Rita Evacuation Pt. 2

Well, Steve called me at 8:00 this morning. He left at 11:00 last night and has been on the road since then. He’s travelled a whopping 45 miles since then and is now just around The Woodlands on the north side of Houston. Traffic’s a mess, the southbound lanes of 45 haven’t been opened to northbound traffic yet, though he did say that that was supposed to happen at 9:00 Central time today.

The track keeps moving a little more to the east on each update so now it looks like Galveston’s going to miss the worst of it and we’re not going to get the rains that we need.
