Houston Rita UpdateWe went out to dinner near here. The highways going through town are still packed. It seems that the traffic website is not working. It may be overloaded.
We tried the Galleria fir dinner. ahe stores were closed. We were going to Fox Sports Restaurant. It had people in it, but it was closed.
Some directions the streets were full - people trying to get to evacuation routes. Other directions there was light local traffic. Many gas stations had long lines.
It was inexplicably common to see a gas station with a line then another one two blocks later with only a few cars.
Some neighbohoods are more likely to flood than others. We are hoping that we are in a safe one. The news sure does make this sound like a scary storm.
