Aftermath of Hurricane Ike

Filed under: Hurricane — by Donna Ritter @ 6:18 pm

Well, Hurricane Ike was a bit more destructive than we thought. We lost power for almost 5 days, there was no gas or food to be had and we lost most of our fence including a tree that fell across our fence onto a neighbor’s garage.

We did have fun playing board games and cards by candlelight, but that gets very old after 2 days. Luckily the weather had cooled off somewhat, so we could sleep without air conditioner. It is amazing what creature comforts we take for granted!

When we said grace every night, we thanked God that we were so lucky. Some of the areas around here are very flooded. They won’t let residents back on to Galveston Island yet – they can go visit to see the damage, but have to be off by 6:00.

Maybe next time we should consider evacuating J.
