Aww you’re awesome DMM <3 we’re good! Our power was turned back on Tuesday afternoon so we went about 2 days without, and thankfully it was in the 70s and 80s here. Texas had to call in power companies from out of state to help with clearing all the trees away and repairing/replacing all the wires. Our neighborhood was flooded with trucks from Alabama Power and they did an amazing job. Dallas is really ill-prepared for emergencies, and it’s frightening to see just how quickly things can slip away! I just keep trying to remember that we are safe and have clean air and water and it could be so much worse. I’m definitely thinking I misjudged preppers though!

Thanks DMM! Luckily the house seems ok. It’s heartening to see so many neighbors out helping each other too. It’s just so sad to see all the tree carnage everywhere.

Power is totally out where I am, and won’t be back on until tomorrow. Half of my huge tree fell on our house too :/ it could have been worse though...just reading a crane fell through an apartment complex downtown and gutted it, with at least one casualty. I’ve never seen a storm like this before.

WOW. L. Francis Cissna is resigning as Director of USCIS, reportedly pushed out by Stephen Miller for not being cruel enough. They want to replace him with Ken Cuccinelli…aka the dude who wanted to ban oral sex in VA. My only hope is that where Cissna actually has a brain and therefore his tightening of the screws were subtle and effective, Cuccinelli or whomever they pick will be too much of a dumpster fire to get anything passed. Otherwise, this seems like it’s pretty much the beginning of the end for legal immigration.

Cissna has been loyal to Trump, and his policy directives have been vindictive and anti-immigrant. Glad to see it got him nowhere.
