Neighbor's Tree Damage
We met Ike last night. He was not a very nice dude. All was well until we lost electricity at 1AM Saturday morning. We gathered our flashlights and moved ourselves into the guest room so we could be right next to the babies, just in case. The winds started to pick up at about 2:30am and neither of us were able to sleep all night. The wind was whipping around the house and trees, causing the house to creak, and pelt the windows with rain. The eye wall hit us hard at about 6AM while we fed the babies by candlelight. It was so dark outside we could not even see the trees out of the window.
Trees Down On The Road Behind Us
We tried to stay home until power came back on, but the air was so still and humid afterwards that, even with the windows open, we were all sweating like crazy and the babies were so cranky. So we packed up the car and loaded the babies to head to Austin to stay with my sister. Oh, how nice to have A/C and a warm meal. My mema and pepa are in Austin as well and are unsure of the condition of their home. My mom stayed in Texas City and had no damage to her home, except for a few fallen tree branches.
