God bless the universal power supply. Power went out here about an hour ago and I’m still humming along. Wind has picked up but only slightly.
Apparently, they lose power very easily out here in the sticks. They were even told that they could be without for as much as two weeks even after the storm had forecast to be east of us. Yikes.
It appears much of central Houston has fared a bit better. Most of those I’ve chatted with online still seem to have power and things are looking good.
Figure about another two hours of stormy weather and things should begin to clear up at least for those of us in southeast Texas.
Unfortunately, I think it is only beginning for many in the northeast part of our state, which is exactly where my dad, his wife and my two step sisters headed to “flee the storm.”
