Meridian, Mississippi is completely out of gas. They just got power yesterday.

(I'm on the phone with her now.)

She says she sees mostly large roadsign damage.

She just passed a gas station with gas. There was line from the pump all the way up the exit ramp, with a cop allowing each car up to the pump. "This must be the martial law thing, huh?" she wonders.

She still has 3/4 tank and 140 miles to go. I calculate that the 14.5 gallons in gas cans in the back of the station wagon gives her 400 miles reserve. So she shouldn't be stranded.
