Buttoned Up For Now
Steve Bates has shut down and buttoned up to await the storm. His regular site and e-mail have been down so he has been using The YDD Annex
. It is possible that he will be off-line for a while due to power and connectivity issues.
It looks like Beaumont is the new landfall target, and like the New Orleans Times-Picayune
, The Beaumont Enterprise
is going to be publishing on the Internet until regular printing can resume after the storm.
As Rita has moderated, we can hope that we are not looking at a large death toll again.
