Our power went out a little while ago, so the candles are lit. We and our next door neighbors are on a different power grid than the rest of the neighborhood and the other three houses still have power. We usually keep our house pretty cool at night and thankfully Ike is bringing down temps so we shouldn’t roast without air conditioning. It is a good reminder of those who live without air conditioning and electricity in hotter climates.
The wind gusts are probably in the 30-40 mph range, but still no rain. We’re thinking that we should get a couple hours rest, as Ike probably wpon’t let us rest long, if at all.
We expected to lose power, but hoped it wouldn’t happen this soon. And we hope it doesn’t remain out for long.
I’m blogging from my Blackberry, and need to turn it off to conserve its juice. Night night for now. Could be back soon.
