The Red Telephone

At My Ranchburger in Houston: here is our vintage Southwestern Bell telephone that kept us in touch with the outside world during Hurricane Ike and following, when power outages hit the entire Texas Gulf Coast. Doesn't she look sassy? Couldn't you just imagine putting in a call to Russia from the White House?

You can see our modern, digital wireless phone in the background. It will not work without electricity but Tall Husband was undaunted; he simply hooked up our vintage Southwestern Bell telephone and we had a land line. Thanks to At&T we never lost phone service. Both our AT&T land lines and cell phones stayed with us through Hurricane Ike and subsequent power outages.

Hurricane Ike update:
We now have water and electricity at My Ranchburger! We are giddy with power. We have won the electricity lottery! No Internet (Comcast) yet, so I am mooching Internet connections from friends who have such luxuries.
