In fact... both Shal and I were requested to show up for work today, which is great!
The weather was VERY humid but quite nice coming in, but I'm expecting heat index temps of around 115 by the time I leave work and drive home with no a/c but the twin70 cooling system. I'm just hoping the traffic is light on the way home because I really don't want to spend another 5 hours on the road.....
Damage across the Houston area was VERY light from what I've personally seen. A few trees, some limbs and one or two signs is about the extent of it.
As of this morning, about 200,000 people are without power. Most are expected to have it restored within 3 days if not sooner. But I understand that most of the power infrastructure is down and will have to be replaced (mostly power poles and lines)
EDITED:::: The power lines are down in Jasper, TX, NOT Houston.... This is the area where they are saying it could take up to a month to restore most power.
(posting at work again and not paying attention.....)
