Storm Coming, People Leaving

I've never seen anything like it. I-10 westbound was choked up as early as 8am yesterday morning that I know of. People were sitting in traffic for hours and only moving a few miles.

From the second-story window of my apartment, I have a clear view of the Interstate and all last night it was crawing bumper-to-bumper. So imagine my surprise to wake up this morning and still see bumper-to-bumper traffic inching along! All of New Orleans and the surrounding areas are under a mandatory evacuation and everyone is trying to get out. They said it would take a full 72 hours to completely evacuate New Orleans alone - I don't see the Interstate clearing up anytime soon.

I think I would die if I was caught in that kind of traffic for that many hours in a standard. All night long we could hear the 18-wheelers downshifting as they inched their way slowly forward with the rest of the vehicles.

Work's still on and it seems we won't be seeing rain until about 3pm today - still winds will be around 10-20 mph and that will be nice. I don't know what exactly we're going to do at work as half of the office won't be there and most of the public is preparing for the storm and not likely to be contacting us for anything. At least it will be a quiet day. I've got to cancel an appointment with my orthopedic doc since our other i.t. person lives in the evacuated areas and won't be coming in - can't leave the office i.t.-less, it tends to freak them out.

So far, it's absolutely quiet here. Other than the insane traffic there's little to no indication that a storm is headed this way. We'll see.
