My first day at SXSW wasn’t

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.
