I live here. In the areas most affected (that means underwater,) there haven’t been ways to immediately get to a shelter. They have had to wait for rescue, or brave the floodwaters to get to relative safety. Some of these folks have been flooded out of their homes before they could grab provisions. Some were able to Read more

I’m always genuinely impressed when I discover a mainstream car model that’s so under the radar that I didn’t know about its existence. I’ll lump this in with the Hyundai Azera and Kia Borrego (which I also only just learned about this year).

Apparently, it’s no problem. Just the media trying to make up fake news about an alleged hurricane that isn’t really causing any damage to anybody anywhere. Dumb press. Houston is fine! Drainage is handling all the wetness. All is well! (note: 12 people starred the comment below)

We had mass evacuations ordered during Hurricane Rita in 2005 and it was a shit show. Even with the contraflow lanes that were put in place post-Rita, any mass evacuation from Houston would have been a similar mess. Read more

Bayou behind my house was over the banks, and that’s before the rain started kicking in this morning. Neighborhood water is starting to rise. Read more

I think it looks cool too. At least different from most of the others. Then again, I like the Juke.
