I'm Still Alive...

We made it through. I will do a much more thorough post later, as I am using internet at work right now. The scariest part was from 2am - 6am. We hid in our hallway the whole time and I was almost stick to my stomach with fear. Our house is fine, no damage. Still now power (day 3) but the cool front that came in has helped ALOT. We have food and water and many places are opening back up. We need some ice but I think since power is coming back to many stores, we should be getting some soon. I had lunch at the Galleria today and so many people were there for A/C and using outlets to charge phones. Who would ever think you would ever have to do that?
Houston is being awesome, we are all pulling together.
Here is our front yard the morning after:
Needless to say, we have a freshly pruned tree!!
We probably won't have power back until Friday I think. They are working 24 hours a day to get it back so we can only hope.
I will make a much better post later on. Just wanted to check in!

Oh yes, to top off everything... My great grandmother dies at 6:15am this morning. She was 91 years old and in hospice care. He funeral is on Thursday in Kansas and I don't think I can even go. I mean, I have no power, my city is in shambles, and to turn around and drive 9 hours there and back in a few days????
I just can't comprehend all these things.
