Hurricane Rita is officially dead, and good riddens. One thing I’ve learned from this is that the media loves to indulge us with fantastic and probable events that will cause death, destruction, and chaos. The Weather Channel did the BEST coverage of Rita. They said Rita has the potential of growing stronger AND getting weaker. It gave facts, rather than the “OMG, we’re all going to die” news.
I hope everyone east of Houston and in Beaumont are recovering. They are currently kicking everyone of Beaumont EVEN if they have enough food, water, supplies, and electricity. They are telling residents to leave the city with no where to go. The Ford Park/Arena isn’t even open as a shelter, but it was open for Katrina victims.
