We think the worst of Ike is over. It is windy but not as scary and with fewer gusts. Sebastian slept on an air mattress in our master closet and didn't emerge until around 9:30am. Abby and I slept most of the night in the downstairs guest room which was somewhat quiet. I only slept a little here and there. Our cable went out at 10pm last night and hasn't come back. The power is flickering but on. We had to turn our AC off because of the power fluxuations. Overall we were lucky that we were hit with the west side of the storm which was still totally scary. The tree in front of our house snapped and missed hitting my car by probably a couple of feet.
Now we are hanging out on the playroom with the kids. I am grateful for my iPhone which has let me stay connected even without cable and Internet. I'm looking forward to participating in naptime today. I wonder what the recovery will be like. How long will it take for things to get back to normal?
