That is right just as we were unpacking from our rmove to the lake and food shopping at Walmart I got a call from Missy saying we have power. She and Greg went to my house and YES we have light! Life is back to normal. The kids can sleep in their own rooms and beds!
Yesterday was hubby’s birthday so I “baked” cupcakes ;). Of course now Payton has taken them and they are all upside down. She is a mess! That was so typical Payton.
Went to my first POD (point of distribution) today. Finally one close by. We got ice, water, MRE. Yep military DOD MRE hubby is thrilled. These PODs are very nice since we have no power yet, ugh
One of my good friends lost her 8 year old son on Thursday due to possible heart failure. Please keep Dawn and her family in your thoughts and prayers, they need them. I wish I could go hold her and cry with her but I am stuck here in no man’s land with an occasionally working cell phone. Dawn you know I love you!
Geez we get phone then they take it away again, UGH. Not nice. Good news is the girls will have school on Monday so things will be more normal then. I went today to Clear Lake to see my parents and do laundry, just like in college. The damage there was amazing, many trees and fences down. I took a side trip to Friendswood to our old neighborhood. So much damage, most rooves were tarped, fences gone and our old house had roof damage in four spots. My good friends were lucky, just lost their fence.
We are still without power, but have a generator. I am so earning my camping badge for this. We never lost water or natural so I can cook, shower, and do dishes. The weather is gorgeous and low humidity, yay! We are out and about getting in lines for gas to run the generator.
Just wanted to let everybody know a are still here. Disneymum is home with the kids and I am rolling the dice on a generator. We still have no power or any idea when we will get it. We have only information from the radio so a have not seen the effects of the storm other than our immediate area. All are well here.hope all are well with you.
