Running From Rita - Part 5


If anyone out there can do me a favor, can you please get a message to the wonderful person who gifted me with this beautiful cricket? Please let her know that every precaution is being taken with this wonderful creature to protect it from the wrath of Hurricane Rita.

Unfortunately, this beautiful cricket is at considerable risk from the amusement-seeking of Hurricane Julianna. (See her left hand in the background here.)

P.S.
Not many ducks around out there. Maybe they finally got the message.

We at iTunes are afraid that if you don't get your blogging in the face of a Cat 5 hurricane a** moving, we will be forced to approve the Stone Temple Pilots song, Dead and Bloated for your hurricane enjoyment....

Or, maybe you are hoping to stay around and score one of those plasma tv's?

I was just wondering if you would mind if I took that cricket out?

We could say, meet?

We have a nasty cold front approaching. I see some decidely grayish clouds approaching from the northwest. This could be touch-and-go for awhile here.

Any chance you could run by Nacogdoches for me on your way out of town? I'm hoping to buy a set of Carbon Fiber wheels from a guy there. I'd hate for them to end up in the wind.

That would be great.

Perhaps we could try to make your blog famous. There were lots of Katrina blogs which got lots of traffic.

Just trying to be optimistic.

I would like to see Rett on CNN, hunkered down in his basement, with his lap-top and two ducks, alternating between blogging and party poker all the while his house is being ripped to shreds around him. Maybe he would get lucky and they would send Tucker Carlson over to his house.

I think that he would like that.

Can you persuade my friends that we should drop the ACL plan? It sounds they are going to cancel Saturday. http://www.aclfestival.com/. And I don't see how you cancel Saturday without Sunday. And don't they have to break down the stages prior to Saturday?

And I don't want to take a hotel room from someone who needs it.

Can you bike out? Perhaps with those kiddie trailers and such.

Biking out ... not a good option. Ambient temperatures out there are approximately one hundred degrees. Fahrenheit, not Kelvin.

C'mon spiff, you know you wanna get your jumpsuit on!

Actually Rett, cycling is a self-cooling activity (if you wear the required uniform). So I don't think it would be the temperature that would get you, but the fact that you'd have to hump it for at least 100 plus miles, all the while that big bad mamma jamma would be bearing down on you...
I'd fly down there just to see that.

WHEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE

An interesting way to look at the traffic is this:

People are generally averaging under 5 mph out there on the roads in their cars. Hurrican Rita is moving N-NW at about 9 mph. So because of the congestion, the hurricane is making better time than the drivers.

Unbelievable.
