I’ve been quiet on here for the last week or two, and I wanted to check in.
Those of you who are familiar might remember I’m in College Station, Texas, which is about an hour and a half north of Houston. Harvey shut things down around here for about a week and I had my sister, her husband, and her 3 month old staying with me from Houston. With my 9 month old, it was a week built around baby schedules and cooking.
Good news, though. Everything is perfectly fine here. We ended up being the very edge of “dry” civilization and the logistic point for Houston response. So no real damage this far out. My family is back in Houston and doing fine; their house didn’t flood at all and they got out quite early.
In other news, I’ve finished my final data collection for my dissertation, which was the other reason I went dark. (It’s not easy running 2-3 participants a day with 3 hour shifts). I’m in data analysis and writing mode and have about 85 pages of dissertation ready. After I finish this bit and get its paper written, I should be at around 110-120 pages before I’m finished.
Now all I need to do is get a draft ready in the next week-and-a-half.
