We’re Fine

I hate to sound like a drama queen, but that was SCARY! Sitting in your house being afraid that your windows are about to shatter or that a tree is going to fall on you is not a fun feeling.

Our area was hit hard, even as far inland as we are. Only a little flooding around creeks and low lying intersections occurred, but we are a heavily wooded area. Which is the main problem around here. Trees are laying on houses. Trees fell on vehicles, smashing them. There are trees laying on power lines, and trees blocking the roads.

Luckily, that is all being cleared away. As soon as it was safe, guys were outside with their chainsaws, cutting up trees so that they could be pulled out of the way. Everyone was out in the street, being more neighborly than they ever had been previously, I’m sure. Everyone came together to help each other out.

We were so blessed. Our home is fine. Our yard is a mess, but it is nothing in comparison to others. The top of one of our pine trees came off and landed in the back yard, several yards from the house.

We drove around the neighborhood the day after the storm and it was devastating to look at. No one around here has ever experienced such a disaster. It’s overwhelming to say the least.

I have so much to say about the hurricane and the effects of it, but Ike was big and took his time, and so shall I. There is a lot to write about.
