Holy Crap

This thing's gonna be huge:

Gaining strength with frightening speed, Hurricane Rita swirled toward the Gulf Coast a Category 5, 175-mph monster Wednesday as more than 1.3 million people in Texas and Louisiana were sent packing on orders from authorities who learned a bitter lesson from Katrina

You Houstonians know your city better than I do and I'm sure you've received nothing but notices and warnings and pleas for those areas that look to be vulnerable. If you need to get out, please do. If you're wary about any part of this monster, err on the side of caution and leave if you can. For those of y'all staying, please be safe. Stock up on everything you may need.

San Antonians, get ready to open your wallet and donate some more of your time very, very soon. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you in Houston right now.
