I Hope Everyone’s All Right.
Mostly Cajun and the Layabout Sailor have both headed for higher ground to get out of Rita’s way, along with tens of thousands of their neighbors. Since Jim lives on his boat, I was heartened to see that Rita bore more Eastward and did not, in fact, slam directly into Galveston harbor. Hopefully the sloop New Dawn will be none the worse for wear when Jim comes home. Dale doesn’t live on his boat, but he was more in the direct path of the storm. Dale, I hope like hell everything is still upright and tight when you get back.
To the rest of you out there that I don’t know, best of luck to you all.
