Well we just now got our electricity back here at 12:40 am est.
We lost it around 9pm right after the Steelers Intercepted the Browns for the first at the beginning of the 2nd quarter,My daughter was freaked out she worked herself up the point of bring back up dinner so we loaded up both kids and rode around town til the Steeler game was over and they where both asleep.

Wow, all this makes me glad I live in the north central part of the country, away from the coastal storms. Good luck to everyone affected, I hope the kids calm down and damage to your homes is minimal.

Well, from reports back home, the house is still in one piece with no damage... I'm in San Antonio 200 miles away in a motel.

Back in Houston, No power still, all stores are closed, and there's no gas either... They are saying could be up to 3 or 4 weeks for power, and some of the freeways are under water.

We are safe, and I'm greatful for that... but feeding an 11 month old baby bottles out of an ice bucket at the Hampton Inn is getting old already. Not to mention the $848 a week price tag it's costing us for the 2 rooms.

This was a bad storm, and we are leary of going back home yet, as they say to be ready for 2 weeks of no food or water until things get back to normal once we do get home.

We have a tough road ahead... but as I said, we are greatful we have our health and our home seems to be intact.... just trees and fences down.

Thanks for all the support guys and keeping the place running.

Robert!!  damn man every time i seen that the disaster on tv. paper etc. i thought of you man.  I really didn,t know what part of Tx you were at, but then again that storm was as big as Tx.!  Just glad to hear from you, and at least you had sense enough to leave the area you were at.  I,m sure this site is the last thing on your mind right now (and it shold be) but if you need anything (and i mean anything) don,t hesitate to ask man, we,ll keep RG going, you just do what you gotta do.  Read PM please

Glad to hear Robert & Family are ok, not so glad about the result of the game though  :(




I wanna see some big ape grab that guy on the Steelers by the hair  :D
He got a tattoo on his arm that say "Baby" He got another one that just say "Hey" And every Sunday afternoon he is a dirt track demon in a 57 Chevrolet

Good to hear you made it through the storm Robert. Glad to hear the baby is doing as well as can be expected. Good luck getting back to normal life sometime soon.

And Wolfman - Here's what I've got to say to your football team. I was at the AFC Championship in 1988 when the Broncos beat the Browns with "The Fumble." Of course the Super Bowl didn't go so well after that, but...
