Was that Ike in Ohio???

Boy am I glad to be here. We just got our power back this evening after losing it Sunday evening. We got hurricane strength winds and some rain from Hurricane Ike, all the way here in Ohio. WoW. Most of the town was shut down Monday and still several places, tuesday and today. All the city schools have been closed all week due to no electricity. There are still some homes with out power. Please keep them in your prayers as well as all those in Texas who have been through so much more. It was not so difficult for hubby and I, but our son (3yrs) did not understand why he could not bowl (on the Wii), watch cartoons or a dvd, or why his light would not come on in his room. No matter how many times I tried to explain it, he still would ask for all the above. Oh how much we do rely on electric. We were fortunate to save most of our food and to be able to do laundry, and eat at my Mom's. She has power through a different electric company and was only with out for a few hours. Thankfully they only live about five minutes from us. I am glad to be back online. And will have more tomorrow.
