Returning home

Posted by seanabrady on September 24, 2005

They have come up with a scheduled return for people coming home.  Tomorrow people north of I-10 and west of I-45 can come home.  Monday people south of I-10 and west of 35 can come home as well as people within the 610 loop.  It goes on from there.  I wonder how they will enforce it????

Hope the plan works, they need to get that word out and soon.

    I live in Pearland and evacuated to San Antonio. I have a 6 month old baby and I’m very worried about getting stuck in traffic like my husband did on Thursday (took him 15 hours instead of 3 1/2). Have you found a place on the web that lays out the schedule for return?

    I also have a 4 year old daughter Denali. Have they mentioned when the Pearland schools will open?

    Hi there, just found your journal off the frontpage of I’m from Pearland too, Silver Lake, back by the new movie theater. We headed up to New Bransfels for the weekend. I’m glad there wasn’t much damage to the area when we got back. We dodged a big bullet this weekend.

    Yea, If you drive further into town on Broadway you can see some other wind damage (carport cover of a gas station blown off for example), but really nothing to bad. Just need to get some groceries back in the stores now.
