I'm posting this from the Apple store in the Galleria, which fortunately is open! Looks like everything's going to open up for normal business within the next few days. There are already some restaurants open, which means we won't have to rely on what we salvaged from the fridge and pantry tonight.
We're leaving our cat at home. She's got the garage to stay in, and I put some food and water out for her, which I will replenish every day.
Poor kitty, she's going to be lonely.
But at least I can take a SHOWER now! I shall do that when I get back to the hotel.
