Today was the first day that the Combustible Dust Policy Institute, located in the eye of the hurricane in Santa Fe, Texas, has been able to get back to business when electrical power was restored by the hardworking crews and contractors of Center Point Energy . Luckily the 110 mph winds did not cause any major damage here on Sandy Lane, just plenty of frayed nerves and thankful that our prayers were answered that the storm didn't turn into a Cat 3.
Prior to tracking combustible dust fires and explosions in the manufacturing sector, Google Maps were also utilized to track maritime vessel traffic in the Houston-Texas City-Galveston area. Just thought I'd provide visitors here on this site a link to a birds-eye view of shipping traffic waiting to enter the local ports. Currently the Houston Ship Channel has reopened with restrictions and as soon as all the navigational aids are restored global trade will return back to normal here in this neck of the woods.
