Hurricane Ike – Katy, Tx update 11:10 p.m. 9/12/08

September 13, 2008

Sorry I could not get through but have reserve battery power and an intermittent Internet service with my broadband card. We in the Northeast section of Grand Lakes lost our power 5 hours ago and I do not anticipate having it restored until after the storm passes. I understand that other parts of Katy are fine and I wish I knew where you live because our home is getting really hot about now:). Otherwise, we are fine.

At this hour, the wind has picked up to fairly strong gusts of about 25 miles per hour but nothing too crazy. I have included photos I took prior to nightfall. I will say this, hurricanes create terrific skies! Everyone on my street is sweating it out and we hope that all of you out there with electricity will remember us and let us borrow ice tomorrow:).

I will most likely be up all night because it is HOT in here and will try to keep up my post as the evening and morning progresses. I thank all of you who have stopped by to view my blog and appreciate your thoughts and prayers for Katy and Houston, TX.

Great skies before the storm
