Bedding down with 25,000 of your closest friends

I can't imagine the Superdome. Water rising. Toilets backed up. Power out. The stench after three days.

Reports now that all the folks in the Superdome need to be evacuated. To Houston. To the Astrodome.

From one large venue to another.
As flood waters continue to rise and power supplies deteriorate in New Orleans, relief officials have decided to move the 25,000 people being sheltered at the Superdome to the Astrodome in Houston, Red Cross officials said Wednesday.
How folks are goiing to be taken from the Superdome, now surrounded by rising waters, all the way to Houston hasn't been worked out.

Evacuating all the refuges from the Superdome by small boat could take days.
