Well, life is now back to normal. We finally got internet and cable back yesterday. It has been almost a month... So, this is the reason for absolutely no posts for some time!
We were so much luckier than others in our area. We had some minor damages... But we are safe and still have our home! I hope that anyone reading this that was within the reaches of Ike faired as well as we did.
We did not evacuate until Saturday afternoon after the storm. The only reason we evacuated was Eric was recovering from bronchitis and was really having a tough time in the heat.
The storm was an awesome sight. It was scary... But the sheer power of what was happening was awe inspiring. Don't let the news reports of what a hurricane looks like fool you. They all show the wind blowing extremely hard, but straight... All in one direction. We stood on the porch at our house during the wee hours of the morning while the storm was at its worst. I felt like I was in a washing machine! The wind was churning like the water in my washing machine!
We did get some damage to some of our electronic equipment due to power surges. My scanner/printer was one of the things that suffered! So, I will start getting some pictures taken of projects I have done since the storm to post!
