Power was restored to my neighborhood around 3:30 p.m. today. I was in the shower at the time, soap in my eyes and shampoo in my hair, when I heard the security system screetch like a banshee. It took me a split second to figure out what was going on. Sooo very happy about that.
And my house … “She’s a brick house // she’s mighty mightay…” Our 75-year old girl stared down Ike with only the loss of a piece of gutter, a few shingles, a part of a small tree, and a strip of siding off the big garage. After surveying the damage in my neighborhood, I’m grateful we were basically unscathed. There are a lot of old, tall trees here in Idylwood and quite a few of them ended up on top of houses or garages or in the street. The sound of chain saws buzzing filled the air this morning like the droning of a hundred angry bees.
Sophia home now!
