Evacuation Again?

I am desperately hoping that Juannie, the puppers and I do not have to evacuate again. The painful memory of our evacuation for Ivan last year is still way too fresh. But Hurricane Dennis looks like it is going to come very close to New Orleans as a Category 3 or higher. So we are making our plans and checking them twice. Dennis don't care who's naughty or nice. Dennis is coming around.

We have a dear friend in Jackson, Mississippi who has offered to shelter Juannie, the dogs and me. I am trying not to let this get to me but the stress is building. Everyone in my office is understandably on edge as they scramble to make hotel reservations or find a kind person who lives out of harms way who can take them in.

I am so not ready to face all this again. I am worrying about my little house. But we live in a bowl that's below sea level so this is an unfortunate fact of life six months of the year.

We evacuated too. I think this time if I leave, I'm not coming back. I'm starting to really hate it here. I try not to, but I do.

I was just thinking today, "It would be nice to live in Austin? It's Southwesty, fun and no hurricanes."

Does it get humid in San Antonio? I would like to be somewhere that doesn't have the funky humidity all the time.

I don't know, but that is one of the reaons I loved el paso... little humidity. We had this thing called a swamp cooler instead of ac. Basically it threw water in the air and as the water evaporated it cooled the house down. It worked great. Here it would just cause it to rain in the house:(

good luck
I hope you don't have to evacuate. We have an arena near by where evacuees come sometimes in the summer because of the forest fires. It's like they are trapped in little bubbles. I'm glad you have a friend to go to if you have to leave. Good luck.
