    We have a hurricane on the way to Houston and the powers that be tell us we will probably be without power for a while. It could be days or even a week or more.
    Please don't do any cool event stuff in game while we are away. =) Please?

    Just a guess ... but since they were initially planning on being in Austin this weekend, and have had to cancel that, I would say that the liklihood of them scheduling events in the next few days is fairly low. GL and stay safe :)

    I would think so, too. It's just that sometimes it takes weeks to restore power and services to all parts of the affected area.
    I guess we could go hop online at a coffee shop or something if our UO withdrawal becomes too severe. :sword:

    Thanks to each of you for your good wishes.

    tell IKE that tina isn't in Texas, so not to slap you too hard



    And tell him thanks a lot for my gas going up a dollar a gallon overnight




    my little bro lives in San Ant... what's the effect of the hurricane there? I might have to call him

    San Antonio is close enough to shore that it is in a danger zone for flash flooding, high winds, etc... they'll probably get everything a non-coastal city could as they are in the line of fire.

    Hope everyone fares well through all of this!

    And if they DO implement new content while you're offline, I promise as a fellow LA player to snag event goodies for both you and Wraith.

    Now get your house prepped, just in case, and stay safe, lady!

    Hey Conner and the rest of you North Texas folks. Looks like Ike is heading up 45. It may take a right soon. How you folks doing? I hope you Houston area folks are on a laptop somewhere else!

    -Native Houstonian myself- Austinite now. -I've been through many of those and feel for you all. There is only cloudy skies here in Austin, and such a shame that they cancelled the Town-Hall, but "safe is better than sorry!"

    It looks like the path will be heading up the I 59 corridor and take rain up along East Texas and Louisianna to Shrevesport then head NE.
     
  26. We're just getting wet. Houston got nailed, with windows in the downtown skycrapers being blown out all over town. They're talking about flooding throughout the area. Here in the Dallas area there's just been on and off rain for most of the day up until about a half hour ago or so. It's been lightly raining steadily since then, but that's it. I imagine the drag races probably got rained out this weekend, although they may have gotten some of the prelims done on Friday.

    We made it! Yay! We just got our power back tonight and I am really happy about it! I love air conditioning! I love the internet! =)

    It has been a rough ten days and Ike was a frightening storm. Fortunately, we didn't have too much damage. We have some roof damage and had one window broken, but we only had water in part of the house.

    We ended up driving around a lot yesterday and we didn't see even one household that wasn't damaged by the storm in one way or another. We did see some businesses that didn't appear to be damaged, but they might have been repaired already. I don't want to go through another strong storm or its aftermath. Anyway, we're safe and sound.

    I want to thank everyone for their prayers and good wishes! Draconi and crew - thanks for not doing anything exciting in game while we were away. =)

    First time I've ever heard anyone say thanks to the powers that be in UO for NOT doing anything.

    Glad yer ok, welcome back.
     
  34. I feel ya BlissMarie.
    Grew up in houston myself - 40+ yrs.
    Went thru tons of storms but not many since Carla caused such massive damage as Ike.

    Just outside Baton Rouge now and we made it thru Gustav with minimal damage ourselves thankfully, but 100's of 1000's here went thru pure hell for about 2 weeks ...some still are without power.

    Glad you made out ok.

    We missed the final days of the turn-ins and the launch of pub 55/56 to our shard, but hey, least we didnt all get blown into the gulf aye?

    :D
