Rita's Damage

My sister Becky sent a follow-up e-mail today:

With all the news lately about Hurricane Katrina, we shouldn't forget that Houston, Texas, has had its share of devastating weather also.

This photo illustrates the damage caused to a home when Hurricane Rita passed through the Houston area a few days ago. It really makes you cherish what you have and reminds you not to take life for granted!

Warning: The photo is quite graphic and may not be suitable for younger viewers.

Based on the picture,I assume your comment about the "photo" was a joke...

I'm so glad I summoned the nerve to view this dramatic aftereffect of the storm.

Thanks, KOK! This was just the smile I needed this afternoon.

Yes, Anon, you win the grand prize. It is a joke, one that seemed appropriate after the dramatic exodus from hell that turned out to be unneeded.

But the exodus was one helluva dry run for the next big storm! In spite of the many problems, I bet many in Houston are glad to know what to expect and how to plan better!

Katharine said...

Yes, Anon, you're right. But can't you at least spare a tiny giggle? Laughter's good medicine.

Terrifying. How do people go on after that?

I'm going to go straight home and hug my kids.

How do they go on, KZ? They ask for a little chair-ity.
