Fortunately, the weather has warmed up, and we all have thawed out and our water is running again.

Houstonians are just not accustomed to that kind of cold. A day or two at a time, we can handle, but days without water and heat, is a bit much.

Eventually, the power would come back on for a few hours, then, off again.We were lucky, we have gas, so we were able to cook, make coffee, boil water, that came out in a very thin stream.

The worst part was the cold. It was so hard to keep warm. In the past during freezes, we kept power.

Did you have an interesting time, or maybe broken pipes or worse?

Let us know. We all suffered.

Please type your remarks in the message form below.

Thanks for your response.

I was three days without power here in Jamaica Beach. A water pipe burst and flooded my downstairs apartment leaving 2 inches of water over the floor and soaking everything that was on the floor including large throw rugs. The worse part is 30 Oleander plants froze and had to be cut down and hauled off. These plants had been along our fence line for many years and were 10-15 feet tall. My wife would have cried had she been here to see her plants like this.
It could have been worse. Many suffered worse damage than me.
