Looks like Rita has fizzled a bit. I think Dad's going to have to deal with 5" of rain and about 11 hours of wind over 50 mph. Assuming there aren't any tornados, he should be okay. Well, except for the electricity. If that goes out, he's going to be miserable because it will be in the high 80's at 100% humidity.
Again, I'm glad he's not in the Beaumont/Port Arthur area. Even with Rita as a Category 3, they're still looking at a lot of flooding over there. It will be interesting to see what gas prices are like on Monday.
