College Station is in the path of Hurricane Rita, and we're expected to get a pretty bad storm by Friday or Saturday. The University has already cancelled classes on Friday, and may close on Monday as well. I've never weathered a really really bad storm before so while I was originally thinking this wouldn't be that big of a deal, people's reactions are starting to worry me. I can't tell if its experience talking, or just Katrina-phobia. Mom and dad have already told me I can bring the boys home with me. I live on the second floor of the apartment complex, no trees near my windows to break them, but my car isn't in any type of protection. What do you guys think? Stay or leave? What can I expect from the storm, and what should I try and get? I've already got some bread and canned soup and such, but there's very little in the way of tuna or even flashlights left in this town!
