Well,we've been without power since yesterday afternoon due to the remains of hurrican Ike sweeping though.It was unbelievable.We had up to 75 mph winds,trees are down all over,4 people died,several areas are looking at days with no power.
We lost a shutter,some window screens,many huge limbs came down. I've never seen anything like it.Thank god none of my family or friends were hurt as far as I know.I'm still trying to get into contact with some of them.
I can only imagine what it was like where the winds were double what they were here,along with massive rain and flooding.It makes you appreciate what a hurricane is really like that's for sure.
I took some pics I'll post later.I need to get my house and yard back to some sort of order.
It was scary,very scary.
