      Shipwreck,
      That puts you about 3 1/2 hrs. from me. I used to make the trip regularly when my oldest daughter was attending A & M. The only part of the drive I disliked was going through the bottom part of Austin on 290 while they were rebuilding the interchange at I-35 and then hitting the airport traffich. Unbelievable at the wrong part of the day.

      Yes, I 35 is pretty bad. I had to go to Austin for a training a few months ago - rush hour traffic is terrible.

      What city do U live in?

      City? Right now I live between Kerrville (town) and Fredricksburg (town). As far as I'm concerned, it still to close to populated areas. It's a great area but further out would be nice. Maybe when I retire. Maybe I have this suppressed desire to be a hermit! I can't believe there are no emoticons with a cowboy hat!!! What's the deal? Did I miss something?

      You lived in Houma?
      My youngest son was born the night Andrew hit us a night to remember.
      I watched the windows blow out of the hospital.....celling tiles then being sucked out....the wife didnt have a bed to rest in..... 4th floor of SLMC started flooding from part of the roof that was missing.
      Last year Katrian hit where i live now 135 MPH winds for 9 hours out of power 18 days...had to carry a gun to stop looters

      I remember Andrew. It was scarey to be at home with that wind whistling. Why do storms like that always hit at night. I didn't wanna sleep in case we heard a tornado coming.

      I lived in the ONLY neighborhood in town that didn't loose power (Summerfield). The power used to go out ALL the time when I grew up. But a hurricane hits, and it only flickered a couple of times. We had to go out in the store to push up a screen porch wall - the wind almost pushed it over. Was not fun

      My fiend lived in Lafayette Woods, and they didn't get power for over a week. When the mall got power, it was very popular simply because of the a/c

      Well unfortunately, they came back home.
