my boyfriend is in conroe. he called me at around 7:00 all pissed off because the power was out so the gas stations were closed and he couldn't buy his cigarettes, lol. once he realized how widespread the outage was, he had to go back to work and keep an eye on the computers. on the upside, the company he works for has a backup generator, so there was air conditioning in part of the building. quite a few of the tech guys came over, trying to make sure the servers didn't go down from overheating. he was at work until around 2:00am.
it was crazy how many counties some messup in willis effected. i'm in harris, so i didn't have to deal with it, thank goodness.
