Today, my cousin went riding in the neighborhood here in Arkansas and us flatlanders aren't used to all the hills. My mom and other cousin had to go rescue him because he was at the bottom of the hill with a flat tire and didn't have the energy to walk back here. Hahahah!
We will be heading back to Houston tomorrow to stay with my son and his wife for a while. The latest estimates on having electricity restored in Beaumont range from 2 weeks to 6 weeks. When I first heard 2 weeks, I thought, "No, way!!" Now, since I've heard estimates of 6 weeks, I'm praying for 2 weeks.
I just spoke to my dad again and he said that just a couple of little pieces of siding on the back of my house are peeled back. I pictured the whole back side of my house being bare. So, that was good news.
I'll try to update again later. To quote the girlfriend in Shaun of the Dead, "Bye, bye, bye, bye, bye!"
