This is a pine tree laying on a house in Mom's neighborhood.
This is evacuation traffic heading in the opposite direction that I was. My lanes were clear! Imagine that.
I saw this sign on my drive into Houston. Imagine if this was the first news you heard of it.
OK, this very cool picture I took in the middle of the night. It is a 15 second exposure. You can see the amber colored lights causing the clouds to glow. Also notice that the trees are all blurry because of the winds. I took this picture out of the back window of the house.
This is the same pine tree as in the first picture, repeated here to make things look worse than they were. OK, they were pretty bad, but I have a limited number of pictures.
After the storm passed everyone went out to clean up and/or take pictures.
I don't understand why we lost power for 12 days... ?
