Just curious if anybody else is from some of those southern states. I just watched this episode of Boondocks that was talking about Katrina. It made me remember when they evacuated a lot of people from Houston and the surrounding areas. It was an exhausting drive in that sea of people, and I was so damn tired, but what I remember most about it is how I suddenly felt so connected to people around me. It didn't matter what job you worked at, what your house looked like, what social circle you belonged to. It was crisis mode and everybody was herded onto I-45. Gas stations closed because they just ran out of fuel or the owners were high tailing it like everybody else. I ended up helping this one guy from Louisiana push this van in front of us to a gas station and had to talk to a rescue crew to get gas for my small car. This hotel that I stopped at gave everybody free food and water and let people sleep in their cars in the parking lot when they were full. Horrible as all that seems, I felt alive through it all. I think because I was around so many people all in the same situation. Didn't matter if I knew them personally or not. No, I don't wish for another hurricane, hell no. But I just miss that feeling of in a crowd that way.
