I'm sitting in IAH on my way to Baton Rouge for Saturday's LSU game and, as usual, we're delayed by the weather. The drive to Baton Rouge is 4 hours. The delay will end up about 5 or 6.
When wife kitteh and I went to Mobile a few years back, we got stuck overnight in Houston after arriving around 1 pm.
Never again. Fly to Houston and drive from there.
