Man, dog and turtle made it home safely about five this morning. It was good to wake up with Bob in my bed. Everything in Austin is askew as people worry whether we will get storm damage on Saturday. People are buying up all the water and bread in stores (but not crackers) tuna (but not beef jerky). HEB is restocking water every hour and still selling out . Bob didn't have bad traffic from Corpus but todays evacuees from Houston are barely moving (one family reports seventeen miles in three hours!). They are running out of gas, which the national Guard is supplying when cars stop. Kent went and bought a generator and is stocking up water. Bob and I really don'e expect trouble here in Austin - but who knows?
