Initial Reaction

Sverre drove to a colleagues house to clean out the fridge and the destruction the he passed on the way really brought the storm home to him. We have been extremely fortunate in our home but house just around the corner and down the street where quit sobering it will indeed be weeks before we get power by shear blessing and years before our small community of Klein Texas will recover.

The local high school has had extensive damage and many trees have fallen on roofs and power lines. we have been blessed with a cold front and the temperatures are dropping some it was actually cooler outside than in and lower humidity so we have all the doors and windows open and will have to brave the mosquitoes tonight in order to sleep but will be quit comfortable. Our perishables supply have just about lasted our cooling supply and with no access to ice or power we will switch to staples with minimal losses.
