A couple hours after Saturday's post about the wind, rain, and ceiling leak, things started to improve weather wise. Around 5pm, it stopped raining, but the wind was still pretty strong. Wind then died down later in the evening. Woke up Sunday to a sunny, dry day with no wind whatsoever. We still didn't get enough rain for this near-drought area though, because, one day after the weather, the grass was back to being crunchy while walking on it, and no standing water in the ditches or the holes in the driveway. Apparently the worst of Rita skipped us, as did the worst of Katrina (we got practically NO wind OR rain from the latter). Appears the worst of Rita jumped over northeast Louisiana and hit desireemichelle next door in Mississippi instead.
