The power just went out. This time, I think it's going to last a while.

Jane and C-Monster are in bed. I'm camped out in my study with the Coleman lantern and a battery powered TV.

Pity, the David Carradine cheese-fest "Circle of Iron" was just about to start on DTV. :-(

More as I know it.

Morning Update

It's about an hour until sunup. We're hanging in there. Scenic Pearland missed the eye, which meant we ended up with hours and hours and hours of torrential rain and sustained 40+ mph winds that are still going. I've been up all night; Jane and C have been up since 4 or so.

I don't know how much of a hit the house took yet. We've got at least a half-dozen buckets deployed.

Houston is pretty much 100% without power and likely to be for quite a while.

More after the sun come up and I can assess the damage.
