The police are out…

I just turned on my scanner and am currently scanning all of Ft Bend County’s law enforcement/EMS (including Cities of Missouri City, Stafford, Sugarland, et al), all of Harris Co. Sherrif’s Office, all of the various municipalities around Houston/Harris County (including Webster, Clear Lake, etc..), Houston Police, Houston Fire/EMS, and so on… Everyone appears to be out and about and working. Communications are still good.

I’ll, hopefully, be putting a live feed of the scanner onto the internet via shoutcast as soon as I can, but to do so I need two crucial pieces of equipment. I’m in dire need of a 9v DC adapter, and a standard headphone-plug male-male cord to interface the scanner with the sound card. If anyone can provide these things and feels like delivering them to the Misson Bend area (well, just barely south of there, Hwy 6 and Bissonnett), I’d greatly appreciate it. Comment, or visit the contact form at my website (note, it’s a two-step process to e-mail me. You’ll need to confirm a bounce message for your e-mail to be delivered). I’d procure these items, myself, but 1) I’m flat broke, and 2) There isn’t a radio shack that’s going to be open for several days. heh.

On the upshot of the lack of storm in Houston, I’ll be able to watch the NASCAR race, this weekend.

I hope our friends in New Orleans are fairing as well as we are, tonight.

    That is good. Unfortunately, we heard reports of looting and vandalism on West Beach in Galveston mid-day yesterday. I haven’t told my dad that, he has a house down there. Those people are heartless and evil.

    Living in the Galleria area. Not much damage here. Got out a bit earlier and looked around. Anyone know of any places open? bar, food, etc?
