Finally have the internet back. Things are still struggling to get back to normal around here. Two weeks after Hurricane Ike there are still people without power, trees down everywhere, traffic lights out, stores closed, curfews, schools closed, and general confusion. Our thoughts and prayers go out to those who lost so much, especially the Galveston residents. Many people can comprehend what a hurricane can do to physical structures after seeing the images on TV. By many _cannot_ comprehend what hurricanes do to communities and families. There is no insurance for that.

We were very fortunate. Along with being blessed with good health and a good vehicle to evacuate in, and family to stay with, and great kids who can weather 9 hours in a truck... we were also blessed with minimal damage to the house and power being restored very quickly.

We spent a few days cleaning up and helping our neighbors clean up. Neo is getting a good lesson in helping his community. We still have a small tree leaning on the house, but we hope to talk to the neighbors and get that cleared up soon.

Neo's school finally started back up yesterday. I think he was ready to get back to some normalcy. He's also anxiously awaiting his birthday (I'll post again with some details about that).

Thanks to Vince, Amy, Ethan, and Kyle for their hospitality and help. We really appreciate it.

A couple of pictures of the minor damage we took are here.
