Outta Here!

Most of the computer models show Gustav heading straight for New Orleans. There are a few models that show this monster taking a late western turn...and that's us, west of New Orleans. We know the chance of this storm hitting us are extremely slim at this moment, yet with three young boys we don't want to take any chances. If the hurricane shifts tomorrow and starts heading our way, all of Houston will decide to evacuate. We will risk sitting in traffic for hours and hours on end (lesson learned by many of our dear friends who sat on the freeway for 24 hours to get to San Antonio - a three hour trip - during Hurricane Rita three years ago!). We are heading for the Texas Hill Country with photo albums, this years' school materials and enough clothes to last a week or two. We will be offline until Tuesday when we return, the storm having hopefully missed us.

To all our friends who are in the current path of Gustav, we are praying for you.

I probably don't have to tell you - I emphatically agree. Get thee to safety. Be well. You can always veer slightly north and keep following -I35. I know a family that'd take you all in in a heartbeat - only 15 min from I35. *hugs*

Kiss those boy heads for me. Thinking of you all.

Yikes! Sounds like you have a good plan. Gotta love the flexibility of homeschooling. I pray that you will all be safe and so will you home!
