I checked in with Simon & Frances today at around noon EDT to see if they had to evacuate Houston. They were indeed on their way to Dallas to stay with some friends. They had left at 5:15 CDT and had only made it about 8 miles. It was 11 EDT.

At about 6:15, I called back. First try, all circuits busy. Second try, horrible connection, but I got Frances. They were still only about 25 miles from Houston. Yikes.

Here’s hoping traffic gets a little better.
