A friend of mine left her home tonight with family and pets to drive out to safety, and friends of hers have stayed behind.
To all on the roads tonight and tomorrow godspeed find safety, to those who choose to remain behind if you rode out Katrina and Rita use every skill you learned for survival and stay safe.
I am thankful also that the tragedy of the Katrina pets, while it brought out the best in many people, showed what a mistake it was to leave them. They are being allowed to be evacuated too.
