Ok, so the weather-morons suck worse than normal, and while I’m glad I’m not getting hit by a hurricane, I would like to point out two things:
- Traffic to evacuate a major city is beyond stupid. I know of people that spent 18 hours to get to Austin from Houston, normally a 3 hour drive, and others who spent 24 hours to get to Midland, which is closer than Austin. Fucking stupid.
- People were evacuated to Beaumont and to parts of Louisiana. The Hurricane was apparently told to go there as well.
And here I am, at my home, safe as can be, getting ready for bed. Nothing has happened except a bit of wind a rain, and looking at the forecasts, unless something really dramatic happens, like Nuclear War, I’m going to get through this with nothing more than a moment of “meh” to remember it.
And really, I won’t remember that, as we do have booze. YAY!
