From the Center of the Storm

Steve Bates, proprietor of The Yellow Doggerel Democrat, is in full hunker-down mode in Houston waiting for Rita. Because YDD is hosted in Houston, it may be down during the storm (at the time I posted this, it was not operational), so he may be able to post from his alternate site, the YDD Annex.

Having been through the overture on Tuesday, I can only imagine what it’s going to be like for him and the millions of others along the Texas coast and inland. I’ve got a cousin in the Navy in Beaumont; I hope he and his family are well out of there.

Here’s a link to the Houston Chronicle and their coverage.

Good luck, Steve and Stella, and thanks to Bryan at Why Now? for keeping tabs on them.
