the Army Corps of Engineers said yesterday, the levees in New Orleans should hold, though you can see here that some areas of New Orleans area already beginning to reflood. They may be beginning to doubt themselves about that levee comment.

We should be safe in Marrero, though. There were no levee breaches here so we shouldn't have to worry about flooding, only power. We have a generator, so if need be we can plug in a TV and an a/c unit, and we have propane for our barbecue, so we can cook if necessary. We're fully stocked with food and water too.

Internet access may go away soon, so if I don't post again today I will as soon as it kicks back in.
