I Survived Ike

Hello BOTCers, it's me, TB.  I would like to let you all know that I have survived Hurricane Ike.  For those of you who haven't experienced a hurricane before, it's kind of like being in a tornado that lasts for six hours.  We made it through and actually got our power back, although more than 1.5 million customers (that's more like 4 million people total) are still without power.  This Internet access is also temporary.

Today I swung by my campus, the University of Houston, and it looks like a war zone.  Well, a war zone in which the combatants were trees.  The administration has decided we are starting class tomorrow, although class attendance is non-mandatory.  Which brought to mind the question in the poll below.

Anyway, I'm back and should be able to resume semi-normal posting soon.  Big thanks to Centerpoint Energy for getting the power back on at my house so I can watch the K-State/Louisville game Wednesday night.  Mucho props to Panjandrum for keeping things going around here in my absence, and to all of you readers for sticking around.
