My mom is in Houston with my brother's family in a town called Kingwood TX. She is supposed to fly back to SLC tomorrow. No dice.
There are no flights operating out of Houston so she's headed up to Austin to catch a flight out. Luckily, she booked with a Rapid Rewards ticket from Southwest. Otherwise the ticket would be around $800. Convenient.
Apparently, there is no electricity in Houston and according to reports told to my brother they won't have it back on for 2-3 WEEKS. And, to boot there is sewage in the streets due to fact that man holes are gushing with water.
I hope anyone else effected by this hurricane is ok.
Crazy. If you have stories, post them in the comments below!
