Good to see you back with us.
Sis is there in Houston, and on her grid by Reliant Stadium they are
expecting electricity in another 10 - 12 days. The frustrating thing
is that the folks across the street >all< have power.
I think they are about 50/50 in their neighborhood for electric
restoration. At this juncture with the reports of damage still coming
in, I think they are just glad everyone and everything is OK.
About three years ago I took a crew there and roofed their house and
put on ridge AND hip vent as well as the new shingles, and not a
shingle or piece of vent blew off.
Thinking about though, with 110 mph sustained winds, that's probably
as much luck as anything else.
That is kinda what we were seeing. Across the street neighbors and those 2
rows back got electricity 1 week ago.
It was a 215/35 ratio with us.
Fortunately the SW side of town near the city limit is in good shape. Tree
limbs and fences are the major damage.
Exactly, Most of our winds were from the NE for most of the night but just
before day break we were getting West winds and they were the strongest.
Seems that most all the trees that blew over were laying over pointing east.
Really and truly we missed the electricity. We got electricity yesterday
morning at 9:15 and the AC did not come on until 4:00 pm and then it only
ran about 10 minutes to get it down to 82. It has really been quite
pleasant and 5-6 days after the storm it got quite cool after sun down.
Humidity is only now starting to come a bit closer to normal although the
first 2 days after the storm it was kinda sticky.
