Do You Have Any Battery-Powered Fans?
This is the number one question for the past several days at REI where the temperatures have begun to increase again after Hurricane Ike blasted through about ten days ago. About one-third of Houstonians still have no electricity and, thus, no air conditioning. Fans, lanterns, fuel, and batteries have become very popular and very scarce throughout the city in recent days. We have heard reports that some areas will not have power for at least two more weeks.
