Hurricane Ike

Well, I was out of power for over 30 hours. Houston's been knocked down, but not out.

Useful links.
UH emergency site. (for Texas)
Do you qualify for FEMA assistance?
Channel 2 has a lot of useful information.
On the CenterPoint website, they have a handy list of maps to tell you which areas are without power. I have a handy link to the most current one, if you ask me for it.
Here's a website with lots of news, divided into part of town (such as Fort Bend). Hurricane Ike Resources from OneStorm. That's a good use of a blog, if you ask me.

Picasa has a cool face tagging feature, now.

And, as an aside, the 10 worst commutes in the US, according to one measure. No one should be surprised that Houston made the list.
