Gallows humor is important for getting through dark times, but sometimes...just don't.
That sale banner is taken from the Palmetto site, I'm pretty sure. I remember it because I saw it pasted upon cases of ammunition (they only lasted for an hour). I was quite amused that their computer algorithm deemed it necessary to create an advertising campaign for ammunition of all things -- which they no doubt could sell just as quickly with no discounts at all.

Also, anyone knows if Avatar is doing okay? I left him a comment, but he may have abandoned Mee.nu a while ago. My power was out for 4 days straight. I think he's in Dallas and weather was worse up there. I know someone on Plano who had pipes burst.
Ubu is in Houston, but he's faring a little better. He already posted a summary of sorts.

I've E-mailed Avatar, Ubu, and Ben a short time ago. I haven't heard anything as of yet.

I haven't seen anything from you but I can't get to my old email addresses for Bridgebunnies and Houblog right now. Have power; no water (busted pipes outside). Was still recovering from WuFlu; this has set me back a couple weeks or so in recovery.

Crap. That's horrible. Do you, by any chance, have any out of season Hurricane water?
I hope you feel better
Ben responded yesterday, he and the rest of the 4 Geek Family are OK but the local infrastructure is now a unique fixer-upper opportunity.
Still no word on Avatar.

I'm down to a couple of small bottles of potable water. Got a 250 gal. tank that I don't consider potable; that's what I'm flushing toilets with. carrying buckets is wearing me out though. Grocery store is out. Despite covid, i had to go there yesterday; out of other necessities.

Ubu, I'm out in Friendswood dealing with fallout from all the leaks. We've got pressure, but we're supplemented by the Houston system, so we're on a boil notice. May be safe/potable by Monday. Friendswood can't certify until Houston can certify.

Yep, I'm finally in water as of today. Could not get a plumber to return my calls; but my yard guy does contracting on the side and knew someone to do the work.
