Weathering the storm
« on: October 12, 2008, 08:21:55 PM »
Hey Big Khanz,

Just wondering how things went for you, regarding the recent hurricane.  Last I remember, you were talking about boarding things up and hunkering down.  Anyway, I'm glad to see that you're still around!

Love, peace, and bear grease,

My house was not damaged at all!!!!! Proper Prior Planning Prevents Piss Poor Performance!!! Being propered was the best thing I've ever done. Most weren't so lucky, and many wouldn't have benefited from any amount of properedness.

Our area is trashed. We have a friend staying with us, have several friends' pets staying with us and it's a hell of a time keeping some of them away from the snake cages (our largest is a 20ft+  Buhrmese python!!!!!). We were one of the 1st neighborhoods to get power back, but we just got internet and cable back. It's such a shame to see all the kids back inside, but it was great while it lasted. The 1st weeks after Ike were amazing to see. The level of community that everyone showed while looking out for each other was awe inspiring(God I love Texas). 8) Everynight was a block party. I even saw several neigbors using their HORSES and makeshift carts to help get water and food for some that couldnt make the 18mile round trip to where FEMA and others were set up!

After seeing all the kids outside and the sense of community that was restored, I've heard alot of people regret things going back to normal.  :' (For a few precious weeks everyone here got to step away from all the BS and experience some Caveman Power.

The community spirit sounds great, I wish I was there for that!

In my neighborhood, the families are still having big get togethers and I see a lot of kiddos out so I think this was a good outcome to the storm
