Thanx Fidget! All good down here...finally got a generator cranked up. Lotsa minor damage to the "neighborhood" as shazza said earlier. Downed power lines, trees layed over and fences down, and yes I am putting it all in perspective. "Minor damage" is still having freindz and family, no loss of life. Am just now seeing the devastation on Bolivar/Galveston island 60 miles to the south of us...very sad/concerned but believe me when I say, Galveston will bounce back...better than it ever was?!?
Once power is restored here in the Bayou City in the next day or two...the Texas economy be back up and running again better than it ever was. Leave all that finger pointing to the media and mayors running for a third and fourth term...
Better than it ever was? Been on genset for two hours and just reminded Leroy to put on some Talking Heads!!! Must be schlipping and/or tired!!!
Just got off the phone with Zelly - good people rite there - and find myself ina quandry. All stoked up from talking to old freindz and
on the internet for the first time in 5 dayz, but its getting late! Screw it, have done that once or twice before and still made it to work.
Thanx for the concern everybody and just know that Houstonians will be lending every hand to our neighbors that didn't fair as well as we have.
PS. shazza...schliders are so happy to have the pump/filter/basking lite back on - if only for a few hours a day! Loves us our turtles!!!Zoid
