Surviving Ike

I think Josh said it best..."I almost prefer storms in the Panhandle!" The reason being is storms in the Panhandle of Texas (where we just moved from) come and go in a manner of hours. Hurricanes, on the other hand, come and go in a manner of weeks. There is the all the anticipatory tracking and preparing before the storm, the hold- up for days during the storm, and the then phew its over moment now lets see what we need to clean up and fix. College Station got very lucky. We felt some effects of Ike...lots of wind and rain (a section of our back fence blew down)...but we never lost power or our minds waiting it out. And, Josh was given Friday off to "prepare for the storm." (which in our house meant buying water, bread, batteries, and extra oreos.) With all that said, our house did have its own little hurricane excitement. Josh brought the plants in off the back patio. Well, in doing so, he brought in more then just the plants...
