Hurricane Ike Update – 2130h


I went to fetch Oma back here; there was hardly anyone on the road — I passed maybe three other cars on I-10. There are lots of small branches in the streets; lots of people don’t have power, probably as a result of transformers blowing when branches blow onto power lines. I guess it’s not cost-effective for the utilities to keep trees cut away from lines, and most people don’t think to do it themselves until it’s dark and the wind is blowing. I for one am sure not going to get up on a ladder with a chainsaw right now.
