Too Late To Run
Thanks to all for the advice, encouragement, and warnings. It's too late to leave, however, since the highways are parking lots and the drive from Houston to Huntsville, about 60 miles, is now taking 12 hours. If worse comes to worst, the community college here in town has a hurricane-proof room (it was once a vault, so it has very thick steel walls covered with brick). I've been in touch with the college president, who's as stupid as I am and is also still in town, and if the storm turns in this direction, we'll go to the college. I'm still confident that things will work out better than that, and that the storm will come in to the south of us, giving us rain and high wind, but nothing of hurricane force.
