10:56 am - Suddenly we live in a cul-de-sac
Oh, and an old pine tree on our street completely toppled over. It didn't hit any cars, but it's lying across the road and is blocking the way. Every now and then I see a car try to drive down our street, stop and turn around in someone's driveway, and head off in the other direction. No telling when a crew from the city will come and remove it.
Oh, and I just gotta say: if I hear one more person on the news blather about how we should count our blessings and feel grateful it wasn't any worse than it coulda been, I'ma bust some heads! Yes, I feel sorry for those people in Galveston who lost everything, and I hope they can get their lives back together, but... what about me? My life isn't back together yet, and there's nothing I can do about it except wait helplessly.
Count my blessings? I already have. We suffered no major damage and we still have water and gas. Now when's our power coming back on, dammit?
