And so we pray.

Hurricane Rita is approaching steadily, and people are evacuating en masse, thankfully. Traffic through town last night, and to an extent, this morning, was bumper to bumper. Parking lots in town look like trailor parks with people having parked their campers and trailors to ride out the storm. Many gas stations are completely out of gas, and the grocery stores are busy places with people waiting in the bread and bottled water aisles.

Friends from farther south have already evacuated, and I'm so glad. I feel better knowing they are safe, though I know this is hard on them. They took with them the houseguest who was displaced by Katrina.

We should begin getting rains and slight winds later this morning, with both picking up as the day goes on. Mike will work at the shelter - opened this morning - at our church all afternoon and into the evening. Then, he'll come home to wait with us.

There are so many needs already, thanks to Katrina, and this will create more and more. People are tired and scared and unsure.

And so... we pray.
