My stepsister and her family live between Houma, LA and the coast. In case you haven't heard, that's directly in the expected path of the eye. They evacuated Saturday evening with everything they could pack in their cars including the two belonging to the teenagers. They lost almost everything in Rita. They fully expect to come back to nothing. These people I know and care about. Thousands more are fleeing with the same expectations. St. Casserole is waiting it out at her home further to the east. Keep praying for them all!

Lord be with them. Amen.

Un-update: No news as yet how their home faired. We know they arrived safely at their evacuation destination, but no news on damage. Thanks for praying

Lord, be with them.
I'm so sorry about your Houma family. This is a terrible time for them. Terrible.
We are praying for all in the path of the storm. We are a good distance from Houma to the East.

So glad they're out, but can't begin to imagine what they're experiencing in the waiting. Still praying for them.
