David Howarth file

David Howarth of Lake Jackson says his household could have been better prepared for the winter storm that hit last weekend.

Thinking back on the week’s winter storm, Lake Jackson resident David Howarth and his wife consider themselves among the fortunate ones.

“We never lost power,” Howarth said. “We had a couple problems when water wouldn’t come out of the spigot but … nothing that lasted longer than an hour or two. Probably the biggest thing that caught us off guard was how many people were in the grocery stores loading up and hoarding the food.”
