The MO is your source for personal updates during Rita. He's going to "disaster-blog" as long as we have power and internet connectivity. For a list of local bloggers, see Laurence Simon's This Blog is Full of Crap. (And don't miss his explanation of hurricane categories!)
This morning we bagged art. I already packed my duffel bag with desperation essentials so now I am just following the MO's instructions. He is much more organized than I am. I am operating on a cup of coffee in one hand (those of you who know realize how odd that is) and a cream soda in the other. This way I can use either hand to swill sudafed as necessary to dry up the snot that is being generated in copious quantities by all the dust we're stirring up. I guess as soon as I have a beer, I'll have all the major food groups represented in my bloodstream.
In all seriousness, the MO is in charge and taking care of things.
