We are safe at Bubba's house near Dallas - it only took us 5 hours to get here, driveway to driveway, with one stop to let the doggies go potty. Not bad at all; nothing like Rita. We are watching a TV station from Houston and we are very glad we left. A hotel not 2 miles from where we live is being blown apart. Scary stuff.

Will keep ya'll posted. Pray for D... and her family - they stayed (they are further north and further from the water than us). I just heard from her and they are fine.

Just watched that on TV. National news. We're in Corpus. No rain or wind here yet. Maybe we're on the right side of the storm (even though we're on the left-LOL).

Good to know that everybody is fine. What a horrible storm. I live in the Carolinas and the rain has been daunting this week. Stay safe!

Hey there! So glad you all are safe. How's the weather in Dallas? Any word on your house? We have been praying for you all. The kids and I went to San Antonio on Thursday. I've never been through a hurricane and didn't want to stick it out. Any word from D today?(Saturday) I'm praying for her and her family. Take care and update when you can.
