Cypress, TX pool owners: I'm curious if the high wind storms we had yesterday caused any problems with your pool. For the first time in 26 years in this house, we gathered humans and pets in the bathroom. A little after 7am, I saw the purple area on the radar headed our way. When the trees started waving and twisting like mad, I decided it was time to take shelter. We didn't have hail like last weekend, but I heard later the winds were moving about 60 MPH. It was nothing like Ike, in that it lasted maybe 10 minutes. But it was enough to bring down a number of power lines, stoplight cables, and trees. All I could think about was the pool, but she was fine. Not sure how the gunite could have been impacted. I haven't heard any talk of funnels in the area, and I certainly didn't hear the train sound I often heard living in north Texas and the Panhandle.
Our house had no damage, but in our neighborhood, at least 2 homes had trees fall on the houses. And many of us were out of power longer than comfortable. Our power was out 18 hours raising concerns for freezer goods and making sleep sticky and warm. The trees of our neighbor across the street fell and blocked the street for a good while. Luckily no structural damage.
We hope all our Cypress friends are well and escaped any property damage! Take care! Suz.
