And it's about time. I'd bet money that one more day would have irreversibly damaged my ability to ever care about school again. Ever. But what do you expect following a week of no assignments, no class, no responsibilities? As much as I appreciated the slack (given my entire neighborhood was without power) it screwed up my body cycles of "no worries summertime" and "study study schooltime." And really, how can I do homework with only 2 hours of available daylight and a city-wide curfew? How am I supposed to focus on classes when I have soooOOOOoo much complaining to do?
I really hope getting electricity back at my house switches on an a fresh academic mindset. I probably need that more than most household appliances anyway (because the most important things are battery operated anyway, amirite?)

Maybe next time the rain-gods will plan this out a little better: the idea is to pummel Houston with exciting! dangerous! weather without actually causing any longterm damage.
The middle class demands entertainment, after all.

That'll teach 'em to plant trees in the area.

This is a super cop-out post.

Ike update: We survived!
The storm ended up being 110 mph winds when it hit, just barely missing being a Category 3. Which made for an exciting morning. (4:00 green lightning storms, baby!) Our house wasn't harmed, but one of our trees snapped in half and it looks like a forest threw up all over our yard. Pictures of zomgdamage to be posted. Still no power or running water in the house, I'm posting this via telepathy. No school Monday woot.

Edit: Sun Sept 13
Still no power. Running water is possibly contaminated. Everyone smells.

Edit: Mon Sept 14
If you ignore the massive debris everywhere, it's actually quite nice outside. Temp in the 60's (in Houston? In the summertime? NO WAI)
