The Ex-Roommate is deploying to work in relief, rescue, and recovery operations on the Gulf Coast today. I know that she and her colleagues will do their best to help people who were foolish enough to stay on Galveston Island, and I know they could use your prayers today.
Here in Austin, we have some wind, but no rain. It was cloudy for the 300 or so of us in line at REI early this morning, but the sun's starting to break through. For those of you stuck in Houston without power, you're in our thoughts and prayers as well. The city of Houston says you need to boil your water, and to please stay off the roads so emergency personnel can have easy access.
