We're Here

That's about it.  No power.  This coming from a laptop with dial-up.  Devastation all around.  Blogging will resume one of these days.

Good to hear, Bill. We's all worried about you folks.

Richard said...

Keeping you in our thoughts and prayers, Bill.

Toby said...

just got online to check out your status. Glad to hear that basically you made it through. We'll be here when you resume; take care!

Victor Gischler said...

I feel your pain, man. Hope you get power back faster than I did.

So glad you guys are safe; so sorry to hear about the power. Hang in there.

I've been checking in to see if you're safe, your jury-rigged laptop with dial-up shows you can't keep a good blogger down!

Take care, I hope the storm ends soon.

David Cranmer said...

I'm sorry to hear about the devastation but glad to hear you are ok. Hopefully it won't be long for all your utilities to return.

Neil said...

Alive and kicking is good. Fences can be rebuilt.

Gerard Saylor said...

Glad things are alright.

Using a laptop with dial-up right after a hurricane is disturbingly dedicated.

Hey you, Stu and I really want to know if you and Judy are ok. I'll email too but the first chance to have to call out, let us know. I know you will.

Dragged out the atlas today just to confirm what i remembered about where you guys lived. I didn't like it at ALL. Please be okay.

All best, Andi

Good to know that you and Judy are ok. The news on KHOU-TV did show your area being hit pretty bad. Guess you know that KHOU went national during the hurricane coverage. It was good to see my old stomping ground from a local perspective.

Glad you guys are OK, which is the most important thing. We watched all last night and some this a.m. and it looked pretty bad.

Take it as easy as possible.

I echo Gerard's sentiment about your dedication to this blog. It demonstrates your spirit, courage, and borderline insanity. But we appreciate it. I hope the devistation you mentioned doesn't include your property. Luck.

We appreciate you checking in to let us know you made it through, Bill. Watching the radar last night, we kept looking for Alvin. Looked like the rain was really pounding the place. Best of luck with the aftermath, and I hope the power comes back on soon.

JD Rhoades said...

Thanks for letting us know, Bill. Hope they get things back to normal soon.

Juri said...

Here's hoping everything goes back to normal soon. And that your paperback collection remains in safe.

Craig Zablo said...

Glad to hear you made it through!

Dave White said...

Glad you're okay. Hope power returns soon.

Prayers and hope winging your way.

Hope all turns out well-enough sooner rather than later...sorry about the refrigerator stuff, and I hope it's not too hot there.

Not until a few days ago did I realize a line can be drawn from Galveston through Alvin to Houston...

Doc Quatermass said...

Glad you weathered the storm, man. Cat's okay? Books? Frog in the flower pot?

Buddy of mine in Plant City down below Orlando thought Charley was going to be a neat experience until winds started getting up around 85 miles an hour and the little Vietnamese lady across the street carrying a sheet of plywood started parasailing away.

Thankfully, it sounds like you came through okay.

I look forward to the novel you will write using this background!

After 56 hours, my family is back online. My street just had lots of tree damage. No apparent structural damage to any houses in my neighborhood. One tree uprooted and thrown but missed a garage by inches. Now, Monday morning, the weather had turned. It's actually fall in Houston.
