Can you imagine being without electricity for months? That would change daily routines to say the least. About eighty percent of the power has been restored in Puerto Rico after last year's monster hurricane, and they have East Texas utility workers to thank for some of that.
I was taking a look around Facebook when I noticed my cousin, Richard Harvey, Jr. (No relation to Hurricane Harvey) when I saw how bad the water was, even north in The Woodlands.
