Live from Houston: Late Friday Night

The winds have picked – maybe 20-30mph sustained winds, which is not bad, considering. But there was just a big gust that blew over something like a potted plant because we were just surprised by a big crash. We are trying to sleep downstairs – though we missed the brunt of the storm I still feel safer staying downstairs. I’ve left a couple of lights on and the TV news is still going but the volume is down. My wife is on the couch, and I was, until that last gust, curled in on over-sized stuffed chair with an ottoman. I’m going back to try and get a little sleep.

The old joints of the house
cracked in the gale but the house
held around the bass chimney.

– Alan Dugan, Winter Gale
