Over 3 million without power. Made landfall in Galveston at 2:10AM CST. High tide was at 3:01AM CST.

From the sound of things, Galveston and many coastal areas are devastated. They will know more once daylight arrives.

I just talked to Clark. They have been w/o power since Midnight. They are safe though at the house; including all 6 dogs. There was no damage at the house, and the wind wasn't so bad. The house only shuttered once.

Just talked to my brother who lives in Spring TX (just north of Houston). Two large pine trees uprooted and fell on his garage caving in the roof and just mising his 28' RV. He had another tree fall on his truck. Sounds like it was pretty bad with a lot of sustained winds. They lost power but he is all set-up with a generator. He will send me some pics later. Still too windy to go outside. He said the news reported the area may be without power for up to two weeks. Not good.

I would not jump to conclusions on loss of life ,or devastation of certain areas, the news reported the keys were completely underwater on tuesday , and the weather channel people are morons. I would be interested to find out about the biker bar "poop deck" .

Talked to Clark a little while ago and everything was fine but in the dark..so whats new
6 dogs in the house..NOW that could be the real Texas Disaster!!!!!
and then there's that bachelor refrigirator
Fellow pilot who lives seveal blocks off Lake Conroe lost all shingles on his roof and many big water leaks and no lights.
Would be good to hear fromThunderstruck..alot of people from Texas and La. here at the hotel in Pensacola..the ones from the Lake Charles area have been in contact with their local Nat. Guard and major flooding and high water on those bayous.

Austin is cloudy and a little windy, but no rain.

All of the bad weather and rain is east of I-35.

Hell, I plan to go to the lake tomorrow!

Good luck, y'all!
