Where Rita Hits the Road

Get this: A friend in Houston reports that some people stuck in the hundred mile long traffic jams trying to get north and west of Houston, for fear of running out of gas as others have done, just got out of their cars and PUSHED them along in the stop and go traffic. Obviously, the traffic was not moving much faster than a couple of strong-armed guys could trot anyway, and why not? Great!

Yes, nature rules. Nature rules!

But the whole exodus spectacle now going on in Texas really just goes to show how cocky and/or apathetic people in Louisiana were about Katrina. Not all deaths resulting from Katrina are a sob story. Some gambled and lost. That is what grown ups are generally allowed to do. Over 17, you can get married and buy lottery tickets - and "ride out" a hurricane, category one, category four or five, whatever.

But seeing the reality of the aftermath on TV - that's what got all these millions of Texans (and assorted Katrina evacuees) running north and west as fast as they can... WALK.

Be prepared for the next florida hurricane or find another one that's similar. As the Boy Scouts say: "Be Prepared"!
