Houston made news yesterday, but not in a good way. We had a severe storm that caused flooding and blew out windows on skyscrapers downtown, making national news.

To those who have inquired and expressed concern we appreciate it! Everyone is fine here, but we did lose power and it is currently affecting our ability to operate, to communicate, and to ship and recieve.

We hope to be up and running normally very soon, but the disruption could affect some of our customers, depending on when systems are fully restored.

Please be patient, and thank you again for your concern.

Glad that everyone is safe, Bryan.
Hope that the city/county gets things squared away quickly so things can get back to normal sooner rather than later.

I just heard about Houston last night and immediately thought of you guys! Glad you are all safe and hopefully power will be restored quickly! I read you have some steamy weather coming in.

UPDATE: We have been advised by our building management that power is now restored. We are waiting until tomorrow to make sure power is stable before resuming normal operations.

We appreciate the well wishes, and the patience of anyone affected by our outage. It appears that two tornadoes were the cause of much of the devestation. And Houston doesn't normally get tornadoes. But we are living in a new normal in so many ways!

Glad to hear this. The weather can be so scary sometimes. As has been said before, man can tether neither time nor tide! We just have to ride it out and hope for the best.

Back in Bidness!

Thanks again to all in the pricescope community for your support. We are back to full capacity and catching up.

@MissGotRocks, yes weather can be scary. And we have not even entered hurricane season :shock:

I hear it will be a very busy hurricane season! It’s been a higher than normal strong storm season up here in Illinois. Glad to hear you are back in business!

rJust so y'all know how bad it was (and we were only without power for 24 hours here 50 miles West of downtown Houston); there are some areas only about 10 miles North of me that have been without power for SEVEN days!

Seems like Texas continues to get pounded with bad storms and tornados. :( Hope everyone stays safe out there.

Our son’s adopted family in Houston was without power and wifi for 5 days - luckily they had a generator keep things running in the meantime.

Then yesterday he was meant to fly Houston - Dallas - Raleigh when the tornado warning came through and closed DFW for hours. We had to rescramble and book a later flight from Houston - Raleigh instead. When he returned back to Houston for the flight some 6hrs later, the DFW bound flights were still sitting on the tarmac.

Hope everyone in Texas is safe.

Another scary storm moved through Houston yesterday from the north. It was very eery - I have never seen it that dark at mid-day. And I recently witnessed the total eclipse!

yep, and Bryan-College Station (on radar) looked like they were getting it too; fortunately, I am 'between' both places and we totally missed everything.
