Yesterday we were headed down towards Dallas on HWY 75, which runs directly south from the Oklahoma border to Dallas -- where it turns into Interstate 45 and runs all the way south to Houston.
Houston Area In Path Of Hurricane Harvey Aug 2017
All the large vehicles (there must've been at least 25 of them) had a driver behind the wheel and appeared to be ready to go!
It was such an odd sight, it took me a minute to realize Texas had already mobilized road construction workers throughout the northern part of the state to head down south to aid the victims of Hurricane Harvey!
I'm pretty sappy so you won't be surprised that it brought tears to my eyes when I saw how The Great State of Texas was already mobilizing, not only the National Guard, but everyday people.
Texas National Guard Mobilizing To Assist, Aug 25, 2017
This is how it's meant to be in the United States. The states take care of themselves and the Federal Government stands ready to provide Federal assistance when and where needed.
Our President had already offered Texas, Louisiana, and Mississippi back up support and Federal Aid when and where needed, but the American spirit was alive and well on our Texas highways yesterday and probably for weeks to come.
Thanks for dropping in!
