Group Live-Blogging Rita;
also, Houston Plywood Price Too Low

The Houston Chronicle is hosting a group of citizens who are live-blogging their experiences as they prepare for hurricane Rita. The blog is called "Stormwatchers." One of the group is Tom Kirkendall of the blog, Houston's Clear Thinkers. Their entries are fascinating.

My son and his wife tell me there is no plywood to be found in Houston. I guess the building supply stores didn't set the price high enough initially.

If you lived in the area, would you have loaded up a truck with plywood on Wednesday afternoon in Dallas or Amarillo or El Paso and driven it to Houston? Is there a price at which you would consider doing so? Even if you wouldn't have done so, do you think others might have?
