Father-in-Law, a Texas highway patrolman here in our Small Town, is leaving today for Beaumont (about an 8-9 hour drive from here). Apparently, they’ve had a lot of looting and shooting (!!!) there, in the hurricane aftermath; and they’ve called in troopers from all over the state to help out.
Please send prayers, warm thoughts, and good vibes that way. We’re not sure when FIL will be back (he’ll probably be there at least a week), but we’re praying for his safety and a quick return home.
