We arrived in Dallas Sunday evening. We are in a hotel and very comfortable and thankful to be here. Everywhere you go are evacuees.
I was able to find a link to see some pictures. It is www.klvi.com
I have seen things locally in our home town, but was not able to see Galveston and the beach where out beach house was located. It is very hard to even know from these pictures, but were able to see the extent of the destruction. Really, it is all material things and the important thing is that people are safe.
Well now it is 2 a.m. Tues. morning. Had a hard day with Annabel. Having tummy issue and vomiting today. She loves home and this traveling is not the best for her. Routine is what she thrives on! We did go to the ER and after 3 1/2 hours with 12 still in front of us, decided to try back tomorrow or maybe some acute care center with less waiting. The ER people were doing all they could and found a waiting area for us where no others were. They said possibly we would not even get to a room until 7 a.m. She is asleep and will see what tomorrow brings. Our pediatrician is so wonderful at home. He stayed for the last hurricane and answered phone to give advice 3 years ago. Will try him in the morning and see what to do.
Later in the evening we were able to view arieal views of Crystal Beach and zoom in on our road, and maybe five house standing on our side and our was gone. I am not dwelling on this as to there is so many things more important. I talked with a friend in Galveston today and was told it is everything the media is saying and worse. They have lost everything and this is where they lived. But as they said no one is hurt and that is important.
We know that all at home are doing everything to get us back and our city up and running. It is not safe to be there with no power or water supply. We are just in the way and they ask that we stay out so their job can be done. We are comfortable her and have all extended family with us. Thank you to all who have called or emailed or commented on the post!
Sorry for the delay in the post, but Verizon towers have been very busy and that is my internet source. I am also busy trying to make sure the kids are settled and all are entertained and happy!
A very sweet friend from home offered to take these photos of Annabel. I am so thankful for her offer, and she took so much time with Annabel. This is one of over a hundred plus photo and also the one on the sidebar. Thank you, Carolyn! Hoping ya'll are safe from the storm.
