  •  If you know anyone on Texas Coast (4.00)
    I am in Kerrville Texas today at the Chamber of Commerce.  Kerrville is in Central Texas about 60 miles NW of San Antonio. The phones are ringing off the hook and the latest info we have is that all hotels from N of Corpus thru San Antonio, thru Kerrvile and all the way to Amarillo are booked solid.  

    Lubbock still has a few rooms, but filling fast.

    Everyone here in the Hill Country is asking where are the shelters?  I don't know.  Kelly USA in San Antonio only has about 1100 Katrina victims left, but no news as to whether they will open it up for Rita.

    My mom is in Corpus and will be hitting the road for my home in San Antonio tomorrow morning.  No evac orders from the authorities in Corpus, yet, but expected by this evening.

    Thank you Steve and weatherunderground!!!  I am getting great info and analysis from y'all quicker than anywhere else.

    thanks!

    There's nothing in the middle of the road but a yellow stripe and dead armadillos. -- Jim Hightower
