had a good night’s sleep last night. i am about to check out of the hotel and head home. tv appears to have gone back to normal programming. i think for the most part they finally gave up on getting much excitement out of rita. i’m sure as they find areas where there was exceptional wind or water damage they’ll play it up. as of last night, there was one known death from the weather itself, and that was a tornado in mississippi if i recall. i’m not going to say nothing at all happened, because it did, but considering the froth on the mouths of the reporters – especially here in houston – the fable of the boy crying wolf comes to mind. (i hear raj already made a similar comment on his blog…i haven’t checked other sites yet.) i’m so glad i don’t normally watch tv…i’m not sure i could mentally take it.
