Don't like Ike

Well, just got my power back. I was right in the path of the storm. Houston has really pulled together. Just after the storm I went out with a detail of neighbors and we cut up the trees that had fallen across the road. Then yesterday we had a big neighborhood grilling party to use up all the meat in everyone’s freezers that would go bad.

I came off lightly, my fence was destroyed, I need a new roof, and one window. But altogether not too bad. Well the biggest hardship was to miss one entire weekend worth of football.

We still have a lot of people with no power, and FEMA is only now starting to set up distribution centers. CIO for now.
