Not really sure about that man. I got my wife and kids outta Dodge primarily because I could afford to pay for hotel rooms and restaurant meals for a week. We supposedly weren’t in the worst-affected areas, and as it turns out we could have rode it out with no problem. But, I figured why risk it? A lot of people don’t have that option.
But yeah, we moved to Houston 7 days before the storm made landfall. Welcome to Texas, indeed.
