Hurricane Ike

As I post this, we are still without power at our house. Thankfully, though, we only suffered some tree damage, lost part of our fence, and lost the spark arrestor off of our chimney. If this was only a Category 2, that made it all the way to Sugar Land, I'd hate to see a Category 4.
The bigger issue with our neighborhood is that a tornado went down Lexington Blvd, though between Williams Trace and Dulles. Here are some photos of it's aftermath that we took on our way over to my brother's house. Not sure how long the power will be down, as some of the poles on Lexington were snapped in half.

Oh my goodness! I'm glad things weren't worse, but that all looked pretty scary. We are keeping everyone in Houston in our prayers.
