So I get a call from a friend who asks if I’m evacuating, and of course, I say I’m not. Not because it isn’t a good idea to get out of the way of a storm that will have 100+ mph winds when it hits DALLAS, but because there is no place to go that is going to be safer without leaving the state, really. And I didn’t leave in time for that. Right now, it’s taking about 8 hours to travel 15 miles on parts of the freeways that lead away from the coast.
So then he asks, “How are you preparing?”
“I’m getting a lawn chair and a kite and I’m going to try for a free trip to Bermuda. HOW. DO. YOU. THINK!?!”
But I’m perfectly calm.
