A long, cold winter
The gulf is bracing for another storm, this time the forecasts are for Rita to hit Texas in the Galveston area. If that happens, with just about all of the state's refinery operations located there, dust off those bicycles and pump up the tires. Cuz there just might not be any gas for a while.

best response - "Only if you made sure they had mirrors so they could watch themselves watching themselves... "
