7:00 p.m. Sunday

We were hit with our first rain shower as we crossed into the city limits of Houston. We passed nearly 20 charter buses going east on the interstate.

Traffic is no problem!

There are a few vehicles on the road, but not many. As I'm writing this we are downing what may very well be our last "hot meal" for a few days -- nuggets from McD's. We are also watching a long line of ambulances opposite of where we are headed.

Our next stop is Beaumont, Texas.

We are going to try and get something on-air for our 10pm newscast. Time is ticking. I'll update blog again in a couple hours.
