    Flying out Sunday to Dallas. Let me know if anybody wants to meet up for coffee. I’m regrads to the training location. I think the BSA has a couple places in Dallas but the training on I’m at is in Westlake.

    Stayed in uptown before and all things equal will probably try and stay again, but am open to the other places if the house is much cheaper/nicer. Any positives/negatives about the other spots?

    Anyone else still without power? Lost a sizable amount of a cedar elm in my front yard. 40 ft branch came down in my front porch/roof. Luckily damage to the house is minimal.

    My old neighborhood in midway hollow was a wreck. Massive trees down everywhere. We had a branch crash an iron fence, but I was able to fix it. Really fucked some people up.

    Initial report was one dead (not sure if confirmed)

    Uptown a bit of a mess but sounds like other areas got a lot more damage. Went for a walk through State Thomas this evening didnt seem too bad outside a few medium sized trees being down.

    I fell asleep for a nap around noon. Woke up, heard storms, fell back asleep. Finally woke up around 2 and it was clear and sunny. I had a tailgate tent set up in the backyard that is now broken. :sad:

    They live large at their boarders. Both indoor and outdoor play areas and they run with the pack 10 hours a day. They generally sleep for 48 hours straight when they come home except for eating, pissing, and shitting breaks.
