Re: global warming/Rita
Actually, once they found out that another hurricane was coming, they were
happy to get out of the shelters.....after what they experienced in the NO

There were only a few left anyway, most have already been given apartments,
houses, or hotel rooms to stay in.

schools in the area will be closed from tomorrow on already, even here in
Houston. The Mayor is calling for voluntary evacuation of Houston areas, mandatory
for coastal areas. They forecast with a Cat 4 storm that anywhere south of

Hoping it will go far south, maybe Mexico....but that seems doubtful.
I'm assuming Scotty has already evacuated, or will do so. Anyone heard from

their way up here; we were ready for them.
