Hurricane Rita is bearing down on the Gulf Coast and a lot of people have decided it’s time to get out of dodge. All of my friends here at school have been telling about their parents leaving Houston tomorrow morning around midnight and going somewhere safer. It’s starting to sound like midnight is the time to leave, so if anyone is in Houston and leaving at midnight, please take your camera so that I can see a midnight traffic jam.
My mom and brothers are set to leave Houston around 3am tomorrow and head here to Lubbock till the storm passes through while my dad is going to ride it out and make sure our house makes it.
Keep Houston and the surrounding areas in your prayers. There 6+ million people in Houston and the suburbs around it, this storm could have a heavy toll.
