Visiting Texas: Winter Storms on the Gulf Coast + Resources

Butterflies, this has been one stressful week thanks to winter storms Uri and Viola. We’ve been having extreme winter conditions with icy roads, no electricity, burst water pipes and no running water. It’s actually feeling a lot like Hurricane Ike all over again. Ike happened about two years prior to me starting Butterfly LifeStyle back in 2008, but let me tell you it was a miserable time for us. We were without electricity for two weeks after Ike. 

More recent than Ike was Hurricane Harvey which was also pretty bad, it rained nonstop for like five days...the whole city was flooded. Anyway, if this is a prelude to what this year’s hurricane season will be like I strongly suggest everyone gets prepared. Also, here are some resources for anyone who may need help recovering from the impact of the winter storms here in Texas:

1) Dial 2-1-1 or 3-1-1
3) RedCross
4) Houston Area Shelters
5) Houston Food Bank
6) Other Houston Recovery Resources via the Houston Chronicle
