So Rita's dropped to Cat 4, and predictions have her at Cat 3 by landfall. She's also moved far enough east that her predicted path swooped over us and to the other side. Poor Louisiana must have really pissed off the weather gods, 'cause now Rita's heading over that-a-way.

No idea when we're going to lose power or internet - or, depending on how far away Rita moves, if we will at all. It's still possible that she'll shift enough to just give us some rain and wind.
The house is mostly ready, last-minute stuff should be done by noonish tomorrow.

Current house list:
- Mum
- Dad
- Myself
- Gabe
- Emma
- Anne (her parents are dumb and have made no preparations at all. None. So we are keeping her)
- elderly neighbor (she and her daughter decided to stay at her house. Her house tends to flood. If the rain gets real bad, Gabe will carry her over here, if necessary.)
- elderly neighbor's daughter
- aunt Alice
- uncle Jerry
- their dog Lacy
- Belle
- two birds belonging to our neighbors. They are cute. I have conversations with one of them.

I'm putting LJ's number on my cell, so even if our power dies for a while I might be able to make a phone post to let people know I'm alive. Tomorrow will be busy.

I'll see you all when the skies clear.
