So it looks like Rita is going to come a good bit more our way. Whoopee.
I'm glad it looks like Houston and Galveston will get spared the brunt, I am. And here in Baton Rouge we're only expecting 30-40 mph winds (only, can you tell we're hurricane-weary?), though lots and lots of rain as Rita is expected to make landfall and just sit her fat ass on us for a few days instead of moving on.
The most westerly parts of the state won't fare so well, especially our southwest portions. Again, though, what can you do? When Mother Nature wants to have her way with you, there's little to do but sit and hope she finishes quickly so you can get to putting your life back together.
State workers here in Baton Rouge are only working a half day (I know, I don't see the point either), so we go home at 12pm. It's Hurricane Party ("Rita Gone Wild") the rest of the weekend. What else are we going to do? I'm just hoping we don't lose electricity again because that would truly, utterly SUCK.
If you're in Rita's path - stay safe; I wish you and yours the best of luck.
