Yes, we evacuated Ike. We had an extended vacation with Brian's family in Dallas at his brother's home. We would liked to have returned sooner, but we did not get power back until yesterday sometime around 3pm (while we were driving home). Actually we weren't supposed to have power until this next Thursday. We were returning only to be refugees at Brian's parents' house (they had power and had returned the day before). But God blessed us and gave us power right when we needed it. His timing was perfect.
We couldn't be happier to be home. We have had so much work to do today to put the inside of our house back in order - not from damage, just preparations before we left. There is still a lot to do outside, but thankfully that all boils down to trees and fence. We sustained no damage other than that.
I will share photos and more stories later, but for now I need to go kick back and relax. We have also all been sick. Mikey and Brian are the last to get this nasty cold virus we've had. Blessings to you all.
Home sweet home never felt so good!
