All the Houston family is fine. Without power & water. For the most part contained to their neighborhood b/c of downed trees. But fine nonetheless. They do have generator power for necessity items. No word on when utilities will return.
David is still waiting for assignment. He found out this morning that Control Center "lost" an entire group of troopers. They signed in with Control as ordered when they arrived on Thursday, however, that paperwork went *poof* and they were in limbo until today. They're obviously frustrated b/c they could have had assignments yesterday afternoon if they hadn't gotten lost in the shuffle. But things are now worked out & they should have duty stations in the next 24 hrs. (Photo: this is what the staging area parking lots look like - a sea of black & white.)
