This time last year, I was in the middle of an 18 hour drive from Houston to Dallas (a drive that normally takes under 5 hours).
Here are the posts I made that day as I live-blogged our trek.
5. Quick Update
Some other things that happened as a result of this event…
This post was picked up by major news outlets around the world - which is interesting, as out of the thousands of posts I’ve made, it’s the one in which I really didn’t say anything.
I wouldn’t wish a day like that on anyone. It was sweltering - temperature above 100 - and emotions were running high. I’ve spoken to many who made similar trips and most have vowed to ride the next one out. Personally, I’d probably just leave sooner.
It’s interesting to go back and read historical accounts of events like this. It’s another thing to go back and read your own personal accounts of having lived through it.
