My daughter (22 years old) is currently hauling butt toward Houston - she slept in her car in Lafayette last night, because there were no hotel rooms to be had. And it took her about 6 hours to cover the 130 miles from N.O. to there. One of her roommates had gone to the beach in Mississippi yesterday morning, with plans to come back to town to evacuate. But since nobody was allowed to enter New Orleans, she and her bf got to evacuate in swim suits with what towels, etc., they had packed for a day at the beach. Great fun.
