Short - Updated Again

My mom's side of the family have all evacuated (the Port Arthur crew - still the point of expected landfall).

My Aunt Jenny, Uncle Roy, cousin Emilee, and Grandpa are in Victoria (west of the hurricane's path) and may continue on to Corpus Christi. My uncle Barry is still staying (there are quite a few elderly couples who live in my grandfather's neighborhood that aren't leaving so I think he's staying to keep a watch on them). Please continue to pray for safety and safe travel and that all are protected from the storm.

Thank you to everyone for your prayers. It means a lot in all this that I have friends who are concerned.

Friends, if you get a chance please pray for my family as they make the exodus from the Beaumont region of Texas. It looks like that area is going to be ground zero for Rita's landfall. I believe my family is still on the road somewhere and my uncle is staying in Beaumont to ride out the hurricane. Pray for their safety and protection, as well as the same for all in that area. Thank you friends.

I posted "for real" below.

We are in Corpus Christi, thanks for the prayers, they worked. Our house is o.k. but one of our big oaks fell on a neighbor's house. oops! We are enjoying the beaches and ran into our neighbors (Coni and Patrick) at the beach!
More later.
Barry is leaving Beaumont Monday for Houston. It is too hot in B-town without electricity.

Love to all, and thanks for all the prayers.
Aunt Jenny
P.S. Emilee says Hi.
