Apparently we’re in the “cone of possibilities” (I swear the local news guy said this) for the upcoming hurricane Rita, but I can’t seem to get too worked up over it. I could just be having a reaction to the drama-news of KPRC though, kind of like south’s reaction to the Katrina catastrophe. If you listen to the news and water cooler talk it’s as if hurricanes have just come into existence this summer.
With my luck god will smite down Houston just to show me up. I guess I should buy some water and candles just in case. At least with this hurricane you won’t have to wonder what kind of drinks to serve at the hurricane party, but it will be tough to come by ice without power.
