Katrina v. Rita

Check out the coverage at the Houston Chronicle, particularly the "recommended routes" and other evacuation coverage. The entire Texas Gulf Coast seems prepared to go. Did NO have similar plans and coverage? Of course I realize that Texas has the benefit of having recently witnessed Katrina, but they couldn't have thrown all this together in three short weeks while simultaneously helping out those from LA.

Being a Texan I also know that many more will evacuate today than would have pre-Katrina...hindsight being 20/20 and all.

Hurricane tracking is notoriously difficult and Rita might not even come close...still I'm impressed. My prayers are with those along the coast.
