Traffic situation improving in Houston
A heartening report about the traffic flow out of Houston from Richard, a citizen journalist blogging at Stormwatchers. He writes:

For those who are inclined to rail against "the government," especially about the failure to provide gasoline for the long lines of evacuees on the highways yesterday, I offer a counterpoint: Houston and Harris County have done as excellent a job as they can.

We learned from Katrina - and now we have more lessons to absorb.
