They told us we should have had power back this past monday.Now they are telling us sunday at the earliest I have already burned 60 gallons in the generator(almost 200.00) Guess i will start sucking fuel out of the boat since it looks like it's going to take a while to clean up the lake


And the cable thing sucks,Im thinking really hard (I know thats a feat for me) about Direct TV ect.

My 86 year mom still does not have power either. After I got power I tried to get her to come and stay at my house, and some of her neighbors tried to get her to stay there also. She just does not want to leave her house. Saturday I offered her my motor home at her home. She accepted that. So far now she has gone thru about 70 gallons of diesel. Hope she gets power soon.

I hope by now that most eveybody has power . Center Point released us on Sunday and we just got in. It's was a long three day drive and 1400 miles . We worked in Conroe, Clevland and Houston ( not the good side ) . We did stay on lake Conroe at the Coves, It looks like a nice place maybe one day we can come back without the storm damage. I hope that we helped get some OSO lights on . Now it's time for a beer and a nap.

Got power back last Thursday around 5'ish. My wife used her charm on some guys from Maryland. I was working on the boat when they came to the house, so I am guessing that was not your crew or we would have talked


Thanks for helping us get back to normal.

I had power back on at the house after 18 hours thanks to a centerpoint superintendent living on our street. I took two weeks to get power at the office which had flooded.

Thanks to all you linemen for an excellent job.

All in all, I'd say i'm pretty lucky compared to some of the stuff I've seen around the lake. Still no power but it is coming on all around us in the last few days. Thanks for all of the well wishes from the OSO fam.
Glad everything is ok, We stayed on Lake Conroe for about a week, It looks like a very nice lake. The first three nights was without power, There is nothing worse than being a lineman with no lights and there is nothing you can do about it . That Sucks and so does the cold showers. There was a big fire north of where we were staying , I was told it was a big home I hope everybody got out . Maybe one day we can visit without a storm. Take care and we hope you get your life back soon.
