Well, I'm back home for a few days.
Going back to Beaumont, Tx. on October 19 for another stint.
This trip I stayed in Houston and looked at damaged property in
Conroe, Cleveland, Silsbee, Port Arthur and Beaumont, Tx.
Not too much damage around Houston and north around Cleveland/Conroe.
East and Southeast, however, it's a different story.
All around Galveston Bay is pretty much demolished. I don't think any one
building escaped damage. And a fair number of buildings need to come down,
if they haven't already.
Going to take awhile, maybe a year or more, before full services are restored
to the area.
For those of us who live in the North and Northeast - this is one of the big reasons
that we stay there.
If you haven't seen the actual storm aftermath, you really can't comprehend it.
The damage is everywhere.
Makes our cold winters look pretty good.
And - don't even get me started on the snakes and alligators!!
Man, I hate being lunch for some critter.
