Motorists wait in line for fuel at one of the few open gas stations in Pasadena, Texas, Thursday, Sept. 22, 2005. Residents were evacuating the area west of Houston due to a mandatory evacuation prior to Hurricane Rite arriving.

Screw that, keep them on the main roads. We don't need anymore idiots coming through our little towns.

I was talking to a friend of mine in Texas last night and they pulled over to a gas station between Austin and Houston and the gas station was closed but people had turned the area around the station into an open latrine!!!

Those Texans disgust me...
Link Posted: 9/22/2005 11:41:06 AM EDT
we are running out of gas trying to get out, people jumped the gun and split early, my evac time is 6pm, of course I'm going the back roads that I have preplaned. But all the gas stations are either closed or are out of gas for a 100 miles up, very very few stations are still open around here, I've already gone thru a tank of gas trying to help my friends and family

Gas lines have been backed up for days in many areas.
Link Posted: 9/22/2005 11:43:42 AM EDT
The gas stations are a mile apart and it is a 12 hour drive from station to station. Even at idle you burn alot of gas.

These people should've been watching Rita when it passed Florida, and start gassing up their vehicles when it became clear that somewhere along the Texas coast Rita was going to hit.

I was just heard that the southbound interstate lanes are going to be reversed and used for north
bound traffic at 4 P.M. today.
Link Posted: 9/22/2005 11:48:35 AM EDT
i thought the same when i heard on the news last night that people were going to the store to "stock up" and the stores were packed and nothing was left.

im glad i found this website, especially the survival forum. if a snowstorm or anything is coming my way, you wont catch me at the store trying to stock up 2 days before hand.

i got stuff for a week for now...increasing every day

I can guar-an-tee when the PRK gets hit with any disaster (quake, flood, wild fire, terror attack, exc.) those gas lines in TX will look like an orderly tea party. The vast majority of CA is sleeping sheep!

Understand that my disappointment is born out of the fact that I hold Texans to a higher standard; I expect this kind of thing from folks in other regions. I like to think of Texas as a sheeple-free zone.

A friend of mine left Houston this morning at 4:00 AM with a full tank of gas.

He called at noon and said that he had only made it 48 miles out of town.

So unless you want to haul a couple of hundred gallons with you, running out of gas is not easily avoided.

Many people are running out of gas just sitting in traffic. I bet many cars would easily run out if driving stop and go and sitting in traffic for 6-8 hours

Amen.

Some of you other people have no idea.

God forbid you haver have something like this happen in your town.

We have ARFCOMers out there too you know.

Most of these people thought they were prepared. This is a perfect example of why peolple need a plan to stay as well as a plan to bug out.

It is pretty easy to throw stones from 1000 miles away. Instead, you should pray and wish them luck.



Damn straight

No, Texas was started by folks such as German, Scottish, Spanish and Swedish Immigrants. That's why you get such town names such as Fredericksburg, New Braunfels, Kerrville, Sequin, and Boerne. Yankees didn't even exist.

Texas, like any other state, has their fair share of natrually occuring idiots.



True, but since in central Texas your average resident has only been here seven years, (only one in NINETEEN was actually born here.) That leaves a whole lot of the imported kind.

I dream of the day the tech industry craters and all the guys with funny accents and Michigan state bumper stickers go pollute someone else's state.

Do us a favor and take all the Starbuck's with you.

Damn you Texans are ignorant of your own history.

Texas was settled 'by the anglos' starting with a man named Moses Austin. He had the first approval for bringing in 'Americans' to settle in Texas.

Moses was born in Durham CT (his house is still there on the Main street, a certifiable Yankee, he ran one of his business from Middletown CT (right next door).

You people named a city after his son (Austin Tx).

Perhaps we should all move to Ohio, where the beer flows like wine, the streams are made of chocolate, and people are obviously more prepared and better adapted to handle evacuating several million people in the sights of the largest hurricane the Gulf of Mexico has ever seen. Please advise us what to do next, o superior ones.

Yeah, that attitude seems to be getting rather thick around here because of this storm. I realize that Texans want to put on a macho face and a "we can'do" attitude, but be realistic; no one state is really truly "better" than any other in this nation. We all have the good and the bad, and the grass is not always greener some other place.

No HE STARTED the settlement of Texas by the anglos (before then only the Mexians & indians could live there legally). It was his plan that got the ball rolling that ended up being the great state of Texas.

Just as the people of Jamestown got the ball rolling in America, Moses Austing got the ball rolling in Texas.
