Ike Evacuees

My parents let Houston Thursday afternoon and thankfully beat the rush of people trying to flee Hurricane Ike on Friday. It looks like they will be staying with us for at least another day or two as it is unclear when downtown Houston will be open to residents returning. By all reports, the water is receding so that the roads and interstates leading into the city are clear, but there it no drinking water, limited power, limited fuel and limited food in the city. I'm not sure how long it will be before city officials give the okay to return to downtown, but I surely don't want my parents to go back to a home without air conditioning, water or food.
