Checking in...

Shing and DeAnne have checked in, they're crammed in with relatives in San Antonio... Al, Jesse, Michelle, John, Hector, and a few others are all out or making it out... Jamie's hunkered down...

Pictars!

Yes, finally. I decided that the minor inconvenience of going to bed at 2am (again. sigh!) was worth finally getting these pictures up.

Eating and fun: Korean BBQ dinner at Mu Dung San, Din Tai Fung for lunch...

Hiking Strawberry Peak: aka, an exercise in dehydration, or "hiking 11 miles instead of 6 miles as we planned..."

Kim moving away: to remind Kim that we're all going to miss her after she's gone!

Busy weekend

Heck, busy last 10 days or so.

Ginny speaks very emotionally, yet concisely about Hurricane Katrina. Others have said much. I will refrain from commenting too much-- such a disaster is clearly beyond the ability of state and local governments to deal with, but it seems like there's too much fingerpointing, not enough people taking responsibility, and not enough people executing what existing disaster plans were in place.

=(

In other parts of the USA, life goes on. e.g. Labor Day weekend Ars meet.
