Thanks for praying!

We made it through ok. A part of our fence went down and we lost electricity for about 16 hours. I'm shocked we got it back so soon. There are at least 2.5 MILLION who are still in the dark, though. We're blessed that there's not major damage to our home. There's only one large tree out front and it is intact. And our pool held together and didn't overflow. It came close, but we were all out there in the rain with buckets scooping out water. Thankfully, our efforts were successful. And now that power is back up, we can drain a bit of water to make room for the upcoming rains.
Just wanted to let you all know my family and I are ok. Thanks so much for your prayers!

I love the image of you out there in the rain with buckets.
Glad you're safe.
*big hugs*
Let me know when you know any flight news.

I'm glad to hear you all made it through ok. Wow, I guess you all got lucky that power came back on so fast. I've been seeing images on TV of Galveston and all the surrounding areas and the devastation is very sad to watch.
Glad to hear you're ok.
