Rita has ruled out my conference trip to Dallas.
Major innerstates are parking lots, and there's no way we'll get to the hotel in time to check in, and I'm not sure we'd be able to get back on Monday in time. It would've been exhausting and infuriating to get there and back, so I'm cutting my losses and staying here.
I'm sooooo depressed. I'd really hoped they'd reschedule it, but I guess they can't. Austin's flooded with evacuees and there are gas lines and empty shelves in the stores. I don't think Austin will even get hit, but I've evacuated one city and I don't plan to get dragged into another impossible traffic fiasco again.
So... if I never have success I can always blame Rita cause she kept me from my meeting with Henry Holt... sigh...
