Surviving Ike


Kendrick "slept like a baby," literally. He didn't wake up the entire night. He slept in the pack and play in our room. I woke up once or twice because the power had gone out and I was hot sleeping next to Cavett on our Tempurpedic mattress. Otherwise, I think Cavett would have slept through the whole thing too.


The power went out long about midnight and then came on at about 9 AM this morning. In the past 10 minutes it has flickered twice, but hasn't gone out again. As for property, the house looks fine. We did have a few bushes that were blown over and our pool is almost to overflowing. So, that means we got about 4" of rain. From what we are seeing on TV, the rest of Galveston and Houston did not fair as well.


Since we have power, we will be remaining in Houston.

Glad to hear that you faired it alright. After seeing the coverage this morning I wasn't expecting you to give such a positive report.
