I have had power restored for about an hour. It is 2052 CDT.
No significant damage in my small community NE of Houston. Power was out for just about 2 days.
Problem now is lack of gasoline and supplies. The local stations have been out of gasoline since Friday afternoon, same for the teller machines. We had water continuoulsly for duration though pressure was reduced today. With the power restored, the pressure is back up.
With power restored, I expect the supply and bank problem to begin restoring itself on Monday. The local news says gasoline supply should begin easing as well.
In the future, I will be sure to have a small generator, water, a small propane powered cook stove, canned goods, LED flashlights, battery powered radios, and lots of batteries.
It sure is nice to have my computer back.
I am piecing together a Mini-ITX system. Many of the parts are enroute. I hope they arrive soon so I can begin building my minimalist DSL system.
