So I’ve played another support role in the evacuation of another hurricane.  This time, Ike was the culprit.  I’ve been doing a lot of driving the last couple of days going between shelters for the purpose of tracking the evacuees with the RFID wristbands.  One of those places was in New Braunfels, a town about 20 miles north of San Antonio.  It was there where a one good story came out from all the negative ones.

I spent time in that shelter.  And I remember when I got there I was somewhat shocked (and confused) about all the Asian people there.  As it turns out, this shelter was housing people that evacuated from Port Lavaca, which has a big Asian presence.  And therefore we didn’t evacuate Taiwan by mistake, which is what I initially thought. :)

Anyway, I thought that would be a cool story to share.  And I’m hoping the aftermath of Ike to the Texas coast is one that doesn’t prove to be as bad as the government expected.  After seeing how it is for people to stay in the shelters, you can’t help but feel for them.  A FEMA cot is no substitute for your own bed.  The things we take for granted…

Here are some various pics from the Hurricane Ike event.  And also a video of Horbi inhaling some bus exhaust.


Horbi taking bus fumes to the face easily makes this video my favorite part of this post. :)

Today's Deep Thought

  • I think a good novel would be where a bunch of men on a ship are looking for a whale. They look and look, but you know what? They never find him. And you know why they never find him? It doesn't say. The book leaves it up to you, the reader, to decide. Then, at the very end, there's a page that you can lick and it tastes like Kool-Aid.
