Harvey is now a hurricane, predicted to be Cat III when it hits the Gulf Coast of Texas around 1AM Saturday morning, the first hurricane to hit Texas since 2008.
So much for global warming models.
OTOH, someone in the impact zone could get in a car now, and be in Wyoming by the time Harvey makes landfall in about 36 hours. Assuming they had the foresight.
The bigger issue is Texas offshore production platforms and refineries.
The price of gasoline is going to skyrocket any minute, nationwide, just ahead of the Labor Day Weekend. (How convenient.)
Stock up, kids, as much as you can do so.
And you Texans, hunker down or GTFO, as appropriate, and take care of yourselves.
We want you around afterwards.
