Stop signs? Downtown? WTF?

Down in NoDo

You may have heard that last night's downtown fire has left much of NoDo without power this morning, including daily information source the Houston Chronicle. (We swear we had nothing to do with it.) However, the Chron IT guys have managed to MacGyver up a bloglike page to deliver news in a "simplified format. "

Those of us downtown folk unaffected by the power outage weren't completely out of the woods this morning. I counted four near-accidents at the corner of Louisiana and Texas, where crews placed stop signs in the middle of the street to replace non-working traffic signals. I durn near had my front end sheared off by a pickup that refused to stop. Fortunately, aside from those near misses, things seem to be coolio. We'll continue to serve up news in our "simplified format," too. — Steven Devadanam
