Rita Update- Saturday 9:45 a.m.


The wind blew very, very hard all night. We lost our biggest and most productive banana tree and a few smaller tree limbs, but otherwise everything is in tact. The hurricane has moved up to east Texas. We are still getting a lot of wind, but nothing like we had overnight. We had very little rain. Other than a few spikes, we never lost electricity.

Gas is going to be a problem for a while, so it will take some time for things to get back to normal. It will also take time for the million or so people who evacuated to get back home.

We’ll have some limbs to clean up, but as I have said so many times, we were very lucky.
