Guest Blog II: Morning has broken

Mr. C again.

Mrs. C became worried about Hurricane Rita's path and called to check on me and Junior C. Much appreciated except that the call was made at 5:46 a.m., which at my home was 4:46 a.m.

Things for people to think about:

a) even though Rita passed us by(and we feel for all South Louisianans and Texans), there are thousands of homes covered with tarps and blue plastic here. I am sure that from a satellite photo it would look like a spider web of blue for 50 miles;

b) the ground is so saturated with water that rain just puddles on top of the grass and some areas had renewed flooding from the inch or two of rain we had;

c) some people, like my family, are lucky and have the amenities back (as of last night), others still live under tarps, some live in houses that were flooded, some live in the non-damaged second floors, and some have left our Coast never to return. Is the word diaspora?

Hopefully, Mrs. C will return to her daily internet epistles soon,
Until then,

Mr. C
