Update

Post Ike, I'm happy to say our house made it in flying colors. I'll post pictures one day of what happened to our neighborhood and the neighborhood across the way, and it was like our house was not touched!  We have running water, which is more than most, but we do not have power, and according to the power company's website, we probably won't get power until after next Monday.  Rock on.  Jon's school was canceled for a week, so we are staying at his classmate's house who went to DC for the week.  We are "housesitting" their apartment for them, which is our way of saying that we are staying at their place because they have power!  We are so thankful for them!  We finally found internet (another lost luxury) at Schlotzky's, so we may try to visit here maybe more often until we get something.  Anyhoo-we are good and thank everyone for their prayers in our behalf! Now if everyone could pray that we might get power soon, we'll be in business!

You know you are living right when your house goes unscathed...not to say everyone else is wicked, just maybe need to drink a little less beer in the redneck state.

Oh I'm so glad everything is well! I've been checking your blog and another friend in Evanston who had to evacuate. I'm glad it's over and your house is in great shape!

I have been thinking about you everytime the news is on! I am glad that everything is okay. I love Sevy's picture with her cute friend! It has to be weird to go from two very heavily populated LDS states to being in a branch!

I'm glad nothing of yours was ruined. I hope your power comes back on soon and you guys can get back to normal. Enjoy this little break from school!
