After Ike ... my power is back on

Hi there

So it was a long weekend and into the week. I rode out the storm at home, and we did get hit pretty directly. No real damage unless you count tree branches and such. We got power back last night. Yes! And it was a nice surprise to find my internet service is also up.

My favorite things about our neighborhood having power back:
  1. Hot food
  2. Cold drinks
  3. Working lights
  4. Air conditioning
  5. Refrigerator
  6. Clothes washer/dryer
  7. Traffic signals
  8. Grocery stores with food
  9. Gas stations with gas
  10. Hot running water
I hope to get back into blogging soon. Missed y'all!

Take care & God bless

I'm glad you weathered the storm. Welcome back!

Congrats! I have grandparents in Houston, and they eventually left after the storm passed through because they were so tired of living without power.

Welcome back on. I'm back too, from being away. I'll get around to blogging about it soon.

Hi all

Thanks for the welcomes. To me, the most welcome thing in the picture was electricity ... or maybe fresh drinking water ... ;)

Ah, life in hurricane country. Slowly approaching normality again ...

Take care & God bless
