I agree, I would take -45 over a hurricane any day.

My family and my Axioms are present and accounted for. I live about 7 miles from Galveston Bay in Pasadena and it was wild last Friday night/Saturday morning. I boarded up all of our windows and we rode out the storm in the house. The house is only 5 years old and has hurricane clips on the roof so it is a pretty safe structure. The wind really picked up about 11:30 p.m. on Friday and blew at hurricane strength for about 8 hours (except for the 40 minutes or so when the eye passed over us). Thankfully this all happened when the kids were asleep. We lost power for 3 days but it is a small price to pay for us to pay, as my family, house, roof and fence are all intact. The Houston area has about 50% of its residents without electricity at the moment. I feel for those that had houses in Galveston and Bolivar as many in those areas fared much worse. My prayers go out to those in the area who lost family members. Thanks for asking about the Texas contingent.

Wow! I'm sure you were white-knuckled the whole time. And props to those kids for snoozing through it. Was the rest of your neighborhood as lucky as you?

It helped that I live in a smaller one story house surrounded by larger two story houses. The wind was not getting any direct shots on my house and fence. There was a lot of roof and fence damage in my neighborhood. A gasoline station about 3 miles from my house was completely flattened. I have not taken any pictures yet. The wait for gasoline on Monday was about 45 minutes, but I heard of two hour waits at some locations.
