    My friend in Dallas informs me that gas stations are empty and traffic has been crappy with all the people coming in. Things not looking so good.

    I was planning to drive to Dallas on Friday night (Staying with a friend) or maybe Saturday morning and make it a one day trip. But I do not want to be caught in a tropical storm on I-35 so I'm going to take the wait and see approach.

    I haven't heard anything about all gas stations being sold out. I'm sure plenty ran out along 45 for those coming up from Houston but Dallas should be ok as its Suburbs that are directly on the way from east Texas are and plenty of people have been leaving that area as well. Anyway, hurricane updates:

    Well, Rita is finally fixing to hit.

    September 24, 12:53 AM EDT
    Storm: Rita
    Location: About 40 Miles South-Southeast of Sabine Pass Along The Gulf Coast At The Texas/Louisiana Border.
    Max Winds: 120 mph
    Category: 3

    Apparently they want thir statements to make an impact this time as they were somewhat disreguarded with Katrina:

    That is a ton of people that have evacuated. BTW all the shelters that can house evacuees in Dallas are full so they're having to move on.

    And finally:
