I'm okay. We are one of the few people with power.

It looks like a bomb went off in my neighborhood. Downed trees and signs everywhere. I have a bunch of trees down in my yard, but fortunately they missed the house.

I've been through a bunch of hurricanes, but that by far was the scariest night of my life. It sounded like the ocean and a train at the same time and I kept thinking that the next wind gust was going to bust the windows in.

Drove to get back to my house (I stayed up the street at some place safer)--all the street lights out, lots of trees in people's houses. I've never seen anything quite like it.

The hurricane lasted WAAAAY too long--I thought it wouldn't stop. I am going to go into a coma tonight.

God bless and prayers for everyone affected by the hurricane and the responders trying to help.

Hey, just wanted to come in and wish you guys all the best. I hope everyone is okay. Next week when things start returning to something resembling normal, please drop by our forum and make fun of VY. A little rivalry talk will probably be a welcome distraction from the events of the past 24 hours.

Take care all and know that our thoughts are with you.

I work for CenterPoint. We are doing our best. 2.1 million out of 2.26 customers without power. Myself and my infant included. To those who see us out there, cut us some slack and stop asking when the power will be back up. We are working as fast as possible. The answer is weeks. some area may be less, we are estimating some to possibly be 4+.

If it comes up sooner, consider yourself lucky. We will be working from 5am to 10pm everyday until power is restored in the entire Greater Houston area.

Take care everyone, I will try and keep in touch whenever i get the chance. But without power at home, its rather difficult.

I'm up here in Kansas and I really do wish yall the best. My family stayed through and they don't have power though they do have a working land-line phone. My family on the island made it off ok, and we got my grandma out of Port Arthur in time as well. Our house in Houston is just fine structurally with no flooding. Port Arthur and Galveston are stilled closed off, so we don't know about the other family members' houses.

As a side note, my mom said power could be 2-3 weeks getting back on, so she is actually looking forward to going into work tomorrow at ExxonMobil because they have generators and have AC.

I just drove the car around the block and it isn't too terrible here just north of the 290/610. Branches and brush are all over the place, but I haven't seen any houses completely wiped out yet. Anybody hear from SheTex and how Pasadena's looking?

We have electricity in Baytown. My house had very light damage, fence knocked down, couple of shingles missing. No running water though.

You know how much it sucks coming home from a long day of helping neighbors saw apart huge uprooted oak trees and picking up debris and NOT BEING ABLE TO TAKE A SHOWER!

I at least thank god for power and a/c.

Power just came back this morning. Thanks to Scourge and the other power workers out there. I've got a neighbor's tree resting on the side of my house and some fence damage. Other than that it's just tree limbs everywhere. I've been cleaning since Saturday morning. Saturday and Sunday were hard without football, except for radio.
