So I'm back in Victoria, came back last night after I recieved word from my work that we would be coming back online Saturday morning.
I left my cushy surroundings in San Marcos (Thanks to my sister in law) and headed back to Victoria. A lot of things go through your head when you realize that your little town and your modest home dodged a major bullet.
First... My brother and creative counterpart ended up staying in Houston... Not because he wanted to, but because after waiting in traffic for 12 hours and only going about 12 miles, they soon came to almost no gas in the car and turned around choosing to sit in a house rather than a car. It took him 15 minutes to get back home versus the 12 hours in standstill traffic....
When the Governor of Texas, Rick Perry was asked about all the motorists running out of gas... he commented that he informed all the citizens to gas up before they left... I wonder how he would like it if that SUV with tinted windows he rode in should happen to run out of gas or break down after being in gridlock all day? Hey the governor is a jerk...
Anyway, Houston was alright, while ol' Johnny boy may be without gas in his car, he is in good spirits, and we will both continue to work on projects to make the squares cringe...
I hung out with my parents Friday night. We made fun of the news reporters who decided to report outside in the wind... never fails. We were in an abnormally good mood once we realized that our family was now out of danger. Sure Rita was going somewhere, for that our prayers go out to any sort of victims, but I'll tell you from a first hand knowledge, being an evacuee, well it sucks. I didn't tell anyone while I was lifting weights in that swanky fitness room as a guest in those apartments to relieve stress Thursday night, I suppose that's a pride thing. The thought of coming home to a rubble of a house, made me queasy, and I'm glad it didn't happen.
Well, who's to say it still can't? We're not out of hurricane season yet. I'm just glad right now, the people I care about are safe. I hope the rest of you dear readers are too.
See you guys.
