  Dine for America
I saw this link on a friend's blog and it seems to be on October 5th, restaurants all across the country are giving up proceeds during the dinefest to the Hurricane Katrina /(Rita?) fund. Click on the link below for restaurants in Austin, TX or go directly to for details. It seems like a great way to raise money for a special cause. As for the hurricane posts, you can see that there was a anticlimax as Rita didn't even touch Austin and caused Louisiana some more damage. How much more can Louisiana take? It seems like the agony there is unbearable. Please have them in your thoughts and prayers.

  A sigh of relief as the storm shifts its path
The parking lots are full at my apartment complex as Rita evacuees come in and take shelter. I saw people carrying bags of personal belongings out of their cars. It makes me wonder what these people are thinking right now that they are hundreds of miles away from their home. There is good news however, for the residents of Texas in the Gulf. Rita has taken a shift of course and is heading in a slightly more northern path than predicted. It may make landfall near the border but it seems as though the path would begin to curve more eastward toward the state of Louisiana. Hurricane winds have died down to 140mph but there is an indication that the storm may grow back to a category 5 in any time. However, there is always hope in the face of a tragedy...

  Hurricane Rita is coming to Texas
In the coming days I will be chronicling my experience of Rita from the city of Austin. As it looms near I can only hope and pray that it will veer off its path and stay away from innocent lives. I know of friends who are affected by this and I ask that everyone keep those who are in Rita's path in your thoughts an prayers. School at the University of Texas at Austin or at any public school has not been cancelled for Friday. The famed Austin City Limits Festival is still on for the weekend. There is a sense of urgency however, as supplies and water are now showing up empty on shelves. I haven't started to prepare but I'm going shopping tomorrow with my roommates. I think we'll be safe in Austin but we still need to prepare for the worst. Hopefully things will start to look brighter soon.
