Texans Fleeing Rita Stalled by Traffic
My Houston dwelling parents left their home at 1:30 in the morning to get to Austin to catch a plane. When I spoke to my Mom this morning at 10:00 Houston time, she said they were in Austin and checked into to their flight. But that they had just got there. She said the I10 was backed up for miles and people were just sitting in traffic. Dad got off the 10 and took surface roads. And Mom said even those was super slow.
