If you go look at the weather links at Tanker's blog, you will see that he has changed his mind from riding out Hurricane Rita at home to heading out for undisclosed higher ground. So Tanker, wherever you are, I hope you and the cats are safe.
El Capitan from Baboon Pirates has made it out of downtown Houston and his work site for the security of his abode to await the coming storm. He's preparing to ensure the security of his neighboorhood from some less friendly folks across the fence.
El Capitan's got cats to mind too. How about that? Anyway, these two guys are regulars on my blogroll and Hurrican Rita is about to make their lives difficult. Wish them well.
