‘The devil don’t never stop working’

Here’s an interesting article on the state of things gasoline-related in Northern Houston / The Woodlands.

“Between 2.5 million and 2.7 million Texans heeded warnings to leave coastal areas, marking what Texas Governor Rick Perry called the biggest evacuation in U.S. history. State officials are rushing to take fuel to hundreds of stranded families as Rita nears the Texas coast.”

Both the governor and Mayor White have pledged to not allow any evacuees to take shelter on the side of the road – the Transportation Department and various law enforcement agencies have assisted 5000 motorists so far. Gas and food is gradually being passed out to stranded cars and evacuation routes seem to be slowly but surely clearing up.

It will be a long long time before I complain about Houston traffic again!

>>> As a side note, someone told me that Katy has already lost power. Anyone know if this is true??
