Live from Houston: Friday Morning

It’s Friday morning. The sky is blue with some high wispy clouds, and there is a slight breeze ruffling the leaves. It’s hard to imagine that a hurricane is approaching.

But it is. And it is still tracking to the east. However, a couple of models show it tracking back west or even making landfall to the east and looping back toward Houston. Despite all our science and technology nature is still uncertainty.

And so is life. And life can be sad and tragic. The news is reporting a truly tragic story. A bus carrying elderly evacuees from Houston caught fire on I-45 just south of Dallas, and they think about 20 people died. How horrible – and how horrible for those people hunkered down at home or stuck on the freeway wondering if it was their loved one on the bus.

The worlds revolve like ancient women
Gathering fuel in vacant lots.

Jesus (wrong god for me, oh well, just a figure of speech they're all the same anyway when you're hunkered in a fox hole) I hope you're making the right decision. I'll be chanting for you over the coming days my dear internet friend...

All the best in a bad situation...
