Power Outage!

I am so sorry for my absence! When Hurricane Ike blew through OH, we lost power for 11 days, 18 hours--not that we were counting! :) I am now back and will try to get you caught up on all of our activities lately. Here are a couple of picks of heroes from, Louisiana.

The back of our house and our damage.Wind Storm 2008 024

From the front of our house, how far the tree branch hung into the neighbor's yard. Wind Storm 2008 016

We were so blessed that the neighbor's whose tree it was helped us with cutting off the branches, etc to reduce the weight onto our other neighbor's fence, phone line, etc. Our other neighbors ran us two extension cords--one to the garage to keep the refrigerator/freezer running and one into the house so Ralph could work. Our house church came and cut up the tree and moved it out back for us. Praise the Lord for His watch care over us during this time.
