WE MADE IT!
We made it through Ike! We lost power yesterday about 1:30 and it didn't come back on till 8:30 or so last night. We played cards, read and had some great family time! We even had a picnic on the floor! The good thing about where we live is we have natural gas, so I could still cook and we still had the water. I would say the wind gusts got to around 60 mph, they were bad, we really aren't' sure what they were. We did loose 1/2 of our barn, the feed room half. So during the storm we were out there picking up feed and getting panels around it so the horses wouldn't get in there. The horses thankfully were not up in the barn at the time it happened. Thank goodness! We also have numerous branches, limbs all over the place. Hubby just called me into the den and on the news it was saying Troup was hit pretty hard, tons of huge trees down and Harry's Building Supply got it's roof torn right off. Thankfully none of the limbs, roofs had hit any other people, homes, etc. We were really blessed that it was just our barn and not worse. It is such a scary thing when you think about it. God sure did protect us and our animals. I'm glad to start hearing from you all that was in the path of Ike. Praying that everyone is safe and look forward to catching up with you all. We are planning on going to 2nd service this morning, we have ALOT to be thankful for. We also need to lift up all the many people that Ike affected.
