Hurricane Ike has caused some major damage. Some of that damage caused our power to go out like everyone else in Huntsville. We woke up at 6 am Saturday with no power and haven't had any since. Ty has a generator in his work truck that we used for our ice box...(it looks funny to type that but that's what I've always called it!) so our food wouldn't spoil. However, he had to go to work Wednesday. So I packed up our freezer goods and came to Jewett. I have been hanging out with my sister for the past couple of days.
I didn't realize how much we depend on ELECTRICITY. No hot water for showers, no television, no lights at night, no microwave, no computer, no anything pretty much. School is closed this week and they are supposed to make a decision on Saturday about next week. I don't think I can go to work with no power and no shower! But we'll see!
I am SO thankful that a tree didn't fall on our house. Some of our neighbors weren't so lucky. I have been thinking "GEEZE! I NEED ELECTRICITY! I NEED A SHOWER! BLAH BLAH BLAH!" And then I think about those people from Galveston who don't even have a house to go home to. Compared to that, no power seems so minor.
I'm praying for them.......please say a prayer for them and everyone else who has been hit by this storm.
