So how's that going down there? I suppose firewood is easily available in your area. It's kind of strange how a really big story like that just kind of drops out of the news once it' cools down and leaves the rest of the country wondering what's happening. Guess they have to move on to the next SCOOP to keep up with the other stations. Wishing you all well / Skip

Thanks for the wellwishes Skip, its true how quickly a event like this fades away, the national media stopped talking about the storm just a few days after it hit, I guess there were not enough dead bodies for them. The only really big things that have happened are that power has been restored to all the customers that can recieve power and that alot of the debris has been picked up in Houston proper, Chambers county is still struggling as they were hit bad by the surge and the wind. Galveston and the smaller coastal communities are just cleaning up and waiting to see how they can rebuild. I hope everyone here leanrt that you cannot trust the federal government to help you with anything and they have gotten better since Katrina, I can only imagine how bad they were then. The bummer for us camping wise is that Galveston state park recieved catastropic damage and we were planning to camp there this last weekend and Lake Livingston state park also remains closed at this time which is another park where we often camp. Anyway we just thank God that we all survived and that the local economy in Houston remains strong. :mrgreen:

We were visiting with my parents (who live in Houston) this past weekend and they seemed to feel that life is pretty much back to normal. They did say they don't think that the little village of Piney Point, within Houston, has had power restored yet (they live next to it). They haven't been down to the coastal communities so haven't seen any of the damage firsthand. Damage at their apt complex has been mostly repaired now (it was fortunately minimal).

Not a peep about it on the news lately - the media love to report doom & gloom, the fresher the better, so of course they've been focusing on the economic crisis. Likely that is growing old too, and they will soon be off to something else new. :roll:

Glad you're ok, Zinger, despite the loss of your parks. Hope at least Lake Livingston is back on line before too long. I suspect Galveston SP is down for the count.

The irony is that the Hill Country is still in a drought. The grass there is downright crunchy. This was our first visit there, so I don't know if that's normal or not.

Good to see you in good spirits too. We have had our share of Tropical weather the last few years, I kind of know how you feel.

What is crazy, is that the weather down here is wonderful and we will not be able to hook up the camper until mid Nov which means we will not have camped in 2 months :cry: All I can do is go out to the storage site and sit in the camper and pretend :D I think I will bring it home and do driveway camping, darn you IKE :mrgreen:

What can you tell me about the status of campgrounds up on Sam Rayburn? It's one of our favorite places to spend a week or so on the way south for the winter.
