Thank goodness our electricity is back on, but most of our neighbors are not so lucky. I cannot believe the damage here in my neighborhood from Ike. At least 5 houses (1 completely destroyed) had trees blown on (in) them and countless trees blown down and over streets. The house that was destroyed belongs to an elderly widow and she had just walked to the other end of the house. You could not even see her house under the tree. She was not hurt just shook up. That is just in our neighborhood. All over town has trees down on houses and streets. 6 of our school campuses have no power and SWEPCO says it might be Friday before they get it back up. From what I've seen on the local news stations, they haven't mentioned much about our city...oh that's right WE'RE NOT TYLER!!! Ok I have vented. LOL Hope everyone else is OK too.
I would post pics but I keep forgetting my camera when I go out.
