Life with Rita – Part 5

Well, most of my friends were planning on leaving town this morning and more and more I am finding out they have abandoned their plans to vacate. Stories of 22 hour drives to East Texas and the like are discouraging to folks – especially when their is not enough gas around to keep a vehicle running for 22 hours. Looks like a lot more people will be riding it out than expected.

In further preparation news, I sure love rechargeable batteries. While the rest of the city is fighting their way to stores only to discover they are all out of batteries, water etc., I have charged batteries of every size and shape. It helps that we use a ton of battery operated equipment in our video production business and long-ago opted to save money and the environment by switching to rechargeables.

The batteries are all charged. The refrigerator has every available space filled with bottles of water – its tap water, but if a water main breaks, it will taste like liquid gold. Okay, liquid gold probably tastes gross, but you know what I mean. The neighbors are hard at work boarding up windows and battening down the hatches, but I think I am pretty well set.

The only thing that could possibly go wrong now is if the satellite went out before Battlestar Galactica airs tomorrow night. By the predictions, it looks like I could miss Friday’s episode. I want to put out a plea in advance for someone to please record it for me… hey, you have to have your priorities… right? :)

    Ok I had the same thought about Battlestar Galactica, and was feeling silly about it. I’m considering calling family in Arizona and asking them to tape it. Hang in there dude, and enjoy the batteries.
