although we are 1008 miles from Galveston


Hurricane Ike somehow has managed to "play" in Louisville. He came dashing through our fair city around 11 a.m. and by the time he left, he left over 301,000 homes without power, over 5000 lines down, 6 out of 8 police stations without power, and so forth. We (who almost never lose power) were among the first to be "attacked." They are currently saying that it could be up to fourteen days before all power is restored. (And don't forget, we are having the Ryder Cup here starting today.) Schools are out and groceries, gas stations and businesses have been closed. (I will be heading to LifeWay shortly to see if we might finally have power there.)



However, we are blessed. The weather has been cool (with a nice "breeze".) We were able to evacuate all our food to my mother-in-laws fridge and freezer (and my fridge has never been cleaner!), we have had plenty of lantern light, and Jessi has spent the last two evenings reading to Jonathan...just like Little House on the Prairie! (We were laughing yesterday as we drove down the street because there were actually children outside playing instead of inside playing video games and watching tv.)



Anyhow, I hope all of you all are well and safe! Blessings!

Oh, been there, done that, never going back! At least you are having nice weather and you had a place to take all your food to. Hopefully you'll be back to the 21st century soon!

My Creative Counterpart post is up if you want to read/join in!

I'm glad you have such a great attitude under the circumstances! You guys are SO lucky... The Ryder Cup? I hope it doesn't affect them. Louisville seems to be the place to live. But by the sounds of it, Michigan is the place to live these days! :) Enjoy this time and know I'm praying for you all!
Love you,
Angie xoxo

You look like you could live in Houston. So sorry right when you take your break from work to get things under control at home that you have to deal with this. I guess God does have a sense of humor sometimes. I pray you are all okay. We are all fine but still without power and phone, etc. I found a hotspot and am soaking all the tech stuff up before I have to head home again. You take care. Love, Annette
