So we trekked here to Austin, and hunkered down or, had hurricane parties and eating contests.. it only took us 6 hours to get here but when our daughter and family left the next morning from about a mile from us, it took them 19 hours to travel the same distance. same for our other friends. some 25 hours from Houston area to San Antonio etc. there were no hotel rooms but we had been invited to stay with friends in Roundrock, he works for dell. not to be tacky but the water in his swimming pool was a little warm, and i prefer a different brand of scotch but we made do. lol. That’s bad, considering the fate so many had on the road to hell and back.
they have told us not to come back too soon so we will probably wait until sometime in October, have to be home for the Neil Diamond concert on the 11th. we may somehow wear out our welcome before that.
the news was good. our neighbor in Clute stood in our yard on the phone with me today and told me that the 17 pecan trees were erect and not on our house. the creek was only rippling. at our beach house, no wind damage and no water inside, according to another friend who was there to check his rental houses, even more wonderful news. as for the improvements to the house in Houston that will have to wait ‘til we return to ascertain. not a problem. we may be the last back but that is ok.
just wanted you to know what actually went on during an evacuation from the coast. oh, the stories we could actually tell. God was on our side this time, for sure.
