It sucks to live in the Gulf right now...
So your home in NOLA is flodded with raw sewage, gators and the odd shark fin sighting. then you get jacked by the local 25th street rollers, cruising on a bass boat, formerly the pride and joy of a diehard Foxworthy fan.
they bus you to the hell hole that is Houston, where the humidity and temperature make you long for the death and misery back home.
and then today your neighbor, Galveston starts mandatory evacuations, and Houston's mayor calld for voluntary evacuations and business/school shut-downs for the added time one should take to evacuate. (Houston just issued mandatory for 2am Thursday.)
but where do they take you, the NOLA refugee/evacuee/whatever-eee? you get bussed again to three lovely destinations of your choosing: Ohio, Oklahoma, or Arkansas.
and you still haven't had mail for weeks, nevermind a regualr life, regular meals, regular medical care, school for your kids, clothes that fit, etc...
I like Texas, I've lived here all my life, even on the coast for awhile, but ugh, this is gonna suck the root.
Rita is Cat5 with sustained top winds of 165 and pressure of 904mb and falling (bad.)
