Don't Pat Yourself on the Fuckin Back Quite Yet Houston



The birds are gone, the squirrels have burrowed or scattered, or whatever it is they do when a natural disaster looms, and all that's left is the people in their big iron tanks. And the City of Houston, it seems, is already patting itself on the back for a job well done, having gotten everyone stirred up into a shitstorm waaaay in advance of the impending Shitstorm Rita, which I suppose is good. But they're being a little premature.

Thing is, the shitheads didn't prepare very well. My family and I just spent 5 hours (2:45 a.m. - 7:45 a.m.) driving just over ten miles on Highway 290 towards Austin. 5 hours for 10 miles y'all, while the fucking east bound lanes were wide open and clear as can be. People are breaking down on the side of the road, over heating, running out of gas -- as are the stations on pretty much every highway -- and no one in the city can think to open the east bound lanes to west bound traffic? I'm serious yo, if I wasn't in such a daze I would have taken some photos myself. It is straight up insanity out there. Serious, I saw 290, Beltway 8 and I-10 more packed than anything I've ever seen in my life.

Parking lots.

So, once we reached Beltway 8, we turned around and came home. Might ride this little bitch out. Might try again if they open up the inbound lanes. Might try to get a flight. I don't know but this shit is fucking fucked.

We'll survive though. These fools are making way more out of it than it really is, and like I said, are already patting themselves on the back while they fuck the fuck up incessantly. I'm pissed. No sleep till Austin.

And to top it off I couldn't stick around the station to watch the blue line crawl as I uploaded Damage Control, so it obviously didn't. Fuck fuck fuck....

No sleep till Austin.

Just when I thought Houston (or most Texas cities in general) have the best highway systems in the country.

it also has a video about a cat 5 hurricane.. according to the video, the evacuation routes can only handle 18,000 cars/hr
its obviously taking in more cars than that... thus traffic

Just talked to Matt, he says so far so good there. Just read the Mayor of Houston opened all 8 lanes of traffic (inbound and outbound) to all outbound traffic. Hopefully that will clear some of the congestion up and Matt and his family can get out. THey also said that the hurrican has been slowing down speed so it may not be "as" bad.

They opened a small portion of I 45 north of the city going both ways.

And hey "thus traffic." No shit, traffic, delays, whatever we can handle it, but these fools need to open the lanes up on I10 59 and 290. They are not moving at all. I stared at the Beltway 8 signs for 2 hours before turning around. We had already been in the car for three, this was in the middle of the night 2 days before the shit hit. Thus traffic, no shit, it's fucked. Thus 4-5 more lanes to use depending on how they work it. They can shut that shit down. Barely anyone is even trying to get in here. Shut the shit down and lets move it on out.

And my reaction is more to the point that people here are all talking about how prepared we are and blah blah blah... I agree you can't just prepare for somethig like this to where everything is 100% smooth, but they can open the lanes and get shit flowing from here to Brenham, I guarantee...

They opened I45 from Conroe to Buffalo where it's only 2 lanes on each side anyway...

That sucks man. I say you hop on the inbound lanes going outbound. I seriously doubt any police will pull you over.

I'll have a Hurricane and a Rita in a big glass, fool.

Do the math. No gas on the route to Austin, Dallas, or SA. Travelling at 2 - 5 MPH. A whole bunch of folks will not make it very far.

I hope these storm windows hold tight.

From what Matt said, it's impossible to get to the airport now anyways even if there were flights.

I'm sure people are smartening up and before they leave Houston filling up those red gas buckets with Gas so if they do run out then they have backup.

Prayers go out to everybody down there right now... hope you and you fam Matt get out safe and sound.

Nice Blog!!!   I thought I'd tell you about a site that will let give you places where
you can make extra cash! I made over $800 last month. Not bad for not doing much. Just put in your
zip code and up will pop up a list of places that are available. I live in a small area and found quite
a few. MAKE MONEY NOW

You guys are complete fucking morons, especially "schoolyard". Tell me schoolyard, what city in the world could evacuate 2 million people without having major traffic problems? Maybe all of you "gangsters" should stop being such a burden on society and MAYBE contribute a little. You all sound like a bunch of fucking women bitching about things and not doing shit to help. And no, hosting a lean party is not contributing to society.
