You might want to video it before disposing and put an estimated value on it. Insurance or FEMA may pay for it. I lost a big freezer full once and it came to about 4200 bucks.

Im not sure on the disposal but they might pay that too. Im glad you are ok. Folks close to you fair poorly!

I am very lucky...and grateful! 2 streets behind me... was not lucky at all.

Deer season is coming up...so not that upset with meat loss (except my fish ).

I just have no idea how to dispose in the city with no trash service working.

I'm not too sure I'd trust that site. It's still showing a bunch of roads closed around my area (big roads like 99 and such) that are wide open and cleaned up. It has not been kept up to date very well... And for instance 99 has been open since yesterday morning. When I checked it a few minutes ago (looking for info on the 1960 route for you guys, it still showed 99 AND 59 to still be closed. They've been open for almost 3 days...

See if a neighbor has space in a freezer until trash resumes or when you leave pack it up and put in a trash at gas station or fast food joint.

If you can't get it refrozen somehow or disposed of, I'd go ahead and burn it - if you can do that safely in your back yard. If any city official complained, I'd tell him he could either take whatever I hadn't burned yet and dispose of it for me, or he can pound sand. It's not a normal situation. You shouldn't have to live with rotting meat in your freezer and fridge for days on end.

Find some of the people that support throwing paint on people wearing fur and show them how it feels.

Or find a dumpster you can use.

I have burned food in the past, and did not have a problem just as long as you tend to it and keep under control.

Just got a text from my daughter that she heard the north bound feeder on 59 is open. I'm about to leave Humble, and will check it out and report. Y'all keep your fingers crossed!

For those who want to get in to southern Jefferson county and Orange county you can come up through Cameron, LA. That route is open and passable in cars I heard first hand this afternoon.

Saw two awesome things on the way home this evening... one was all the big cranes and trucks out on the 59 main lanes at the San Jac. bridge North bound moving all those HUUUUGE concrete dividers that used to separate the north and south bound lanes and the railroad bridge just east of the highway at the river, whole sections of the bridge were nothing but the steel rails!! The whole bridge spans were GONE!!

The other thing I saw was a convoy a good mile or more long of 18 wheelers escorted by DPS tahoe's headed north up 59... Some serious mass efforts going on to help each other!! Yes, this is TEXAS and TEXANS at their best... and all those from around the country, especially our Cajun brothers n sisters all out in force to lend a hand... yea, America is still America! Praise God.

I would bet if you triple bag it.. it would be okay. Is the freezer trashed? If not I would leave it open and unplugged for a couple days if possible.
Glad to hear that all is well.

Back from my Texas Floodplain Management Association (TFMA) . Very interesting.

A few cancellations but some good topics.

41.88" fell in Dickinson in 3 days breaking the 3 day record held in Alabama (I believe it was about 34").

Some of the detention ponds on southeast Texas were designed incorrectly.

There is now talk to include non FIRM flood areas in FEMA maps along with adding Zone E to these maps for erosion.

I ll get back with you in the next few days as I just got back home.

Prayers sent

FYI the rainbow bridge in Bridge City is closed and they are diverting traffic on the Veterans bridge. It's taking 2 hours or so to get across.
