Our goal is to head back to Houston today, most likely leaving Dallas in the evening, a bit after the normal rush hour. Scanning the Road Home Blog, it seems like I-45 wasn't too awful yesterday, but we ought to be prepared to scoot over to US75 for part of the trip. I don't think gas will be a problem, but I expect we'll have the reserve can filled up just in case anyway.
This article about evacuation planning and the need for contraflow lanes is very well done and needs a response from state and local officials. I'm still willing to go easy on this, but we'd better make sure we learn well from this experience. Tom and Tory are giving the matter some thought, and I will return to it after I come back home.Posted by Charles Kuffner on September 26, 2005 to Hurricane Katrina | TrackBack
