I planned on being at SXSW this evening, up in Austin. But I’ve watched the weather all day trying to make up my mind about the one hour drive.
Finally I saw the radar, and saw the storm approaching. Headed from here right up to Austin. I decided to stay home.
At least two people were killed here in flooding last night. I won’t be one of the victims tonight.
And to all of you SXSW visitors who may not be familiar with just how quickly rain can flood our roadways – be careful. Don’t cross over ANY moving water. I’ve been caught in a raging flood before and I was lucky.
I won’t risk it again. Don’t you risk it either.
