Some people who came after Katrina destroyed much of New Orleans still live here. We know many of them on the freeways---from the New Orleans Saints bumper stickers.
The storm's landfall is in Rockport or thereabouts. Rockport is a fun little beach town--less a resort than a fishing town. There is an old highway bridge where one can walk, buy shrimp and fish for redfish. Down the road is the Aransas National Wildlife Refuge. We walked there on New Year's Eve in 2006. A huge alligator was on the trail. I remember catching an ocean catfish fishing from the shore in a little town that was called Austwell. We walked Beatrice tonight under cooler but calm skies, thinking about the coming storm down south.
Tonight I hope that the damage is less than expected.
At lunch I saw a Ruby-Throated Hummingbird in a nearby bush. At dinner, we met at Good Union BBQ. It's a different little BBQ place,but one I like a lot.
Breakfast: cereal and skim milk
lunch: 2 slices of buffet pizza, pickles, carrots and broccoli\
dinner: BBQ turkey sandwich and shoestring potatoes.
