Yes, we ARE in the path of Rita as of Thursday afternoon. We are inland, but may get hurricane force winds. We have supplies. We are staying. Please say prayers for us and the entire Texas Gulf Coast area! I'll be mostly offline before the storm to leave my telephone open. May be without electricity for some time afterwards......so don't get anxious! I'll be back to give a word of how we faired as soon as it's over and we have electricity and phone service!
