and counting

9 days without power

And counting.

I'm back at work tomorrow, and we're back in Houston. We're staying with some friends who have power until ours is back on. The power company tells us that our zip code is not slated to have "substantial restoration of power" until sometime after Thursday, September 25th. No definite date. As of this moment ~53% of our zip code is still without electricity. At least our water and sewer is in working order - some people don't even have that much.

(More later on our week in exile.)

Sorry to hear you're still without power. Man, that's a long time. I know that every time we're without power even for a few hours, I realize anew just how much we depend on (and take for granted) the conveniences and luxuries that surround us every day. It's easy to get accustomed to certain things, and incredibly hard to adapt when you no longer have them.

You're in our prayers.
