Hurricane Ike

by cdwise 18. September 2008 23:23

Many of you know I live in the Houston metro area. As of today we ore still without power and internet. We do have generator and sometimes I can get a cellular data connection. Many towers were damaged so that isn't quite as easy to get or normal since voice is getting priority over data on the cellular connections.

My husband has been walking around our neighborhood with a camera so I have used one of the default galleries from Project Seven to quickly parts them up at http://cheryldwise.com/albums/ike1/index.asp  if you are interested. Despite the Number of 40 foot plus trees down remarkably few houses were hit but it has taken a toll on own power lines.

We have been been lucky with the weather since Ike has passed with lows around 60 and highs around 80, may to continue until the power is back on throughout the area.

BTW, if you are wondering how I posted this and the galleries sans power my local Starbucks has power and they have opened their internet connection for free use.

Sorry to hear that Ike has taken quite a toll on your area.  Glad though that all are safe.

We finally got power back after 8.5 days though one of my kids schools is still not back in session and many of the street lights are still out.

There are still many people here who are without power but otherwise without serious damage.
