we made a late decision to head on up to dallas. i'm in irving preparing for what i view as a "must win" game for the cowboys. from what i've heard so far, my town of Sour Lake got hit pretty hard (about 8 miles west of beaumont) but word from relatives, who've already returned, is that the house sustained "no damage". this is great news as the "dollar general" and "video store" half-a-mile away are "gone". thank you Jesus. hope all my fellow Cowboys fans and Texans are receiving similar news. Louisiannans as well. man, it could have been SO MUCH WORSE. may God bless all of you.
