That Ike

A "wind event" occurred here in Columbus on Sunday afternoon and evening, the tail end of Ike that no one expected would cause such mayhem. Our little town suffered many, many fallen trees and limbs, such as the one above from our yard. This is the same hackberry tree that dropped a huge limb over the winter. Once again, we were lucky that it didn't hit our cars or house. It did take down the power lines, though, and we expect to have power restored on Thursday. Thank goodness our landlord lent us a generator, so we have a working refrigerator and computer. What else do we need?

In a way OH NO!
And in another way, I'm glad that no one was hurt and that nothing was damaged.

Yikes, Ser! I am glad the branch fell away from your house and that everyone is ok!

It was nice to hear all the exciting news from Luke on the phone the other day! I remember big snow storms when you kids were small and it feeling a little like a vacation. It was nice and quiet and you couldn't do the things you normally do. Hope you all are having a nice vacation!!!!
