Ike Update

Today I had to stand in line to get into the grocery store.  The
shelves were pretty bare.  There was no milk or eggs.  But I was able
to go to WalMart to get milk.  You were allowed to only buy one bag of ice at a time.

Today is Tuesday, but I bought the Sunday paper today.  I wanted the front page for a scrapbook.  The headline reads: Night of Fury, Days of Misery.  The scariest part of this storm for me was that it came in the dead of night.  I would prefer to see disaster coming! 

I talked to my cousin, Wayne, yesterday.  They made it through the storm safely, but they still don't have power. 

The schools have shut down for the rest of the week.  We'll see if they can go back on Monday.

My evacuees, Daniel and Heidi, have returned to the apartment today.  Before they left Heidi found a turtle that had been injured in the storm.  She is healing the turtle because that's the kind of girl she is!

There are still millions without power.  I will never take electricity for granted again!

We are blessed!
