We headed out Thursday morning to Louisiana to visit family while Ike decided to visit our house in League City, TX. It has been nice catching up with everyone, but watching the news has been very painfull. We really worried about the house, business and friends. Also how bad the weather would get here. Happy to report:
1. Weather did not get too bad here in Roanoke, LA. Strong wind and a little power outtage for @ 4 hours.
2. The only damage that we know of so far to our house is a tree in the back yard and our fence are both down.
3. The business appears to be in great shape.
4. Friends have so far reported in and are doing well and also have not much damage.
Overall we have been very blessed. Thank you to all who have been thinking and praying for us.
Now we wait to find out when we can return and pick up the pieces.

Note: Some of you suggested that I name my bike Ike. I think I will do that as a reminder of how big that bugger was and how lucky we were. Thanks again!

Sorry about the tree and the fence, but glad Ike spared you anything worse.

Love "Ike the Bike," it's a great name! (OK, we have "Fran the Van" so I'm a bit partial to rhyming names).
