Re: global warming/Rita


Scottie and Noreen,
Do whatever you can to stay safe - like you need me to tell you that!
Seriously, I had heard on TVand posted here earlier this week a vague
projection of category 4, then heard something on NPR this am about just a
category 2, so I thought no more of it - though I'm sure even a 2 is no fun.
Now I've begun reading all these emails and I feel so bad for you two and
all the more people who will be losing so much.  I the worst should happen,
or even just bad, please let us know if there's anything we can help you
with.  This is just so awful.

And Pam, geez, I wish I could send you some rain.  Has anyone heard from
Rich?  I don't think he's posted since a few days before his BD.

Kitty
