Hurricane Ike – Latest Update…

Uhm, oops.

We drove back from New Orleans and thanks to no internet at my parent’s house, I didn’t come and update the blog. Sorry about that!

– Our house is fine. Some tree limbs down in the yard – not on the house – and lots of debris around. Otherwise, all is ok.
– However, our house is still without power, and we’re not expecting to get power back until this weekend. Today is day 12 with no power at our house.
– That means we’ve been staying at my parent’s house. Because I sort of like having power. And air conditioning. And the internet.
– My parents didn’t have internet for the first half of a day that we were here – but it is back now.
– Speaking of my parents, their house is also fine. They had a tree that hit their house (damaging shingles, but nothing more major), so it was removed the other day so that it didn’t actually fall on their house. A big oak tree — anyone need some wood?

We’re all doing well. It all could have been so much worse — and I have friends who do have it worse than we do. I’m thankful for how lucky we were. Sure, no power is inconvenient, and I miss sleeping in my own bed, but in the grand scheme of things it is not a big deal. Plus my mom is the hostess with the mostest – we are overwhelmed with my parents’ awesomeness!
