I am certain that Roy and Sylvia are fine. I will check on Mamie, Jerry and Brenda tomorrow.

We got power back at 6:30 on the day of the hurricane then lost it again at 4:15 the next day due to a cold front pushing through. The cold front was worse than the hurricane for us. We were flooded in until 6 pm yesterday. We had power once again today at 1pm. Funny the things you take for granted, like a hot shower...

I will post links to pictures later on of our street yesterday. It was no fun...at all. Water came 2/3 way up our driveway, the absolute highest we have ever seen it. I figure the debris from Ike had many of the storm drains plugged but it came down all at once.
