DAVID LEFTWICH RIDING OUT THE STORM
David Leftwich, and on-again off-again poet blogger I like, has decided to ride out the storm in Houston and is giving an account of the experience on his blog. It makes gripping, poignant reading. On the news, we get the impression that the town is deserted and everybody is on the highway, but as he reports, thousands have decided to hunker down as he has. Fortunately he has plenty of food & supplies, and lives in a neighbourhood on relatively high ground. Dave-- let's hope you've made the right decision, buddy. Send prayers, good intentions, thoughts his way. I'll stay frequently tuned until (I assume) the power goes off and hope it comes comes on soon -- with a report that he's safe and sound.
