It looks like the worst is over here at my house. Ike knocked some branches out of the neighbors trees and out of the pecan trees in our yard and knocked over a big beautiful Redbud tree down the street. Trees are down all over the county and the county workers are out checking on people and moving the trees off roads etc. The southern part of the county lost electricity but we didn’t. Mom was glad because she loves her AC! Silly mom went and bought a battery powered fan just in case…….
Area churches are hosting people who came here to get away from the worst part of Ike. I know they are anxious about their homes and any family that stayed down there.
I will know more about what went on in the county tomorrow. Dad has to go out tonight at midnight and work till noon tomorrow. All the deputies are working 12 hour shifts for a couple of days.
We are praying and keeping paws crossed for all the people hurt in any way by Ike.
