Shika, when a hurricane hits or tropical depression, it’s something we can plan for. The year Ike hit, I packed up my computer and headed to Dallas for a few days until I got the all clear from the plant to go back. During, the tropical depression, I worked from home.
The year Ike hit, there was a winter storm front going through the day my Boss and I were packing it in for the Christmas holidays. We did go to work for a planned half day, which naturally, was just about when the storm just starting to hit the Pasadena area. I had to stop at Macy’s on the way home and when I got out, there was already a couple of inches of heavy wet snow on my windshield. I cleaned it off and decided that I was going to avoid the overpasses on the way home. As I headed south along Highway 3, the snow fall began to thin out until it eventually stopped altogether.
Eventually we did get about 2 inches or so in the League City area, but Pasadena and some other points north of Houston got 6 or more inches. Of course, it all melted before we got to Christmas Eve even.
