Watching

We are becoming obsessed with the storm. Either we are watching the TV national newscasts, watching time bites of the local Houston stations newscasts via computer, or reading weather service bulletins. It is like watching a train wreck happening, we can't take our eyes and minds off Rita. Now we are waiting for the next advisory to see if the storm continues to move North which could put Houston on the east side of the eye. That would be a much better situation.

We just talked with one of our sons in Houston. He is the one with the two little boys. At this point they play to stay. He said that most of the people in his neighborhood are staying. He is going over to our house today to bring in the garden furniture and also to wrap my negatives in garbage bags and put them in the darkroom that doesn't have a window that might break.

Yesterday afternoon I felt helpless and sad. This morning my spirits are better. Oh, I still feel quite helpless but not so sad. Still very worried for my family and friends.

Billie,

Are you able to receive CCN (USA), or do you get CNN (International Edition)?

Do you have cable there or do you use a satellite dish? If you have a satellite dish, which satellite service do you have?
