Report From Hurricane Central


To add insult to injury Mother Nature sent us a thunderstorm that would have been noteworthy under normal circumstances.

Interstate 10 is once again masquerading as the Grand Canal and our street (we live 10 blocks from 1-10) flooded. That’s only happened once before – during Allison. No water in the houses. We are on pier & beam and 5 feet above grade so should we have water in the house we'd expect to see Noah and his ark sailing down the street.

I am blowing kisses at My Beloved for getting us the honking big generator. Being married to someone who is a commercial construction manager is frequently a blessing.  Especially in the aftermath of a hurricane.

I'm so glad that you are safe and dry Guusje. I've been thinking of you non-stop. I can't believe the online photos of Houston.

Glad you are okay! My beloved is now SET on getting a BIG HONKING GENERAOR too! Maybe you can give me some tips :). We had gas and water, but no power until tonight! Heat is NOT a good thing when you are in the "hot flash" stage, combine that with an 11 yr. old seperated from ALL electronics and I feel blessed that we are all still alive --- going to prison for killing one of the two fighting males in my house isn't my idea of a good time!
Stay safe and take care --- see you in the aftermath!
