we’re back (sort of)

[image from (Chris Graythen/Getty Images)/abcnews]

I’m blogging tonight from College Station, TX, where we’re staying until the electricity is restored in Houston.  We rode out the storm fine, but it’s taking some time to get the power back on.  Classes at UH might begin again as early as Tuesday.  If we have any gulf coast/Houston area readers, it would be nice to hear how it went for you.  I’ll return to normal blogging as soon as I can.

Best,

DM

  1. Glad to hear you’re okay, Dave!

    How did the puppy cope with all the storm activity?

  2. Good to hear that you rode out the storm safely! I hope power is restored soon — candlelight can be quite romantic for one evening, but you never realise how often you use electricity until it’s gone…

  3. Still no power, and right now I’m blogging from Sugar Land, TX, using a friend’s machine. The temperature, thankfully, has gone down to the mid-60s, so we’re not breeding mold and mosquitoes in the dark, but there are still about 1.5 million without power here in Houston and in the region.

    I’ll put up a completely puppy oriented post soon, I promise. In the meantime, thanks for your inquiries.

  4. Glad to hear you got through Ike okay. I am here on campus, due to the administration’s inexplicable decision to reopen despite most of the city not having power, a boil water order in effect, debris in the streets, and few operating streetlights.

    Campus damage was fairly minimal except for downed trees, with the exception of the Architecture & Art building, which lost part of its roof and flooded (books damaged), the Melcher Center (KUHT and KUHF damaged), and one other building.

  5. Hey Julie, hope you got through the storm OK. Our lights finally went back on yesterday at home, and I taught yesterday and will teach tomorrow, probably to classes that are about 1/3 full.

    Hope all is well at the library.
