This Hurricane is causing chaos
    #4694381 - 09/22/05 10:52 AM (11 years, 2 months ago)

Okay so I live in College Station. About 1 hour north of houston. Some ppl are comming to stay with us. One student from rice university called my dad (my dad is a prof so he knows students from wherever) he was askin to come here, my dad was like sure. then the student called and changed his mind saying he is going to dallas where it will be even safer since college station is pretty close to houston. and in dallas he is ognna stay with his buddies at the dorm. he was planning on going to dallas with his buddy from houston in his car. NOTE: Houston to Dallas is 4hrs away, but is taking over 30+ hours to get there bc of traffic! So today his buddy who was going to take him to dallas decided to fly instead. and this rice dude cant bc of $ so he calls us back wanting to come here again but this time telling me that shuttles are closing so he cant take that. and taxis are charging ridiculous amout of $. and hopefully he can find a way to get here later on when supposedly they will make the highways ONE WAY ONLY! thats crazy. come to think about it maybe he can catch a ride with other ppl who are commin to stay with us from houston. let's see what happens, anyways i need to go and fill up my gas tank, just to be safe.

Thats insanity, but IMO its better to just get out anyway you can....I don't think I'd want to just "ride out" the worst category 5 ever.

I live in Alabama, but I filled up my gas tanks yesterday. I think the storm will take out some more rigs and, in turn, drive the gas prices up, again. It is down to 2.71/gallon here. Lowest it's been in awhile. :thumbdown:

Traffic is even worse now! i live in Katy, and the only overpass bewteen Katy and Houston is Pin Oak (1493). i want to show you these photos i took on the overpass once i get them developed. all lanes of traffic are going west, even the east lanes. Some lost man was coming the wrong way, coming head on at me cause of the confusion. everyone in Texas can agree that everything going on here is just insane!

The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing. One cannot help but be in awe when he contemplates the mysteries of eternity, of life, of the marvelous structure of reality. It is enough if one tries merely to comprehend a little of this mystery every day. Never lose a holy curiosity. ~ Albert Einstein

yes, the main oil rigs in the gulf are off the coasts of Louisiana and Texas (Galveston). Katrina got the ones in front of Louisiana and Rita will get the rest off of Texas's Coast.

Another 15-20 years of this insane hurricane activity heading your way. If this doesn't drive us to get the fuck off petroleum, I don't know what will.

Hope you're safe down there. Stay on your toes.

Ok, that's obviously a given. I'm talking about some event seriously steering us away from petroleum use in the very near future.
