aftermath of Ike

well, Ike came thru, and we got......NOTHING!!! What? For real. We got zip. Now, mind you, I am thankful that we did not get what Galveston and the surrounding areas got. But we could have used a little more rain than we got. It rained for about 4 to 5 hours...a small, steady rain, and then....gone. Goodbye Ike. ~sigh~

I should not complain. My family that lives in that area are sitting at home with no power. However, they did not get the flood that surrounds them, and the damage they did sustain is managable. As for those around them, some did not fair so well. It is awful to see the destruction. And amazing at the same time. It is so crazy that they got all that powerful storm, and we got spit on. Amazing how God works the weather. And, last night, I stood in my driveway, looking up at the most amazing clear night with a beautiful full moon that lit the sky up. And it was perfect weather. I love still nights like that. I am so glad fall is coming!

Too funny--I've been lazy all my life, too, I'm quickly realizing. Off to go NOT think about vaacuming!
