Re: BBW new area code

Hi, Karen,

We just went through an area code change in the surrounding Houston area. There
was a grace period -- which was extended another 30 days -- in which either
number would get through. Then, Wham! No calls going to the old area code went
through, although a recording came on telling about the new code. Then that
stopped. Now, less than a year later, they are thinking of adding more area
codes. We seem to have to drift along on top of the wave.
