So long, Ike...
Well, God showed us mercy, and we are, as always, grateful to Him.  Ike passed to our east---just barely. As a result, we had lots of wind and rain, but no real damage.  Just some tree litter. Frankly, most of the debris are old dead limbs that needed to come down anyway.  Of course, the rain was a blessing.
 
Thank you, God, for sparing our lives as well as maintaining our comfort by sparing our property.  Our prayers are with those less fortunate than us.

Yikes!
I find it interesting that with the God-hammer storm, Ike, pounding hisIke way straight to my home, there's a new phrase popping up. From encyclopedia.com: INTEGRATED KINETIC ENERGY (IKE): "The maximum sustained surface wind speed and the Saffir-Simpson scale are poor indicators of a hurricane's destructive potential; integrated kinetic energy is more relevant to damage by wind, storm surge, and waves."
Ironic, no?
