Hi from Nassau Bay, Texas, just down the street from Space Center Houston. We've been dealing with high water from Harvey here in the neighborhood.

With one exception, the utility companies have been doing yeoman's work keeping things working. In spite of two feet of water in our street and deeper elsewhere in the neighborhood, we've seen electric, gas and public works struggling to keep things working and they have been successful.

45 minute power outage. Request from public works to keep the sewer load down when they got down to one pump. They got us back to three. Cell phones data sometimes overloaded, but mostly working. We are grateful.

Also grateful to the big three local TV stations. They've been in 24/7 non-commercial storm mode since it began. Local CBS affiliate KHOU was flooded out of their studios. They came back using the facilities of a Dallas affiliate. Wow. They've been an important resource. Thank goodness we have an antenna.

I'll bet you've guessed by now who is missing from this post. Yep, the cable company, Comcast seems to be AWOL. Service outage since early Sunday morning. No visible presence in the neighborhood. A generic message on my account about the outage.

Sure glad we cut the cable. We miss the Internet service during the outage. But critical needs are met.
