I just spoke to Wang Chi. He's back in Beaumont and cooking breakfast and being a good little boy scout. My dad is also still in Beaumont and has taken the screens off his windows so mom is picturing all the critters he's sharing the house with.
Regarding our trip in last night, have you ever driven in Houston traffic...at night...to a place you've never been before to drop your aunt off at her daughter's house...with three cars following you...trying to not get killed by people driving 90 miles an hour and at the same time not lose everyone? That's why I kissed my car. My legs were shaking when we got to my cousin's house in The Woodlands but we made it safely. That's what counts. Then, we had to drive another hour to my son's house here in Alvin.
By the way, the survivalists are right. I'll post more on this later but for now, take heed. If there is ever a disaster in your area (of the bombing, terrorist sort), just start running. Believe me, your car will be useless and you will be stuck in traffic about ten feet from your driveway. Our evacuation here was staggered and there is no way anyone would have gotten out alive if everyone had to (or tried to) leave at once .
On another note, I won't be checking in on all of your blogs while I'm staying at my son's because my son has dial-up and I don't want to tie up his phone so I'll only get online to do some posting.
Love to everyone and peace out.
