My family and David's family are OK, although all of them are without power. My dad says the water got closeish to the house but not in. My mom's doing her public health thing, as I see they're telling people to boil water before drinking...

So my family made it to my apartment at 4 AM this morning. For those keeping score, that makes a 17 hour trip from Houston to Austin. Luckily they were able to get gas near the end (they didn't use the A/C to save gas...), and they made it just fine, albeit tired and such. Maggie (our cat) made it as well, and although she was a little skittish at first, she seemed fine this morning, although a little starved for attention :-)

So whatever else happens, I feel a lot better. Although I am tired (stayed up late, went to bed before they got here and then I was kinda wound up so it took me a while to get back to sleep), but that I can deal with. And my mom brought banana nut bread :-)
