I just spoke with Katie E.

...and she has weathered the storm (Ike) but has no power. Her property is intact though there is a lot of debris. Her county has been declared a disaster area. She just wanted to tell everyone she was fine.

How did everyone else pull through?

Where is she? I thought she lived in Kentucky.


We just got lots of rain and high winds. Never even lost power here. Thankfully, it went more east than originally predicted, so, we didn't get the main part of the storms.

You thought right texasgirl!!!!! The storm is now headed northeast. Middie will be affected I feel sure, she's on Lake Erie, western New York is supposed to take a hit - Ike is a "big boy" and on a mission!

had high winds here, no rain which we desperately need. The rain went way north of me...apparently the big power plant lost power for over 300,000 folks(AEP), our little rural electification unit kept the lights lit. Trust me, that is the first time that has ever happened.

Glad to know Katie is safe. I hope her neighbors help with the clean up. Dh is out as I type looking for trees down on the fence

Ugh.. I had no clue! We got a bit of wind and minimal rain from IKE, it still looked pretty strong when it was going through Oklahoma... but like Texasgirl, I had no clue.

I thought Ike came through last night, when we had the monster winds. Did it circle around? It's finally getting nicer where I live. I didn't really think of it affecting anyone once it got away from the gulf states... Glad Katie's OK.
