    Update on Rita 2

    Well, it looks like my family made it out safely. Rita turned so far east that all they got was a little wind and some sprinkles--no real rain. They never lost power, although some people around them did, and when it was all over there was nothing more than a lot of leaves and a few small branches on the ground.

    Needless to say, I'm relieved. If Rita had turned north later, it would have hit Houston dead on, and been much stronger.

    My friend Dennis knew of an acquaintance that spent 14 hours on the road trying to get out of Houston, and 45 minutes driving back home when they gave up. Crazy.

    Maybe God's telling us not to rebuild New Orleans...it's in bad shape. Or at least move it a little. How many times in the history of a world has a city been destroyed and rebuilt?? Pundits are talking on TV about the historic move of Americans to the seashore. Maybe this will reverse the trend??
