Welcome home. Now leave.

Good news, kinda, sorta. Beaumont, Texas, will be open to the public at 7 a.m. tomorrow. According to the The Beaumont Enterprise:

“Residents will be allowed to return to assess damage, collect personal items and then will be encouraged to leave.”

Well, I can take that. At least the authorities are not saying you must leave once you come back and do an assessment. It beats either having to sneak in and face getting turned away or just getting turned away outright.

I likely will not leave once I get there, probably on Saturday. I’ve got to try to work even though I know it’s going to be difficult.

Also, I don’t particularly relish seeing what the city is going to look like for the first time since Rita. But it’s home, ya know?
