I went out today otherwise I would have just been glued to the TV all day. Now I get home and see frightening video of the mall a few blocks from my mother's house. Crossing my fingers that she is doing ok and that her house isn't getting flooded. Looks like Harlingen got a bad hit. :-/

UPDATE: It is noon and I still haven't heard anything. I know that most of Cameron County has no power. My mom has a cordless phone versus the old fashioned plug in the wall. I'm not sure what to do at this point other than wait. I can be patient today (sorta). If I don't hear anything by tomorrow, I'm going to have to come up with a plan.

UPDATE 2: Yay! I just heard from my mom. She is ok. The house lost some shingles and that is it. Whew. I'm so relieved. Now I can enjoy the rain.
