8/31/2017 - I SURVIVED or did I

Greetings Family and Friends,


My Spirits and up and I have no cravings for carbs! Yes, a Blast from the Past..........Hmmm sounds like a good title for a series of future posts :-) 

If anyone has been following the news they would have noticed that Texas has got their butt handed to them (us) by the Late Great Hurricane Harvey. Jeez what a name for a Hurricane. 

I live just north of Houston in an area called The Woodlands Township better know just as The Woodlands. We got tons and tons of rain, More than any Hurricane in recent or past history. 

I have a lot of Family and Friends in the surrounding area. Some did better than others. My bosses house and vehicles were a total loss, his neighbor drowned in his own house. I believe he was an older gentleman that was wheelchair bond and was not able to get off the floor. 

How about Dave??? Well, I have to say that I, by the Grace of God, fared very well. Although at times I thought we were going to flood because of the non stop heavy rains, we were fortunate to stay dry. A couple of doors down from me a rather large tree toppled into the street. A crew came by and chopped it up pretty fast. I have some oh so giant pine trees in my backyard and was weary that one might fall over onto my house. I was very fortunate that they stood in place. I did not lose power. The subdivision south of me was under an evacuation notice and I thought we would be next. Then finally yesterday we got a much needed break in the rain. 

Before the storm I stocked up on eggs and assorted meats. I ate well during that time. I cooked up some chicken thighs, hamburger patties, pork spareribs, meatloaf, lots of bacon among other things. 

So, did I survive.............yes, Yes I did. 

Have a great day my Family and Friends. Be Strong, Live Long and Always Battle On!!!

(ZC)er Survivor

Cheers,

Dave

  1. Thanks for keeping us updated after this terrible event.

    One good thing about ZC is that in these bad times, you don't have to run for fresh milk or bread, or even fruit and vegetable... ZC food items just keep well. And even if your fridge and/or freezer goes off, eggs can survivre at room temperature for weeks...

    We are the survivors!!!

    1. Greetings Denis, you are oh so correct with about the eggs. One great snack is boiled eggs with pork skins or better yet make a little egg salad with the pork skins. Yummmm..........I'm hungry!!!

  2. Dave,
    I been thinking I should email you to see how you fared with the hurricane. Glad you only had to deal with the rain. Having been in a hurricane before I know it is not fun, thankfully I had a grill to cook with.
