after ike

We made it through our first Texas hurricane.  It was a pretty long and crazy night with lots of wind and rain.  We are have been with out power since about 3am this morning.  Some of our neighbors thankfully have power and have invited us to hang out part of today.  

The house did not have any damage.  We lost a fence that also knocked out the water for several house.  Lots of trees in the area and down, but we only lost a few small branches.  

We are still hearing stories about other parts of Houston, many that sustained much more serious damage.  

We are grateful to be safe.


  1. I am glad to hear that you are safe. I have been thinking of you guys hoping that everything was fine for you.

  2. Hurricanes are so foreign to me so it has been interesting to read your little updates. We are happy that things went OK for you and your family.

  3. Thank goodness you are all safe and that your home was spared! What a blessing!!!
