Ike aftermath

Well we ended up getting pretty battered early Saturday morning. About 10 big old oaks are now laying on the ground. One punched a hole in my roof and another is laying on the power lines.
We are all ok and that is what counts even though this is going to screw up my budget for a long time to come.

There are worse things.

Power is still off but I got the generator working finally, just got DSL back, which is why I am able to send this.

Gaslines lines are awful, as soon as someplace has gas cars lines up and they all have gas cans to fill.

I got smart and filled up Friday and this morning I was able to find a place where I only had to wait 30 minutes to fill up.

The day after only Walmart was open and had power. Yesterday Denny's got power and opened up so I took the family out to dinner.

I will post some pictures in a week or so when things get back to normal.
