How do you hunker down??

Here are some pictures before Ike tore through Galveston and Houston.

Cloud pictures throughout the day:











Hunkering down... (the calm before the storm)





Enjoying the cooler weather and wind with a little kite flying. Our whole street was outside! I guess we all weren't sure when we would be able to come back out.







Luckily, we all made it through the storm! We had no damage to our house. A few of our plants/trees didn't make it and we didn't have power from 9:00pm Friday night to 5:00 pm on Saturday. My parents in Cy-Fair had no power or water until Sunday evening and they lost their outdoor kitchen. Travis' mom and dad had fence damage, tree limbs down, and roof damage, but they kept power through the whole storm.We hope that everyone made it through like we did. We are praying for the people who lost everything.

We are waiting for news on the beachhouse in Bolivar and closely watching aerial views from the news channels.

I can't find a picture of the beachhouse but you can look back at our last visit during the 4th of July.

Glad you guys made it through. Seems like it was typical wind and water damage for the most part.
