still hanging out
« on: September 30, 2008, 11:53:37 PM »
in TX.  working in san leon.  pretty bad stuff down here. have not made it to galvaston, but may have a free day later in the week and will try to get in there.  many red cross in already, but until my current job ends, i'll be right here.

hubby is feeding bees and doing his usual great job of keeping things together. 

just thought i'd write a quick update.....off to bed.  i am in a staff shelter and the lights go out at 10...then the snoring starts!!!  :-)

Kathy,
Good to hear you are safe and still doing what you do. Is it totally wiped out down there? Just wondering how much rebuilding is going to have to take place? One of the companies that I work with is trying to get me to run down there and take a look. www.durisolbuild.com. They want me to run down there and set up a few groups to rebuild using this stuff. The product is a dream come true for withstanding hurricanes and such. But is there that much that needs rebuilt down there??

lots of need.  most of galveston is wiped out and much of the coast line around on the mainland.  water came way up and did lots of damage.  more damage than the wind.  don't know the ins and outs of rebuilding, but folk will either have to rebuild, or move.

i have not taken as many pictures as i should have, but i have just been to busy.  tomorow is a day off and after i go the the space center in huston, i'll go get pics if i have time.
