    Can anyone get a call into the Houston area? I've been trying for hours. I thought the hurricane was still more than a day away.

    Circuits are busy. Took me forever to get a hold of my brother, and others here have reported the same problem. Sorry.

    My SIL is in Sealy. I talked to her this morning. We kept getting cut off but we were able to chat for a little while.

    My sister right outside of Baytown was able to call me last night on a land line but was unable to use her cell phone. I tried to call my other sister in Baytown but was unable to get through. They were both leaving last night. My sister Joyce is heading for her son's(I still think she will be too close for my comfort) and my sister Diane is heading to Dallas to stay with her daughter. I do have my nephew's number to get ahold of Joyce and her cell phone number. But I do not Have Holly's number to get ahold of Diane. But I feel Dallas should be safe!

    Keep trying everyone. It may take awhile.

    Still can't get through but heard from them via instant message. They are staying (in Houston):confused: Holy Cow! I sure don't get it but I pray they make it OK.
