Ike was here…

Ike blew threw here last week, and lots of folks are still feeling the effects of it.  Yarbs and Josephine still don’t have power!  Which totally stinks for them.  They are bunking up here with us – we have lots of room and power!

What happened at our house:

During the storm…

Leaning tree…

Really leaning tree…

Boom working in the back yard…

Our rubbish and debris…

Down our street…

Debris in our neighborhood…

Uh oh – tree down…

Really big tree down….

I am just really thankful that we had no structural damage to our house and that we all stayed safe!  At least now I have my first Houston hurricane under my belt… I just hope there is not a repeat performance any time soon!

  1. If you note the picture of Boom working in the back yard and the absence of Tingaling. There was a feeling that the mosquitos were just too fierce and that there would be no way to wash bug spray off without water so Tingaling made the command call to ride out the clean up in her craft room doing decoupage (sp). Every once in a while she would yell down “Boom I can hear you working out there. Sounds tough.”
    RuRu determined that she would be most useful as Tingaling’s apprentice sleeping by her feet.

  2. I am so over the no-electricity thing! Thanks for letting us stay with you!
