Today's Blog is brought to you by the letter 'H'. . .



HURRICANES -- Enough already! Some of you noticed Roxanne's comment that her family will be evacuating Houston (I think on Thursday). What a mess! Since Louisiana is generally the best way to learn how NOT to do things, Rick Perry (governor of Texas) has learned his lesson. Evacuations are in progress, I'm fairly certain we've already been declared a disaster area, and troops are at the ready. Roxanne reports that the best she could do in the way of groceries last night was a can of Pringles and a bag of tortilla chips. The only canned vegetables available were mustard greens. She passed on those. Safe travels, Langleys.

This is as good a place as any to show some pictures my dad emailed me. I am so sorry I am unable to credit the photographer, but these show Katrina in her destructive majesty as she rolled in:


Isn't that gorgeous? I think this one looks like God is REALLY ticked off. . .

And this one looks like you had BETTER have your life in order. . .

I was considering doing a blog entry about "little known facts" about me, but I'm such an open book I think you already know everything. But I just thought of this one -- I LOVE to watch weather. As creepy as those pictures look, I wish I were there to see it (in some building made of Kryptonite!)


HEAT -- Enough already! I'm pretty sure we've already broken 2 heat records this week, and today will be close. I'm melting. . . .

HUMBUG -- Troy and I were looking at our October budget today. By this time of year I have generally bought a Christmas present or two, and am really nailing down my list. Can you even imagine? Our heat index is about 102*. All I can think of is getting into the air conditioning! Please no Christmas. I will probably be sorry later, but I can't even begin to think about Christmas right now! And we got our Land's End Kids catalog today -- featuring snow boots.

Awesome Pictures! Awesome as in the bringing about of awe, not as in cool, you know what I mean.

I hope your friend has better luck evacuating than ours. Our friend is 11 weeks pregnant, has two other children and had to leave her husband, who is a policeman, behind. It took her 16 hours to make the 6 hour trip from Houston to Monroe. They just arrived moments ago. What a mess.

I'm amazed that someone can make it from Houston to Monroe in 6 hours. . .even on good days it take us 7.
