Re: Island Jim!

True. Thankfully they recently opened some of the new lanes on  I-10 making 
at least 5-6 lanes on both sides instead of the 3-4 lanes we used to  have.  
That has helped regular traffic a lot, and definitely helped with  this 
situation as well.  
One thing I've learned about hurricanes and tropical storms, they almost  
always seem to have a mind of their own, despite all the modern technology,  etc. 
 Most recently with Fay.......definitely wasn't projected to do what  it did. 
 Rita too, came as a complete surprise to east Houston and parts  east of 
there, which wasn't even in the projected cone.  They were no where  near 
prepared, in fact many people from west of Houston evacuated to  Beaumont, Port 
Arthur, etc.   I guess that's why they've put mandatory  evacuations in effect for 
the entire upper Gulf Coast, better safe than  sorry.  Glad that they 
evacuated New Orleans completely......being under  sea level, no matter where the 
storm hits, they will have problems.  The  levees are no where near being 
completed, and those that are will be seriously  put to a test they say.

Yeah it  would, Houston traffic is a nightmare on a good day.  All 3
projected  tracks I saw this evening pretty much bypass Houston for all
intents &  purposes.  That's the good news.  But LA and far East TX may be  in
for some trouble.
