And Now, the Aftermath

Well, we managed to make it through Hurricane Ike. We lost power at our hotel at about 1:30 a.m., but amazingly, it came back on around 6:30 a.m. We've been amazingly lucky with that. The IHOP in front of the hotel was actually open yesterday afternoon, so we went and ate the only food being served - pancakes, sausage and eggs.

Mom's dog, Tipper, hates thunderstorms. Fortunately, there wasn't much thunder associated with Ike. However, the winds howled loudly, and the rain poured. I thought the dog might have a nervous breakdown or a heart attack. She kept scraping the door to her pen and breathing heavily. But she made it.

We're all fine. We talked to a friend of ours who stayed in Angleton, and she said our house looked all right. Just some limbs down and no power.

We're hoping to go home tomorrow.
