I've talked a couple of teenagers into giving me a shot at the computer but I said I'd only be a few minutes so I'll make this short: we evacuated just about 60 or 70 miles inland, which only took 3 hours despite the traffic because I'd put a lot of time into studying roads and alternate routes. I found what was apparently the last open motel room in Sugarland (which is a suburb on the west side of Houston). The storm was not much effect right here, maybe 40mph winds and not even the trailers are down, still have power and water where we are. Trying to get word about my home but that's hard to come by. Thanks for those who have expressed concern.
