My sis is okay in Houston

with 3 comments

I talked to my sis tonight. She lives in Houston and weathered Ike this weekend.  I am so  very thankful that they are okay. The cell phone reception has not been great and many times I’ve called them and the phone goes straight to voice mail.  They are without electricity and so the heat is pretty unbearable.  She told me the nights are very uncomfortable without air conditioning. The roof on her house has a little damage and they are very relieved that is all the damage they sustained from this storm. They were told today that they will probably be without running water tomorrow. They have filled every available container with water and have a good supply of bottled water. She told me she stood in line for 3 hours for a bag of ice.  They have been cooking some of their meals on a gas grill. 
 
She told me that the storm was horrible, especially the second wall after the eye of the hurricane. The hurricane was so large that the storm lasted a very long time.  Let’s pray that everyone touched by the hurricane is okay and that they can get back to their "normal" lives soon.

  3. Oh Jeri, I\’m so glad they are all ok.  Houston got hit hard, so God must really have been watching out for the, thank goodness.  And bless their heart to be without electricity.  With all that humidity they must have I can only guess how miserible they are.  We lost it here for 3 days after all those horrible storms last summer.  August in Texas in NOT the time to be without electricity, but after a hurricane with the damage, the lack of clean water AND no electricity, whoa I think I would be bunking on your couch…giggle
    Sending prayers up for them and so happy you were spared.
    Hugs,
    Vikki
