Whew, Katy appears to be fine… for all of you concerned about your loved ones. We shut down the computer to reserve battery power as our electricity is still out. In fact, we may be the only neighborhood in Katy without power… Hello, Reliant Energy…anybody out there? Our power shut down while skies were calm and still so whatever the issue is, they cannot blame it on Ike.

The winds raged all night long at gusts of 75 or so, intermittent lightning, and light rain. We are now getting a nice rain accompanied by winds that while still strong, are nowhere near last nights’ intensity. We were very lucky to have been so close to the eye of the storm and on the less dangerous side.

I hope that everyone else is okay. It does look pretty bad for Galveston and other parts of the city closer to the coast.

I looks like a great day to read a book or watch a movie… oh, yeah.. we have no power:). Take care all and thanks for visiting.
