    We live south of Houston & the wife & kids have made it out safely but with the miles of traffic (Some places are taking 10-11 hours to move 10 miles), change of direction & weakening of Rita, the lyrics from an old Clash song are bouncing through my head…”Should I stay or should I go?”

  • John says:

    I think a lot of people are in that position of staying or going. My parents and extended family arrived at my home today (Thursday)and the roads through my town headed from Houston to Dallas/Ft. Worth are packed. We live 1.5 hours NW of Houston and there is no bottled water, grocery shortages, and no expected deliveries until Sunday at the earliest. Seems like everyone is housing someone from Houston around here.
