I just received word that my Mom and group arrived safely at their destination near Dallas. They ended up leaving the mandatory evacuation route due to the traffic problem and went all over back roads until they got there about 1:30 this morning. Cell phone service is already having trouble all over Texas and she was finally able to get hold of my brother here in Houston with the news. My sister who lives in Beaumont left yesterday for the Dallas area and I haven’t heard of her progress yet.
My household is full of nervous energy as all preparation has been completed and there is nothing left to do, leaving everyone charged up with no outlet to work off the nervousness. Me, I’m sitting here enjoying the connectivity while it lasts and listening to the sweet bluesy classic rock sound of Led Zeppelin. Just seems right, somehow.
