I came home this afternoon to find a voice mail from my sister in Houston. The storm’s now passed and its only damage at her house was a board off the fence. No flooding, and not as much damage as some of her neighbors’ homes suffered (trashed trees, roof shingles ripped off, and even several garage doors blown off which she said really surprised her). There’s been no electricity since midnight, and that could turn into a big issue later, but at least she’s safe and in an un-flooded undamaged house. And has cell phone service.
Thanks for all the kind thoughts.
