The Roomie took these pics and posted them on her blog.
We first went down to Walgreen’s for batteries, but they were closed. We walked past Starbuck’s on the way to Kroger and it was also closed. She posted signs in windows and empty shelves at the grocery store. You have to see it to believe it.
By the way, I am listed as the “Reluctant Roommate.” Walking around in 100 degree heat wasn’t my idea of a good time, but I did work off a lot of nervous energy.
In about 20 hours, we should see the first of Rita’s outer bands of rain, so first thing tomorrow morning, we will start moving things away from the windows and secure the satellite dish.
I will post updates as long as technology allows.
