Mayor Bill White has just asked that all companies in the Houston area not require employees to stay and work on Thursday or Friday (except essential personnel).
It’s weird because I am not seeing any middle-of-the-roaders today. People are either completely serious about evacuating or completely laughing at those taking it so serious. Some have said there’s no way the storm will reach certain areas north of Houston… and I’m reminded that Katrina was still a Hurricane over 100 miles inland.
Frankly, I’m leaving town because I sweat… alot. And the chances are pretty high that we’ll lose power (because we lose power when someone burps too loud - thanks Reliant Energy) and that means no A/C.
And I can afford a nice hotel room because… well, I’m a Republican.
