Hurricane Ike-Update #9

(Posting via battery power on the computer. The Internet is working)

My Lovely Bride and I spent most of of yesterday looking for supplies for our return to the Gulf Coast. Our neighbor called and said we had some roof damage, fences blown down, damage to our house's gables, trees and bushes knocked down and blown over. There is no power, water or gas (natural) in the area.

We found a generator at about midnight and bought a new 60 gallon ice chest to bring back ice for the neighborhood. We also loaded up on gas for the generator, bought some water and food for us and our neighbors.

We are going to get a few hours sleep before we head back. Things are going to be hairy for a while but I know we can get through it.
