    Hey thanks for the concern guys, but no real problems in DFW some rain and 35-45 mph winds. Just saw Galveston on the tube - the beach areas were basically wiped out or under water. Downtown Houston had high water and lots of broken windows. The rest of the Houston area is basically with electricity - they said "millions" on the tube. Sure wouldn't want to be locating down there amongst all those overflowing bayous. The smell is sure to be horrible and then you have all kinds of dead and alive critters, including snakes, everywhere. Oh well, as long as the Cowboys beat the Beagles Monday nite, I'll be all right!
    I might not be as good as I once was, but I'm as good once as I ever was !

    I believe they are called the BENGALS......

    Glad to hear you are doing well. Hubby's flight to LA was postponed again for the 3rd time! I am glad that he is home and wasn't down there for that.... but sure missing the paychecks. Yahoo... any word on when Baton Rouge might be online again? I can imagine that you are really busy right now. We have been getting rain.. rain ... rain... today we are suppose to be getting the effects of Ike... we have gone from flash flood warnings to just flood warnings. I hate rain!

    No, we play the Philthydelphia Beagles Monday Night. BTW, in my previous post I meant to say there were"millions reported to be without electricity". Can you imagine how many pole replacement tickets there will be?

    Haven't heard anything about going to Houston or East Texas - yet. Hey Yahoo, we didn't have any damage to speak of here in DFW. I spoke to our on-call guy yesterday and he had no storm related call-outs. Our soon-to-be new customer, Oncor Electric, had about 110,000 outages in East Texas, but had put about 30 to 40,000 back on-line Sunday. BTW it's supposed to be clear with a 10-15 mph North breeze and a high of 84 today - Hello Fall!!
